December 5th – 9th

Hi Kindergarten Families,

This week, we learned about St. Nicholas! We decorated shoes and put them on our windows, to take part in the tradition of St. Nicholas leaving gifts for people in need. St. Nicholas was full surprises this week, as he left us a chocolate coin on our shoes and sent us our new elf, who we named Chippy, to watch over us and make sure we’re preparing for Jesus’ birth; by being kind and generous to one another!

In celebration of the First week of Advent, here are Advent wreaths we created; to remind us that we are in a time of waiting and preparing for the birth of Jesus.
