School notes:

Thank you to all the parents who brought in the gingerbread cookie mix.  The children will pretend like they are making gingerbread cookies in the sensory table.

*I am looking for small sifters to use this week in our sensory table.  I will return them at the end of the week.

*Father John will be coming to read a story about the birth of Jesus on Monday, December 15th.

*No gym this week because of school play.

After Christmas, I will be starting the Zipper Club.  If your child can zip his or her jacket, I will have them write their name on the Zipper Club poster,  This will be hung in the hall for the entire school to see.  This will give the children some incentive to want to learn.  They really enjoyed this activity last year!
