We are past Halloween and now the holiday season begins. Our children in the Blue, Purple, Red and Yellow classes will be presenting an evening program for their parents, families and friends on Thursday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m. This evening of songs, musical activities, a slideshow and refreshments is a celebration of the two and a half months they have been in school learning and singing together. We are so thankful for the many families who have entrusted their children to our school!

Thanksgiving is, of course, our main focus in the month of November. How did this turkey feast get started in the first place? What did the Pilgrims and Native Americans do for the three days they spent together when there wasn’t even football to play or watch? Just as the name of the holiday would suggest, they gave thanks!! There was no doubt in the Pilgrims’ minds that God was their shepherd and they gave Him credit for every good thing that had happened to them. Their new Native American friends, their winter supply of food, their humble homes and their health were all gifts from above. This is the spirit of thanksgiving we hope to pass on to our students, their families and all of our friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!
