Happy December Kinder families! The Kinders had their first Code Yellow Lockdown Drill this week and they did a wonderful job listening to instructions! As we reach closer to Christmas, we have been celebrating the Advent season with a special Advent Calendar. We hear from different scriptures while thinking of ways we can be kind to one another in preparation for the upcoming birth of Jesus! The Kinders have been so caring towards one another, we hope these acts of kindness have come home with them! The Kinders are very excited to host this Friday's Second Sunday of Advent assembly on December 9th. We hope that you are able to join us!

Week of October 17 - 21

Hello Kindergarten Families,

We hope your children were able to talk to you about our fun filled week last week! We used our senses to go on a nature walk and focused on what we could hear! The children were great listeners and worked hard to create a class book on their experience! This will be circulating to all families, so you can enjoy it as much as we did! The children are looking forward to their field trip to the pumpking patch this coming Thursday!
