Skating Day

We had a positive start to our skating experience in kindergarten.  Thank you to one of our parents for sharing a few pictures!

We greatly appreciate all our parent helpers!  Please feel free to come out on the ice for our next skate on January 8th at 9:15--we have grippers for shoes in case you do not want to wear skates.  The more hands we have on the ice, the more assurance and confidence some of our new skaters will have!


As part of our Christmas party next week, we will celebrate Los Posadas.  Los Posadas is a holiday tradition in Mexico celebrated for nine nights leading up to Christmas.  We read several stories to help us understand its traditions a bit better, one of which is breaking open a pinata!  We make our own pinata, a fun and sticky process.  The students voted today that it should be in the shape of an evergreen tree, so we're all going to get to work on it tomorrow.  A note will go home this week asking for donations to help fill up our pinata.

We have A LOT of celebrations in the next few weeks.  We will learn about St. Lucia, Christmas, Hanukkah, as well as have our Lower School Holiday Program and Polar Express PJ Day.  Please be on the lookout for some notes going home as well as blog updates.
And of course, stay posted for updates with Biobuddies and our Hanukkah party from this week as well!
