Kindergarten Nativity Play

The kindergarten Nativity Play is scheduled for Friday, December 4th at 11:00 a.m. Mark your calendars and "save the date" for this wonderful production of the birth of Jesus! All families are welcome to attend this joyous event. Please help your child memorize his or her lines for the play as we have begun to practice for the play on the stage.

Parent Helpers Needed For Dress Rehearsal and Final Performance of Nativity Play!

We are looking for some parents to volunteer their time and help the kindergartners get dressed for the all school dress rehearsal on Thursday, December 3rd and the final play performance on Friday, December 4th. If you available and would like to help out, please send Mrs. Agundez a note at magundez@mayfieldjs.org. For the Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, December 3rd and the final performance on Friday, December 4th, parent helpers should report to Mrs. Agundez's room at 10:15 a.m. for further instructions.

Ginger Bread House-Making Event - Friday, December 11th, 2015

On Friday, December 11th, all three kindergarten classes will participate in our annual gingerbread house-making event. This event will take place in Mrs. Heupler's class and all three classes will rotate into her class to complete this fun project.

A wonderland of candy, frosting and fresh gingerbread pieces will be magically assembled at this special event. Long tables will be set up to accommodate parent (Dad's are welcome!) and child pairings. We are allocating 40 minutes for each child to make their own gingerbread house. The class schedule is listed below:

8:00 a.m. to 8:40 a.m. - Mrs. Heupler's class
8:40 a.m .to 9:20 a.m. - Mrs. Hale's class
9:20 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. - Mrs. Agundez's class

We request each child have a a parent, grandparent, or family friend join in the fun and help build a gingerbread house with your kindergartner. If you, a grandparent or family friend are unable to participate, please send a note to your homeroom teacher by Friday December 4th, so other arrangements can be made for your child.

The Mothers' Luncheon is scheduled for the same day of the event (11:30 a.m. in the gym) so our suggestion would be to wear clothing that can withstand the test of gingerbread house-making! We'll have some aprons available to use on the day of this event for anyone who will be attending our event in Mothers' Luncheon attire.

If other arrangements need to be made for a different class start time than noted, please contact Mrs. Heupler at aheupler@mayfieldjs.org to determine if we can accommodate your request.
