During December, we will be adopting one family in the community as our own ‘Giving Tree’ goes up in our lobby. We are working with the FAM Adopt-A-Family Program in San Clemente. We ask that you pick an ornament from the tree, purchase the requested item and return it wrapped, with the ornament attached. Our family we chose is a single mom with two girls ages 4 months old and 4 years old. We thank you in advance for your support of this wonderful program. If you are interested in adopting a family for the holiday season, please visit their website at www.family-assistance.org.
In the classrooms, the children will be learning about different celebrations around the world. If your family celebrates any special holiday, please let your teachers know so they can share interesting facts with the class. Our literary focus will be on “The Giving Tree” by Shell Silverstein. The children will be reading this book throughout the month and celebrating the season of giving.
We have a lot of exciting events during the next few weeks before the holiday break. Please mark your calendars with the important dates of our Santa Visit on the 14th and Holiday performances and parties.
Our Winter Holiday Performances will be on December 20th and 4pm. Walkers and Pre-Primary will have a family sing-a-long, followed by a classroom party. Primary and Kindergarten will perform for families in their classrooms and have a small holiday party after. Please be prompt and plan time for parking and getting situated in the classroom prior to 4pm.
School Spirit Week will be December 17th-21st. Monday is Holiday Hat Day, Tuesday is Wear Red and Green Day, Wednesday is Crazy Sock Day, Thursday is Jersey Day, and Friday is Pajama Day.
From all the staff at SC Montessori, we wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and a Prosperous New Year!
