I am very thankful
For my family whom I love.
For my friends, and my neighbors,
And for the Lord above.

Favorite kid foods (i.e. macaroni & cheese, canned pasta, soups, peanut butter – any canned
or boxed entrée-type items).

PARENTS – the best influence!

Parents, please remember that you are your child’s primary teacher. What you, as parents, say and do is the number one way that your children are influenced; either good or bad. The following are
some simple ways to help your child(ren) be all that they can be.
1. Pray with your children (and as a family).
2. Play with your children.
3. Take your children to church.
4. Talk the talk and walk the walk. Talk to your children about your family values and live them.
5. Reinforce at home what is learned at preschool/school. (letters, numbers, colors, body parts, counting, name writing, cutting, etc.)
6. Set boundaries for your children. Children need limits.
7. If you sense a power struggle, offer two choices. Then the child feels empowered in making the
8. If you say no – mean it and follow through with any stated consequences. Let your child be who they are, not who or what you want them to be. Remember, God designed them the way He wanted them.

• Thank you to everyone who donated toys, hats, mittens, etc. for the gift give away for
local children in need! We will bring them upstairs on Friday, December 15.
• Thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to the food shelf. The number of families using the food shelf continues to grow each month. Continue giving!

Please remember to send outdoor gear every day, unless it’s very obvious that the temperature,
including wind chill temperature, is 10 degrees or below. Some days we get calls asking whether the kids will be going outside or not. We recommend that you get in the habit of bringing the outdoor gear everyday because the weather may improve by the end of the session and we’d like to take the kids outside as often as the weather (and our classroom time) permits. It works best to pack the outdoor clothes in a separate plastic bag. As mentioned in the December Footnotes, we teach the children the order to get dressed. Mittens go on last so they can manipulate their other clothing items independently.

Inclement Weather Reminders

In case there is a lot of snow or icy roads or “polar vortex” days, this is a reminder of what we will do in the event school/child care needs to be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather. We follow what the BUFFALO-HANOVER-MONTROSE school district says on the TV stations (since our school is located in that school district).
• If public schools are delayed 2 hours in the morning, then our morning preschool sessions
will be cancelled. Child Care will open 2 hours later at 9:00 a.m.
• If the whole day is cancelled, then preschool and Child Care are cancelled.
• If the afternoon is let out early and we know before the afternoon sessions have started, we
will assess the situation and call if we cancel the session. Child Care will stay open. You can
make your own judgment calls as to whether you want to drive in the conditions.
We will change our answering machine message, group emails and Facebook to reflect what we are doing for the day. Teachers will NOT be making courtesy calls to everyone as they’ve done in the past. We get our information from the TV stations.
