Dear JK Families,
Today is the first day of Advent (the time of preparation for Christmas), and this week we will be talking about the ways we will be preparing for Jesus’ birthday. This will include lighting candles on the classroom Advent wreath before we pray and adding a new piece to the Advent calendar each day. We will also read the book “The Sparkle Box” by Jill Hardie and the children will add illustrations of their daily acts of kindness (“birthday presents for Jesus”) to our classroom Sparkle Box.
This week, as you know, the JK will begin attending Chapel on Tuesdays as well as Thursdays. Please make sure that your child wears his/her red sweater on each of those days.
This week and next week our school will be busy preparing for the Thursday, December 12 Christmas Concert at 6 p.m. For this event, all of the students will wear dress uniforms which include long pants for the boys, jumpers for the girls, and red sweaters for all. On that evening, Mrs. K and I will be in front of the Hinde Hall steps at 5:45 p.m. where the JK children will gather. If you arrive before that time, be sure to stay with your child until 5:45. After that, you can find seating in the church. Following the program, you will also pick up your child from the Hinde Hall steps.
Please note that Friday, December 20, will be a half-day and the students will wear their dress uniforms. They will arrive at school at the usual time and then, at 11 a.m., the school will have what is known as “Closing Chapel” or the last Chapel service before the Christmas break. It will include songs, candle lighting, and a Nativity play performed by the Senior Kindergarten. All parents are encouraged to attend this special Chapel and school will be dismissed for the holidays following the service.
These are some dates to note on your calendars:
Friday, December 5: Coronado Christmas Parade: 6 p.m.
Thursday, December 12: all school Christmas Concert: 6 p.m.
Friday, December 13: Movie Night on campus: 5:30 p.m.
Friday, December 20: dismissal for Christmas break following Closing Chapel
Monday, January 6: school resumes
Many blessings to you all,
Mrs. Mary LeDuc
