Dear parents,

As always, we are deeply thankful for your continuous support and help. We extend to you our best wishes for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving Day!

Also, we want to thank all the parents for taking the time to attend our virtual parent- teacher conferences. It was a pleasure to meet all of you and discus your child’s success together.

We spent past two weeks learning all about Thanksgiving. We decorated our Turkeys, collected leaves, made our handprint Turkeys, read books about Pilgrims and shared our thoughts and feelings of “What are we Thankful for?”

We will continue the fun in December with lots of new activities about winter and holidays. We will continue with our curriculum, letter of the week, number of the week, recite every morning letters and sounds, find words that begins with the letter of the week, learn the sign language for the letter of the week, calendar/weather and even recite months of the year and days of the week in English and Spanish.


Our theme for this upcoming two weeks is “Winter”

We will be talking/ learning about Winter, the change of seasons, how do we adapt to the new season. We will continue with the letter of the week, and the numbers of the week.
