It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Nursery!

We have been busy crafting and practicing for Grandparent's Day.

Many of the things we have been working on are surprises so there are no pictures.

We would like to thank Panos & his family for sharing a special treat for his birthday!  We had Birthday Bananas!!!   
So much fun:-)

We have several kids with allergies and I want to thank all of you for respecting the need to keep our environment safe and thinking outside the box.

We have been talking a lot about the birth of Christ in Religion.  Some of the language that is used is "Mary is Jesus' Mommy", "Joseph is Jesus' Daddy on Earth", "God is Jesus' Daddy in Heaven".  The children thought it was great that the Wise Men brought birthday gifts to the baby Jesus.  They fondly refer to those gifts as " Frankincense, Golden, & Murph".  :-)

We have been practicing hard for  our Grandparents’ Day celebration on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

On that day, you’re probably aware that your children will be singing two Christmas songs right before the start of the Christmas Show and Nativity. If you would like to see your children sing and watch the Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Lower School students perform that morning, feel free to attend. The show will take place in the school gym, beginning at 10:00 a.m. You may stay for just the Nursery students' songs or stay for the entire performance.
After the performance, the children and grandparents will go off to enjoy their lunch. We know that it’s a rare opportunity for them to share some special time together.

***When the Nursery students are done singing,  they can sit with the grandparents/special person to enjoy the rest of the show.

One of the biggest transitions at this age is learning to work and/or play together.  In PE, groups worked together to build towers.  When it got to tall for them to reach, they had to problem solve. Here you see how they figured out that they needed to pull over the tower and stand on the bleachers to reach the top.  Good work!


Throughout the Advent season,
Holy Child will be collecting materials
to support The Providence Center.

The Providence Center provides educational services
to the community in the Fairhill section of Philadelphia.

In the midst of the struggles that accompany such statistics,
The Providence Center offers the hard-working families of this neighborhood
education, love, and possibility.

Holy Child aims to help with that mission through Operation Advent.

Please help however you can by donating from the items on their wish list.
