January 4th-8th

Hi Kindergarten Families,

Happy New Year!! We hope you all had a blessed Christmas holiday filled with warmth, love, and happiness! May the time spent with family bring you joy that lasts throughout the year.

In December, Kindergarten’s superpower was Generosity. The children enjoyed learning about how St. Nick gave to others to show his love and were excited to do the same. Mrs. D and I felt the love this Christmas season and were overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your generous Christmas gifts, cards, and wishes. We are so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school community and we can’t wait to see what the new year will bring!
