News and Notes: December 2017

In the festive month of December, the children prepared for the holidays. The tree was purchased and was soon covered with mittens and hats for donation to The Wish Project in Lowell. The menorah was demonstrated and Hanukkah explained to the 3, 4 and 5 day children by Rachel Mark and Eileen Feldman. Ornaments and gifts were created. In the middle of the month, the children arrived in pajamas, and The Polar Express was read to them. Each child received a bell from a box left behind by a special visitor! Later in the month, the children celebrated with their families at the annual parties. Each group sang songs that they prepared during the previous weeks with guidance from Mrs. McGinness! They did a great job! The parents and other family members were amazed and awed.

On February 12 two long time (27 years!) pre-school teachers at the Roudenbush School in Westford will be here for a marionette show. The performance will be at 11AM. The two day children are welcome to attend if an adult remains with them. It should last about 30 minutes. Thank you to Betsey Anderson, a church member and former parent and grandparent of students for arranging this for us!

We have some spots available in our program for September, 2018. If you know of someone looking for a preschool, please send them our way. They can contact me at stpaulswns@gmail.com or 781/275-1383. Our next Open Houses will be on January 9th at 1:30 to 2:30PM and January 17 from 6PM until 7PM. We also will be at the BFC Preschool Fair on January 8th. Pass the word!

Lastly, I want to let you know that some children experience a bit of a regression after long vacation breaks. This is totally normal. If it occurs, it should resolve itself rather quickly. Just an FYI.

Wishing you a joyful and peace- filled holiday season.
