December Newsletter

Learn about what’s happening in the classroom with our December newsletter.

December already, where has the time gone?  I would like to thank everyone who came out and enjoyed the Santa Claus Parade with us on November 25, 2023.  We all had a great time. 

We have been busy here at school working away on our activities.  The Preschool children will have a visitor come to their classroom room for December.   They will have an elf on the shelf arrive in December.  

This month, we will do theme days every day. Please see the calendar.

Also this month, we will be busy working on special gifts for our parents as we prepare for Christmas. We will be talking about different things we do with our families over the holidays and writing our letters to Santa.  There will be many messy crafts going on so please try to send your child to school in clothes that are ok to get messy.  

On Wednesday, December 20 and Thursday, December 21 we will have a special visitor come to the school.

Some exciting news, we will be having our holiday concert.  This will be held on Thursday, December 21, 2023, at 6:30 pm in the gym.  We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the school and watching the children perform.  

I would like to take the time to remind everyone of the importance of calling in the morning if your child is not attending school. If you know you will be late please let us know beforehand and we can make the arrangements. 

If your child is showing symptoms of being sick please keep them at home to help stop the spread of germs. We are doing our best at the school to keep everyone safe and healthy.  We are just asking that we all work as a team and do this together.

Our MacMillan’s orders will arrive at the school on Wednesday, Dec.20.  All orders must be able to be picked up by 12 pm.  We cannot hold items here at the school as we do not have the freezer space.

Here at St.Andrew’s in the past have adopted a family for the holidays.  This year we are going to do things a little differently, we are going to collect items for the food bank and gift card donations to give to the local food bank, they are looking for donations.  We are asking that you bring in these items before the last day of school.  We will also be collecting items at the concert. And if you purchase your gift cards through FlipGive, the school will receive cash back.
