Welcome back! We are in the final stretch for 2019. These next few weeks will be busy ones for us in Kindergarten!


Early Childhood Christmas Program – We will begin practicing with the preschoolers this week, and we will begin working with the microphones! The kids are doing a great job!!!


Kindergarten Chapel – Kindergarten will be leading chapel on Wednesday, December 11 at 8:40 am. You are all welcome to join us. We ask that visitors sit in the back of the church or on the far right side. Unfortunately, we do not have enough room in our pews for visitor to join us. During chapel, Kindergarten will also present part of their Christmas program.


Hope Giving Tree – Thank you to the families that have signed up to donate to Hope’s giving tree! I will work this week on filling the holes in the list. You may bring the gifts to the classroom at any time. December 9 is the last day to bring in the gifts. Please bring the gifts wrapped. If you are unable to wrap the gifts, please let me know and bring them in by Friday of this week so that I can make arrangements for wrapping. Thank you for helping to make Christmas special for this family!


Book Fair – The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Hope the week of December 9. Generally, the book fair is open for about an hour after school each day. The Book Fair will also be open the night of our Christmas Program. This is a great opportunity to inexpensively add books to your child’s library, and to help out the school.


Christmas Party – The Kindergarten Christmas party will be on Thursday, December 19 at 2:00 p.m. in our classroom. A Sign-Up Genius has been sent out with more information and sign up to bring items for the party. Please let me know if you have any questions.




In Christ,
