We dove into our monthly core virtue, Charity, by reading the book The Quiltmaker’s Gift. Kindergartners sat alongside their third grade buddies, as we read the tale of a generous quiltmaker who gave quilts only to the poor. An unhappy and greedy king demanded one for himself. The quilt maker decides to give one to the king only after he changes his mindset from greed to generosity. The book inspired the children to reflect on what makes one happy, “to get or to give”. This book was perfectly timed for the holidays and to think about the importance of giving.
Music with Mrs. Miller
Our Holiday Sing-A-Long is right around the corner! We are so excited to show our parents all the hard work we’ve done in preparing for this fun evening. Please have your student to their classroom at 5:30pm on Thursday, December 21st in festive Christmas attire (dressy is not required). Our show will begin promptly at 6:00pm and following the conclusion, we invite you to join us to walking or driving to our neighbors at TouchMark and blessing them with a few Christmas carols. We will sing 3 songs as a school community at the end of our show – and you’ll have the lyrics on your programs to take with you to TouchMark. The residents are very much looking forward to seeing us and we are excited to have this Community Partnership in giving to others. Thanks for all your support!
