Hello K1 Families,
We are in the season of Advent and the children are learning about what Advent means and the story of the First Christmas. We sent home an Advent wreath with the first candle "lit" and a Nativity scene with stars. The children can earn the stars by doing good deeds at home. We will be doing the same here at school. When a child does something kind they can hang a star by the classroom Nativity.
Important Reminders: The Christmas Concert will take place on Thursday December 14 at 10:00 AM and 6:00pm. Please dress your child in festive red and green attire along with a hat and a scarf for the Christmas concert.
