Elementary After School Care December Newsletter 2017

“Winter is upon us, with the cold weather near, where the days get shorter and the nights get longer, with snow just around the corner. Please bundle up and stay warm!”

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

For the month of December we’ll be focusing on the different seasons and their respective holidays.

The virtues this month are about “Generosity” and “Helpfulness”, with the focus not being about gifts but lending a helping hand where needed.

This year the After School Care children, would like to do a “Secret Santa” by making craft items to give to each other and in turn show an appreciation, for something that is made from the heart.

This year we’ll have a Food Donation box for non-perishable food for our local food bank and a reminder that any time, is a good time to give not just this holiday season. Give a can, take a can or share a can!

We’ll be having a holiday Christmas party on December 21st with games, favors and food. Please feel free to share a peanut/treenut free item or bring a non-perishable food item but neither is required to attend!

If you have any ideas or concerns, please feel free to voice them, either directly in person, by phone, or by email.
