Week 19 Dec. 9 - Dec 13

Dear Parents,

We hope you all had a great weekend!

Please take note; the gift exchange will be on Wednesday, December 18th. If you choose to have your child participate, please have him/her bring his/her gift this week. Again, if you have a boy, your child needs to get a gift for a boy. The same goes for girls. The gift should be no more than 150 Lps. This is a very fun activity and we hope that all children participate.

The annual Discovery Song Fest is on Friday, December 13th, at 1:30 p.m. If you would like to eat lunch with your child on that day, the cafeteria is offering a Christmas Lunch. The order forms are in your child’s folder.

This week, your child will be inquiring into the following:
