Monday, November 23rd, was a special day for us at Preschool!  The children and staff enjoyed a special time of giving thanks to God for all of his many blessings to us, followed by a delicious Thanks-giving Feast (With turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, potatoes, and more).  All of our Pre-Kindergarten friends were anxious to wear their Pilgrim bonnets/hats that they made for our special celebration time.  The children each had fun and worked really hard shaking, shaking, shaking, a-n-d shaking their own small jar of cream in order to make homemade butter to use at their special meal together.

The month of December will be different for us this year, we will not have preschool from November 30th- December 18th.  (Our Christmas break begins on December 21st through January 6th.) NAFC School children will be home learning online to help slow the spread of covid and we will be trying to help also by taking our break.   We are praying for a normal routine again starting in January. 

Have a blessed Christmas.
