Welcome December!

 

      'Tis the season and time of year for snowy days! Please dress your child in layers for we will continue to enjoy our playground or go outside whenever possible. Even five (5) minutes of fresh air and exercise helps keep us healthy, energetic, and ready to learn. From the Holiday Pageant, to gingerbread decorating, to our festive and seasonal songs, December has many fun activities planned. 

 

        Wishing you and your family a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season!
