The “Giving Tree”
December 2nd – December 13th
The “Giving Tree” is a beautiful holiday tradition that we celebrate at Kinder Works. Each year we decorate a tree with paper ornaments; each ornament bears the name and age of a local child in need. Your child can choose one of these ornaments and become a “Secret Santa” for that child.
Visit our “Giving Tree” in the Atrium to choose an ornament with your child. Please return your gift in a gift bag, with the ornament as its tag, by placing it under the tree on or before December 13th.
Watching your child thoughtfully pick out a gift for a child in need will warm your heart!
Pow-Wows: a “Circle of Friends”
Monday & Tuesday, November 25th & 26th
We celebrate the Great Spirit of Friendship at our annual “Circle of Friends” Pow-Wows, to celebrate multi-cultural awareness, acceptance of diversity, as well as giving and gratitude. The children don their own creative costumes and chant and sing together before sharing a friendship snack.
All Preschool and Kindergarten classes gather together in the Gym on Monday, 11/25 at 2:30PM & Tuesday 11/26 at 10:30AM. All Kinder Works children and their parents are welcome to attend.
Wednesday, November 27th
Please mark your calendar and sign up for a Parent-Teacher “getting acquainted” Conference (invitations to our “Sign-Up Genius” were sent out today). Our fall conference gives you an opportunity to chat with your child’s teachers, share information, and get to know one another. You will also be introduced to our Profile and Portfolio process. Our Kinder Works Standards and Curriculum Guides will be available, as always, for you to review.
You will receive a copy of your child’s Profile prior to conference time. This is a record of observations of his or her development here at school. We look forward to seeing you at your conference!
*Please note that Wednesday, November 27th is not a regular school day; there will be no classes held on this day.*
November 4th – 18th
November’s EQ project is about sharing with those who are less fortunate than ourselves. At this time each year, we provide complete Thanksgiving Dinners for local needy families with children!
Our Kinder Works children and families are invited to participate in this Thanksgiving food drive. Look for donation baskets at arrival and dismissal times. Contributions will be accepted through November 18th. Listed below are some suggestions for your contributions:
~ Gift Card for a turkey
~ Bags/boxes of potatoes
~ Stuffing (boxes)
~ Non-perishable desserts
~ Non-perishable vegetables
~ Gravy (cans)
~ Non-perishable fruits (cans/dried)
~ Cranberry sauce (canned)
In addition, each class will make a festive centerpiece to add to the baskets. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity!
