Monday Note – Dec. 10-14, 2018
December 10-14, 2018 Knowing Jesus, Growing in Faith, Serving God’s Children
Dear Preschool parents, www.zionrc.org
A Peek at the Week: This week in Jesus Time we learn about the angels and shepherds, found in Luke 2:8-21. We learn that through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can share the good news of our Savior’s birth with others. Our Bible words are from Luke 2:11, “Unto you is born…a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Monday-We will be working some top-secret Christmas gifts and play a “roll and color” number game to work on number recognition. We will also visit the school library, so please help your little bring their book back. We will have our hearing screened this morning as well.
Wednesday-We will have Jesus Time in our room. Our Chapel offering this month goes to help support Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch. We will be working with Letter Ee this week. Please help your child bring something that begins with Letter Ee on Wednesday. We will also have Music time with Mrs. Schmitz.
Friday-We will have small group work that includes wrapping our secret Christmas project, practicing our nativity roll and graph again, decorating playdough Christmas trees with beads and being letter Ee letter detectives.
Books of the Week: Candy Cane Christmas by Helen Haidle, The Enormous Elephant Show, and Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s Christmas by Joy Cowley
From the Teacher’s Desk:
*Zion’s Youth group will be sponsoring the Kids’ Christmas Extravaganza on Sunday, Dec. 16 from 12-5pm. If you need some time without kids to Christmas carol, shop, wrap presents or take a nap, sign your kids up for this event!
*We will be doing a book exchange during our Christmas party on Dec. 19. Your child will need to bring one WRAPPED BOOK (suitable for a boy or a girl) and then will get to choose a new book to keep. Our party will begin at 10AM. There is a sign-up on the preschool classroom door for items that are needed for the party. If you can donate some of them, please sign up! Thank you in advance.
*Our last day of school for 2018 will be Thursday, Dec. 20th. We will have daycare until 5:30PM that day. School and daycare will resume on Thursday, January 3rd.

As you go through these busy weeks, remember that God would rather give up His only Son than give up on you! Please feel free to call/email me anytime with questions or concerns.
