Dear Families,

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. We enjoyed reflecting on what we are thankful for with students this past month. So many of them are thankful for their families, friends, teachers and their school. It has been very sweet to hear them talk so highly of their families and things they are grateful for.  Thank you for allowing us to work with your children every day. We are reminded daily of the blessing that they are to us!

December is an exciting month for us! Students are already practicing for our upcoming Christmas program. The program will take place on Tuesday, December 12, at 4:30 p.m. We ask that parents go directly to the high school auditorium. The children will come over with their teachers. Parents may send outfits for the program to school, and the teachers will help the students change into their program outfits in the afternoon. After the program, parents should pick up their children from the teacher in the auditorium. We look forward to sharing the Christmas joy with you on December 12!

Blessings to each of our families this Christmas season!

In Christ,

Melissa Doxtator
