Kindergarten

December 6-10

This week, Kindergarten read the Nativity story and learned that they can prepare their hearts for Jesus’ birth by being generous to others! The class brainstormed ways they could help those in need and were eager to support those affected by the flooding. A heartfelt thank you to the families who have already made donations towards our Advent charity project for this year. It’s been wonderful seeing our classroom Christmas tree become more beautiful each day and hearing the children make meaningful connections to the true spirit of the season!
