PreK-4 (3-Day) eNews

“Run, run as fast as you can! You can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man!”  We had such fun reading and then comparing/contrasting different versions of this classic.

What an exciting and wonderful time of year!  We love watching the wonderment and joy that the children have as we discuss Christmas.  It is fun to hear the children discuss decorating trees, baking cookies, and wrapping presents.  Our favorite part, though, is that we are learning about that first Christmas so long ago and the greatest gift ever was given, our Savior! 

Please see the information below regarding our book exchange during class Christmas parties.

Next Week

  • Bible Verse: Luke 2:10-12 “The angel said, Don’t be afraid, I have great news! Today a Savior was born for you in the city of David.  This will be a sign; you will find the baby wrapped in cloth and lying in a manger.” (We will practice these verses during December).
  • Bible: The Christmas Story
  • Reading/Phonemic Awareness: We will introduce the letter “Jj” and the sound that /j/ makes (think jelly/jacket).
  • Math: #7, sequencing
  • Unit: Christmas
  • Show and Tell: Bring something that begins with the letter and sound /j/.


  • Our elementary student council has chosen to buy goats through Baptist Global Response this holiday season.  These animals will help a family in need and demonstrate the love of Christ to them. Students can choose days to dress up for $1 per day to support this ministry.
  • December 10 – Crazy hat day
  • December 17 – Christmas sweaters, shirts, or sweatshirts
  • December 8 – All School Chapel
  • December 17 – Class Christmas Party at 2:30. (With Covid cases continuing to rise, parents will not attend parties) We will have a book exchange during our Christmas party. Please send in a wrapped book ($5 limit) on or before December 15.  Please also label the book either for a “boy” or “girl.”
