 Dear Families,

It was so lovely to meet with you last week.  It’s fun getting to know everyone and learning more about your delightful children.  Thanks for your support.

We are very busy in preschool, as “the holidays” have begun.

We are learning new songs and poems, reading Thanksgiving stories and making Thanksgiving art and crafts.

The children will hear the story of the Good Samaritan. They will discuss ways to show love to others. They will identify others as neighbors and describe ways to help.

We will learn: Me gusta (I like) No me gusta (I don’t like)
