12.3.12 - Good Morning 4's Families

Dear Families,
We have a busy week ahead as we prepare for Christmas.  This week we will be using our noses to investigate the Sweet Smells of Christmas.

The Extended Day kids are excited to practice their new skill of sounding and blending letters into words.  We’re Reading! 

The children continue to practice for the Christmas Program, The Best Thing About Christmas.  They have learned lots of songs and each child will have a speaking part.  Our Christmas Program is on Sunday, December 16 at 10:45am.

Thanks to all who returned your Holiday Tradition sheet.  They are displayed on the bulletin board and the wall in the Commons.  It has been a blessing to read about the special traditions that you are establishing with your children.  Also in the Commons is the Mitten Tree.  We will be collecting mittens, hats, scarves and socks through Dec 20.  These items will go to the children at the Community Transitional School in Portland.  Thanks for your generosity!

At Our Redeemer the three Wednesdays before Christmas, December 5th, 12th, 19th, are set aside as Family Gathering Time.  Plan to join us for dinner, a Christmas reflection, singing and a kid-friendly activity (all free).  Dinner is served upstairs in the church from 6:00-6:30pm with activities to follow.   I hope that your family can join us for any or all of the Family Wednesdays.

May Jesus grant you energy and peace as we prepare for His Birthday, Christmas!
