Thank you to all the families that came out to participate in the Tree Lighting Ceremony. It was a lot of fun. We are getting closer and closer to Christmas break. Please look in your child’s folder this week about our Christmas party. Thank you for all that you do!
Also, this Wednesday, December 7 at 5:30 pm is our Christmas Program. As am sure many of you have heard, First and Second grade are telling the Christmas story. The girls are angels and the boys are shepherds. All costumes will be provided. Girls should wear light colored clothes, white tights and nice shoes (white shores preferred but not required). Only their shoes will show during the performance. Boys should dress in Holiday attire. Please report to the Library at 5:00 so we can put them in their costumes. Directly after they preform, we will remove their costumes and return to watch the rest of the program.
