We have a very fun week planned for the children and we would like to invite you to join them when you can.  Christmas Week will be December 15th--19th from 9:00--12:00.  The children would love to share their experiences with you during this week of projects, games, baking and reading.  This is the schedule that we will be using in Benton Harbor.

The children will come to school dressed in their pajamas with a teddy bear for a Teddy Bear Slumber Party.  Santa will be here to read "Twas The Night Before Christmas" and the children will have plenty of games to play.

On December 19, 2003, from 9:00 to 12:00, the children will be having a Teddy Bear Slumber Party.  We will not actually be spending the night.  The children should come to school in a pair of appropriate pajamas or sweat suits.  Nothing see-through or too short.  If the girls have nightgowns please have them wear a pair of pants under them.  They must also bring a teddy Bear or stuffed animal on that day. 

We will have many games and activities prepared for them and a special snack will be given.  Santa will be visiting us at 1:30 on this day also.   After lunch the children will snuggle down on their cots with their teddy bears or stuffed animals and will listen to the story "Twas the night Before Christmas", read by our special visitor.

This will be a very fun day and a great way to end the year 2003.  We hope that all the children and parents will participate in this holiday party.  Have a safe and happy Holiday!
