The Feast of St. Nicholas

St. Nicholas Day

St. Nicholas Day

 

Happy St. Nicholas Day! Today in religion we read the story about St. Nicholas and made stockings. We talked about the people in our lives who remind us of St. Nicholas. With your child tonight, please try to do one of the activities on the St. Nicholas handout that is located in your child’s take home folder.

Have a blessed night!

We also listened to the story of the candy cane in church today that was read by Mrs. Linn. Each student received a candy cane. Please read this to your child to review what the candy cane symbolizes.

Thanksgiving

As we get ready for the holiday, Kindergarten has had a full week of activities revolving around Thanksgiving. This week we talked about the story of Thanksgiving and made Thanksgiving story bracelets. The story bracelets taught the students the story of Thanksgiving and the true meaning behind it. I encourage all families to take time this holiday and read the booklets with your children and allow them to explain to you what each bead represents.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our 1st grade class by having a Thanksgiving feast! The kindergarten class has made turkey hats to wear at the feast in celebration of the holiday.
