This week we are trying something new with centers. Instead of the children rotating through the centers on set rotations, they are able to have some choice as to the order of the centers that they visit. The children still stay at their center for the entire rotation and they still visit all of the centers. So far, they have done a great job with the change!


Early Childhood Christmas Program – There are two papers regarding the Early Childhood Christmas Program in the yellow envelope today. The first one is a form that gives more information about the program. The students provide refreshments for the program. Kindergarten is responsible for bringing fruit. The second paper is a list of speaking parts. We have been working on these speaking parts in class. The goal is for all of the parts to be memorized by our first joint practice on December 5. The last speaking part on the paper says “All Kindergartners”. Please disregard that. That part has been assigned to a student.


Thanksgiving Break – School will dismiss at noon on Wednesday, November 27 for Thanksgiving break. ESC will be open until 3:00.


Hope Giving Tree – Thank you to the families that have signed up to donate to Hope’s giving tree. There are still spots left to fill for our family. If you would like to donate, please follow the link to the Sign-Up Genius. All sign-ups should be completed by December 2. All gifts should be returned to school no later than Monday, December 9. That is the day that we give them to our Human Care Ministry. Please let me know if you have any questions.





In Christ,
