December Happenings

December

We will be getting ready for the Advent season by preparing for the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Some important symbols will be the Advent wreath and our classroom Christmas tree. Please create a “Keepsake” ornament with your child for our classroom tree. You have the freedom to make what you want, but I stress that you make it durable (and not made out of glass for safety reasons), so that when the ornament is returned to you, you will be able to put it on your Christmas tree year after year. I have fond memories of making an ornament with my mother in first grade and I still have it! After it was returned to me by the teacher, my mother and I would put this ornament on the tree and think back to when we made it together. Now I would like to share this tradition with you! You can get many ideas and/or patterns from the internet, Google, and/or Pinterest. Please make sure your child’s writes his/her name on the ornament. It is due Thursday, December 6th and counts as a Religion grade. Thank you and may God bless you and your family this Advent and Christmas Season. I hope you enjoy your family time together!

We are getting ready for the Christmas season and thought a nice way to spread Christmas cheer is by exchanging Christmas cards with one another.  In order to make this as simple as possible to distribute, you will see a list of the children with a number preceding each name.  Please have your child address the inside of the Christmas card however you like, but please put the student’s number on the envelope.  Please note that cards without numbers on the outside will not be distributed.

We are in need of donations for 21 white, 8×10 shopping bags for each child, which can be found in Dollar Tree. We will be using it as a craft and to hold our Christmas cards. If you are able to donate these bags, please let us know in writing. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity and help!

 Please send all cards in by Thursday, December 20thThank you and Merry Christmas!

Thursday, December 6 — Feast of St. Nicholas

It is a tradition that St. Nicholas would leave small trinkets, candy, fruit in shoes of good boys and girls. We will be making shoes out of brown lunch bags. If you can donate brown lunch bags, we would be very grateful. Also, if you are able to donate a class set (21) of Christmas stickers, activity pads, candy/candy canes, etc., please place the item in a concealed bag to the main office. All food items must be nut/tree nut free. Please clearly label the package “Kindergarten” or “Mrs. Scigliano” and leave it with Sr. Barbara. She will see that I get it. Thank you so much for your help and remember “Shhhh…it’s a surprise from St. Nick!”  Please send in donations by the morning of Wednesday, December 5th. Thank you so much in advance for your generosity!
