Kindergarten

December 14th-18th

It was another exciting week in Kindergarten as we had two guests drop by our classroom. Our first visitor was Saint Nicholas! He visited our classroom over the weekend to leave treats in the children’s shoes. He even wrote us a letter saying how wonderful our class is at helping others, just like him! And boy, was he right! A heartfelt thanks to all families who donated to our Christmas Fundraising Campaign Hampers of Hope, to help those in need in our community.

St. Nick then left a special parcel for us that was waiting at our door. Inside, was a little elf, who the class decided to name Chippy! Chippy will be with us to make sure that we continue being kind and generous to others throughout the remainder of this Advent season!
