Thanksgiving is upon us! For some students, tomorrow will be their last day before break and Tuesday for the rest. Whichever applies to you, we wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving. However your family celebrates this year, hold your loved ones close and please keep our SJS families in mind. We pray we all are able to return Monday, November 30th healthy and ready to continue our preschool adventures – together!
Thank you for your contributions to both the Food Drive and Parish Sharing Program. We were a smidge short on meeting our class goal, but nothing short of goodwill and generosity. Collectively, we were told SJS raised a record-breaking number of donations for the Parish Sharing Program. That’s certainly a lot of happy hearts made this holiday season. Thank you, again!
This short week will be spent reviewing and showing our gratitude for the things that matter the most in our lives. Monday is our Day of Thanks. Dress in your best, cozy Fall outfits or come fancy in your Thanksgiving dinner party clothes! Whichever you choose, be sure to be warm! It’s supposed to be chilly this week. Also, please note, Preschool’s report cards will be going home tomorrow instead of Tuesday. Please check your child’s folder for it.
- Family Survey With the holidays upon us, we talk a lot about gratitude, what makes us happy, love, and family. Please help us with some of our holiday projects by filling the following Family Survey.
- Staying Safe in Room 5 (ISO) If you are able to find any of the following items (disinfectant spray, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, and paper towels) and get them for our class, that would be greatly appreciated. Our currently supplies should take us through the remainder of November and up to Christmas break, but we’ll definitely need to replenish, especially on paper towels. If you can get the items before break – that’s great! If you can get the items after break – that’s great, too! I understand families will need these items personally, too, so we’ll work with whatever you’re able to contribute. Thank you in advance!
- STEAM Project (ISO) We’ll be building a Christmas tree soon. If you happen to have boxes (preferably around shoebox-sized or flat Amazon boxes) ready for recycling, please consider sending them to school instead. Thank you!
