Christmas in the Kitchen That is the title of our Young Child’s Christmas Service this year! Please make sure to save the date! Tuesday, December 11th at 6pm in the Church. This joy-filled Christmas musical gives every Littlest Angels’ student the opportunity to tell the Christmas story in a very fun way! We will have a professional videographer who will record the service and then produce a DVD that every family will have the opportunity to purchase. Information and an order form will be in your child’s folder soon.

With Heartfelt Gratitude! We want to thank all our wonderful Littlest Angels’ families for supporting/donating to the Family Giving Tree event! Thanks to all of you we were able to bless several families this Christmas and help teach our students that Christmas is about giving. An extra special Thank you to our classroom coordinators- Kelly, Allison, Tina, Holly and Kristin.

Books from Santa? Yes! Read All About It… Santa is coming to Littlest Angels on Wednesday, December 19th and Thursday, December 20th. He will pass out a book to each child he visits.

PARENTS, SANTA NEEDS YOU TO BE HIS HELPER! PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS:

  1. Purchase a book for your child (Please buy two books if your child attends both days- one for each day).
  2. Gift wrap the book.
  3. Label the giftwrapped book clearly with your child’s name.
  4. Send it to the school by Friday, December 14th. Please discreetly give it to your child’s teacher in a bag.

 

Santa will pass out the books when he comes to visit!

Thank you for your help!

(If your child is not fond of Santa please let his/her teacher know in advance. We want this to be a happy experience.)

 

Your Presence is the best gift you can give!

In December our Bucket Filler virtue will be “Giving”!

During this time of year we focus on what we can give to others. But I have realized I sometimes mistake what I can give with what I can buy for others. When I think about when I was little I can only name a handful of the presents I received. But I can easily remember how I felt decorating the Christmas tree with my family and then sitting in the dark room with the only light coming from the tree as Christmas music played. I remember making Christmas cookies with my mom and watching “A Christmas Story” with my family as my dad cried with laughter. My parents are no longer here, but the memories they gave me will always make Christmas merry and bright!

In the hustle and bustle that comes this time of year please remember that the very best thing you can give your loved ones is your time. I can say with certainty they will forget most of the presents you bought them at some point. But, they will never forget your presence and the time they spent and the memories they made with you.

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and a very happy New Year!

Katie O’Malley,
Director
