We are having a Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast on Friday! The kids will be eating turkey, soup, corn bread, friendship fruit salad, and of course, homemade pumpkin pie! Thank you for signing up to bring items - We are looking forward to making a lot of our items in class together this week. Also - we will be making a friendship fruit salad on Friday and each student will get to add their own fruit! Please send a piece of fruit to school with your child on Friday. An apple, pear, banana, or small bag of strawberries or grapes are good examples.

If you would like to join our feast and come help set up/clean up to make this a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast for our kids, you are welcome to join us on Friday. The feast will begin at 12:00 and we will need lots of help before and after that! Thank you in advance for ALL of your help! :) 

Our kindergarten classes are doing a Christmas play this year! I'm sure you have heard all about it! We will be putting on "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man". Each student will have a special role in our play. This week, we will be sending home lyrics and CDs so you can start practicing over break! More information to come. Have fun singing!


Don't forget to get your Book Orders in! They are due on Friday to ensure you will receive them before Christmas.
