News and Notes: December

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 North Chelmsford. The Menorah was lit. Ornaments and gifts were created. In the middle of the month, the children arrived in pajamas, and The Polar Express and/or Snowman at Night was read to them. Later in the month, the children celebrated with their families at the annual party. 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.

We have some spots available in our program for September, 2019. 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 House will be on January 16 from 6PM until 7PM.

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.
