Christmas is coming soon! Our class will be busy ‘little elves’ over the next two weeks. Here is what will be happening:
Christmas Crafts and Projects
Crafts: I am asking each child to bring in $4 by Friday Dec. 12th to cover the cost of these special projects. We have a few Christmas crafts and gift items we will be making. I know these are special keepsakes that families will often keep from year to year. Unfortunately the school does not cover the cost for such items. I am asking each child to bring in $4 to help cover the costs as I will need to go shopping and buy the supplies.
Gingerbread Santa Sleighs: One of our projects will be a Gingerbread Santa Sleigh. On Tuesday Dec. 16th at 9 am we will be making these with graham wafers and royal icing. I am asking each child to bring in a bag of candy for this project. I will divide all the candy up and then each child will get a mixed bag to decorate their sleighs. All the other items (chocolate Santa, Hershey kiss reindeers, licorice reins, graham wafers, royal icing, paper plates, and baggies I will provide). I will also be needing parent helpers on this day to assist us with the construction. Are you available from 9 -11 am? Please let me know- we would love to have our parent’s help with this project!
Christmas Concert: Our concert is on Thursday Dec. 18th. We will have two sharing times @ 10:20 and again @ 1 pm. Our class will be a part of the choir. We will be singing 4 songs with the other primaries. We will also perform two pieces later in the program by ourselves. We will be performing one song titled Seven Feet of Snow and one poem titled Dangerous Contraption. I have told our grade twos they will wear our blue Parkcrest choir shirts and I have asked them to wear black bottoms (skirt or pants is fine- as long as it is solid black)
I would also like our class to wear a colourful scarf and toque. If you are able to ensure they have this tomorrow that would help greatly so we can begin rehearsing with it on. Please ensure your child’s hair is neatly combed and pinned back out of their eyes on this day. Thanks for your help with this. We want them to look and sound their best for their families!
