December Newsletter

November 29th, 2021 No Comments

Dear Families,

What a fabulous community we have!  I want to thank all those who donated non-perishable foods for the “Your Grandmother’s Cupboard” organization.  I also want to thank all of you who participated in our playground fundraiser.  This is such a big help to us, to offset the cost of a new “Apparatus”!

During the month of December we will be focusing on the spirit of giving, and, clearly the children have great examples of this in our wonderful families.

We’ve got an exciting month in December, including a Holiday Shop (by catalog) for the children, and, during our first week we have Pajama Days to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Each classroom will celebrate the holiday season throughout the month, participating in the holiday shop, making wrapping paper, learning holiday songs, making crafts, gifts for family, and reading seasonal stories.  (more…)

November Newsletter

Dear Families,

In November, we will be focusing on what we are thankful for.  Each classroom will be discussing this with the children, and creating artwork to express the children’s thoughts about what they are thankful for.    We will be sponsoring a page on the Toms River Macaroni Kid website, all about what we have to be thankful for, and we will be submitting our children’s work to display on their web page and in their Thanksgiving Newsletter.  We will use first names only to identify the artwork by each child.  Some classrooms may decide to do a group project.  Plans are in the works.   Please let the office know if you do NOT want your child to participate in this.  They would still do the art project in class, but we would leave them out of the submission to Toms River Macaroni Kid.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. We are thankful for our Peppermint Tree families! (more…)
