December News

Wow! What a busy month November was at VNS!! We had our first two Play Groups! We enjoyed a program about Healthy eating with Mrs. Wiengart. The 4’s and 5’s had a fantastic Thanksgiving Feast together, thank you so much to all of our families that donated items. We participated in the Federated Church’s food drive, it was exciting to add to the “mountain” of food. We had our second Monthly Meet Up with a fantastic turn out. It was fun to visit all of the Holiday craft stations. We  enjoyed our first family swim party at Wembly Club! It was nice to get out of the cold and swim with friends. The treasure hunt was everyone’s favorite part. Just think all of this was in addition to all of the learning and playing we did.

December will be another busy month of learning and getting ready for the Holidays. Our classes are busy working on some special surprises along with crafts, music and all of our regular school work. Your classroom teachers will keep you updated on days and times for your class parties and performances. As a reminder tuition was due on December 1 st . If you have any questions please contact me. The next Meet-Up date will be on December 15 th at 4:30. It will be cookie decorating. We will meet in Fellowship Hall.

Our last day of school will be December 21 st . We will return to school on January 4 th. We will begin Registration for next year in Mid January. We will also register for second semester lunch bunches when we come back in January.

I wish you all a very happy and safe Holiday season and winter break!

Take care,

Shawn

November News

Dear Families,

Happy November! October flew by in a flash and December will be here before we know it! Thank you all for joining us for our Halloween Sings. They were all smashing successes!

Everyone is having a super time at Lunch Bunch and we would love for even more friends to join us. Please remember that we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL! This includes not only peanut butter, but tree nuts as well. Please keep an extra eye on candy that comes to school in lunches. I know that it is fun for your child to choose a special piece of candy for dessert, but we will have to send home any with nuts.

We have a few exciting events coming up! Please see the attached flyers for information about an all school pool party at Wembly and a new playgroup forming. Our first Monthly Meet Up was a huge success. Many awesome pumpkins were decorated and lots of fun was had! Our next Meet Up will be held on November 30 th from 11:30-1:00. This will take place in one of our rooms at school. We do not have Lunch Bunch that day.

Ashley Wiengart will be joining all of us on November 15th to teach us all about healthy foods and fun ways to make them. Ashley’s family owns a produce company and she has started a program to teach children about healthy eating. We are looking forward to making a snack and eating some new fruits and vegetables.

Our last day of school before Thanksgiving will be Tuesday, November 22 nd . We will not have school November 23 rd ,24 th , and 25 th . We will join the Federated Church again this year in gathering canned goods for those less fortunate. The canned goods will be used to make Thanksgiving baskets. We always use this experience as a time to speak with the children about being thankful for our families and healthy food to eat. We simply tell the children that we are collecting food for some families that might need a little extra help. We will collect food the week of November 14 th . This ties in nicely with our lesson from Ashley and the conclusion of the 4’s and 5’s unit on healthy eating.

We are all so Thankful for all of our wonderful families!
