Sea Star Newsletter
December 11 – 15, 2017

WOW!!! The Advent Program was amazing, and the highlight to my Christmas season! Thank you for making the time to be there. This was the first time we had 100% participation from the Sea Star Class! Yay! When I am up front witnessing the kids and their excitement and joy as they sing and wear their costumes, I am filled with the fruits of the spirit! My cup runeth over! 
My husband and I walked/ran in the Jingle Bell Run today, and we were reflecting on our Christmas traditions with our family. Our kids are older and mostly living their own lives, so we don’t see them much and we are learning to navigate the holidays in a new way…heavy sigh. I told him there was so much joy and excitement when our kids were younger, and I miss that. Then he said, “You are so lucky, you get to see that joy every day with the kids you work with.” WOW!! Yes, I do. I could not be more thankful for my job, and getting to spend time with your children each day. For the longest time I did not know what my calling was, and God kept nudging me back to preschool. THANKFUL!

Ok, feeling nostalgic and sentimental…onto our last week before break! This week we will celebrate with Christmas parties! Thank you parents for setting these up and volunteering to help out. Please see below about set up and party times.
THANK YOU for donating to our “Adopt-a-family.” And thank you for coordinating this!

Merry Christmas!!

Our Christmas parties are coming up this week. Wow! Thank you to our amazing families for coming together and coordinating! Let me know if you have questions or need help!

Our first party is on Tuesday. If you are coming to help, please arrive at 9:45 to set up (or earlier if needed). Then we can start the party around 10:00ish.
