Santa and His Helpers

Santa and His Helpers is a story we made together.  It is so funny.  We enjoyed working on it and hope you like it too.
(Due to technical difficulties, click on the link to read it.  After Storybird moderates the story, all parties will be able to read it here.)

 A note from Mrs. Lee:

Can you believe that our 100th day of school will be on  Friday, January 25th? I am sure you and your child have been brainstorming what 100 items they would like to collect for their free-standing project board. After making a decision, s/he should count, arrange and display the items in an interesting way. Your child should write the title and the numbers from 1-100 near each item. Displays can be brought in anytime before Thursday, January 24th.
The Kindergarten grade level will also celebrate this monumental day with a snack party. More information will be given in January.

The thing I like best about this holiday season is that it gives me an opportunity to tell all of you how much you mean to me. Mahalo nui loa for being such special and supportive parents who have managed to make our year wonderful. I hope your home is bright with love and joy at this time of the year!  Thank you for the great memories in 2012!
Wishing you and your family good health, love, and happiness in 2013!

Tidbits to remember:

  • Thursday, January 3rd - Return to school.
  • Thursday January 3rd - Myohoji Temple Field Trip Consent Forms due. Chaperones are appreciated!
  • Monday, January 7th - Library books due.
A hui hou,

Who is Santa?

Santa is about the spirit of giving, putting smiles on little people's faces, and bringing joy and hope to their lives.  It is wonderful that this magic is kept alive in the home as long as possible.  When your child realizes the truth, your household might change, and you will long to have those magical days back again. Listen as our keiki share their ideas about who Santa is.

A note from Mrs. Lee:
Mahalo to our Room Parents for organizing a wonderful event following our Winter Program. There were so many exciting activities for the children to participate in.
What child doesn't love to decorate cookies, especially holiday ones? Now that they have mastered the techniques of decorating cookies, you can have more fun at home during the holiday break decorating your own cut out cookies!
The grab bag game with a 'left and right' switch twist was hilarious. But they were all tickled to receive a little gift to remember this day.
The potluck was simple and filled with great food.  The leftover fruits, noodles, and pizza were given to the Office Staff who enjoyed it immensely. Thank you for bringing all the delicious food.
Having you attend our class event made it a memorable day for your child!! They love these special times with their parents.
I appreciate your thoughtfulness in remembering me with the Christmas tree with all those gorgeous homemade ornaments that will be keepsakes. It is a great way to share the holiday spirit with the children.  The holiday gift is also much appreciated and will be opened at Christmas.
If you and your child wish to share holiday goodie bags with their classmates, please bring them in by Thursday, December 13th.  All goodie bags will be sent home in the blue recyclable bag on Friday. 
Dates to remember:
  • Monday, December 10th - Library books due.
  • Wednesday, December 12th - Last day for Fort Gakuen
  • Thursday, December 13th - Deadline for those who wish to share goodie bags.
  • Friday, December 14th - 11:30am, Early dismissal. No after school care.  Please pick up your child from our classroom.
