JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN

​Dear Parents,
  We hope that you had a happy and safe Thanksgiving break. Welcome back! The holidays are always a special time of year. We are excited, and are looking forward to advent. May God’s blessings be with you this Christmas season.  

  On behalf of the Operation Backpack Committee and Dardenne Presbyterian Church, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your donations. Through your contributions and other local food drives DPC is able to feed over 70 hungry children in our community each weekend. Your support is greatly appreciated.

  Our theme for the month of December is Advent - Holiday Traditions. The children will celebrate Jesus’ birth by taking part in many wonderful Christmas related activities. Other topics this month will include numbers 9 and 10, one-to-one correspondence from 0-10, number sequencing from 0-10, and space. The children will be introduced to letters J, K, and L, and sight words are, for, to has, and have.  

  Our memory Bible verse is “A Savior is born, He is Jesus.” Luke 2:11. Our Bible stories will include “The Angel Gabriel Visits Mary,” “Jesus Is Born,” and “The Wise Men Give Their Best.” The children will learn that advent is a time of preparation for Christmas and the celebration of Jesus’ birth.  

  Our Christmas parties will be held on Wednesday, December 20, during the last hour of the class period. The theme is “Happy Birthday Baby Jesus.” Our room parents may need your help in providing treats and party supplies. Please watch the parent board for sign-up sheets.  
  The children will participate in a book exchange at the parties. Please send a wrapped book to school the week of December 11. A parent volunteer will be collecting the wrapped books. Please label the gift tag as follows:

To: My Friend
From: Your child’s name 

There is a $7.00 limit on the cost of the book. Please choose a book that is suitable for either a boy or a girl.
  Do you enjoy Christmas carols? The children will be singing a few of their favorite Christmas songs during the parties for you. You are invited to sing along.

  Before you know it inclement weather will be upon us. You are encouraged to tune into a local TV or radio station to receive the latest in school closings. Adam Lamb Preschool will follow the Wentzville R-IV School District’s snow schedule. If they are closed due to poor weather conditions, Adam Lamb will be closed, too.  
  As the bad weather approaches, I would like to remind you to allow yourself a few extra minutes when dropping off or picking up your child. Please consider the traffic. Poor driving conditions will slow people down. So, please give yourself those few additional minutes that will allow you to arrive on time.

  Early registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be held on Saturday. January 20, 2018. Children enrolling in the First Year Preschool (FYP) program must be three years of age before August 1, 2018. Children enrolling in the Prekindergarten (PK) program must be four years of age before August 1, 2018, and children enrolling in the Junior Kindergarten (JK) program must be five years of age before January 1, 2019, or have a written teacher’s recommendation. Our Monday afternoon Lunch Bunch program is open to children enrolling in either the JK or PK programs. All children must be potty trained. Open registration for the general public will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018.

  Our preschool art fair and open house is scheduled on Thursday, January 11, from 6:00 p.m. - 800 p.m. A guided tour of the preschool will be provided for new families at 5:30 p.m. Additional information will be sent home on a later date.

  Here is a little food for thought. How prepared is your family for an emergency? Can your child dial 911, and state his/her name and address? Many households no longer have land lines. Do you have an emergency phone in your home? Does your child know where to locate your cell phone in an emergency? Have you taught him/her how to operate your phone? Does your teenaged babysitter have a cell phone to use when you leave the home? Be safe, and develop an emergency plan for your home.

  Here is a fun Christmas song to sing with your preschooler.

Angel Band

There was one, there were two, there were three little angels
There were four, there were five, there were six little angels
There were seven, there were eight, there were nine little angels
Ten angels in that band.
What a band Christmas morning, Christmas morning, Christmas morning soon.

  Have fun counting down the days to Christmas with your child by making a paper Advent chain. Cut out a bell shape, and attach the chain to the bottom of the bell. Next write the following poem on the bell. Enjoy sharing in the excitement of Christmas with your little one!

Christmas Bell Poem

Every night when
Prayers are said,
Remove a ring
And jump in bed.
When only the bell
Is last to chime,
Then you will know
It’s Christmas time.

Happy Birthday Jesus!!!
