December was our busiest month. Our little people worked liked Santa’s elves getting projects and gifts ready for their families and friends. I hope you all enjoyed decorating your homes with their precious projects, created by the hands, feet and the tiny fingerprints of our students. I hope everyone had a

Merry Christmas and will have a joyous New Year.



Our Christmas performance was a great success. Every child showed off their talents. We have some budding broadway stars for sure.


I also would like to thank everyone for your heartfelt notes, gift cards, and creative gifts. I enjoyed every one of them.



As we begin 2019,  Calendar Time will become our focus. This time is set aside for the children to focus on their teacher and class lessons. We will further develop our cognitive skills as the class focuses on letter recognition, counting, and other important readiness skills. I encourage everyone at home to reinforce the



importance of listening to the teacher and following directions. We are ready to advance the next phase of learning, classroom activities and participation. The children are continuing to work hard each day, doing routines and learning workshop tasks or JOBS. I anticipate a fun, challenging and productive New Year.
