October finds the kindergartners all settled in. We have had fun learning patterns and finishing up the letters of the alphabet. We attended our first mass with our 7th grade buddies and are we looking forward to our class trip to Duffield's farm on October 15th. In preparation for that trip, we are studying how pumpkins grow. We even made a cute booklet to illustrate the process!
November is a month to be thankful. Our classes are putting together baskets of food for those in need. We are also gathering toys for the children in Camden. It is always so nice to see how giving our kindergartners can truly be. November 16th will be our schoolwide Thanksgiving Luncheon and November 21st will be our Kindergarten classroom feasts. So much to look forward to in this month!
During the month of December the children will learn that Advent means a time of waiting for the birth of Jesus. We will make Advent wreaths in the classroom and attend an Advent Prayer Service. Each hallway in the school is decorated to portray one of the candles/weeks of Advent. Together they will make an Advent wreath. Our hallway is the purple candle of Peace. The children are loving the bright decorations! As the months goes on, we will be writing letters to Santa with our middle school buddies. It is always a fun time when we get together! Lastly, we look forward to our Christmas Concert on December 18th and our class parties on the 20th. Merry Christmas!
