"Wishing, waiting, wanting things...we forget what this time brings. Gifts are nice, but there's another—the true gift is we have each other." (From "Llama Llama Holiday Drama" by Anna Dewdney.)
December is a magical time of year for many children. They are busy at home and busy at school practicing for concerts, making gifts for families and enjoying holiday parties. With all of the excitement this month brings, the children in Room B will take time to stop, rest and reflect on things that make this season so special: family, friends, peace, kindness and love.
This month, our class will talk about the light inside ourselves and discuss the many ways that light is celebrated around the world. We'll spruce up our room with festive decorations made with our very own hands and bake yummy treats that make our room smell delicious!
Here are a few upcoming events to remember:• Tuesday, Dec. 17 – B3 holiday party• Wednesday, Dec. 18 – B1 holiday concert at 10:30 a.m. in the meeting house• Thursday, Dec. 19 – B3 Holiday concert at 10:30 a.m. in the meeting house• Friday, Dec. 20 – B1 holiday party• Monday, Dec. 23 – Friday, Jan. 3 – School closed for the winter holiday• Monday, Jan. 6 – Classes resume• Monday, Jan. 20 – Martin Luther King Day of Service (no school)• Tuesday, Jan. 21 – Preschool parent-teacher conferences• Wednesday, Jan. 22 – Preschool parent-teacher conferences• Tuesday, Jan. 28 – Preschool preference forms for 2014 school year due
