Our School

Dear Families:

Welcome to the Season of Kindness, our favorite time of the year!

December is sure to be a busy month! We are excited to celebrate the holidays with the children and our faculty. How wonderful it is to learn each other’s family traditions, beliefs and customs. If you have that special book to share or favorite decoration to make, please share. Isn’t that what the holidays are about?

Our November Food Drive was a huge success! All donations went to Help for People, our local food bank. We had almost 1500 food items! Thank you to all who donated, no matter how small. It made a very big impact. Help for People was very thankful and put together multiple Thanksgiving Day baskets.

December 1st through December 18th, we will be running a toy drive, collecting new wrapped, or unwrapped toys. We are proud to partner with Team Green Basketball Camp. The toys will benefit children who are less fortunate and will be distributed at a holiday event starring Santa Claus at the Wyandanch Youth Center.

December 14th from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm, is our Winter Wonderland! This is our biggest family event. We will be having a hot chocolate bar, DJ, and crafts for the children. (We also would like to have a Santa appearance! If you know someone that would like to volunteer as a Santa, let us know! We have the suit.) As always, we have full access to the parking lot next door at Gossips and against our building at KFC. Please do not park on or along the grass.

As a friendly reminder, we are CLOSED Monday, December 25th for Christmas Day. Our amended hours for Tuesday, December 26th: opening at 8:00 am – 7:00 pm.

Have you seen your classroom’s Family Board yet? Please find reminders regarding school and family events. You will also find the monthly calendar, menu, and weekly lesson plans. Generally, your child’s classroom mailbox is by this board as well. If you have any questions regarding anything on the family board, please feel free to ask your child’s classroom team.

As always, we thank you for your continued support. Be sure to check out and “like” our Facebook page for fun pictures and contests. Share your holiday pictures and traditions.

We wish our faculty and families a very safe and happy holiday season.

Best wishes,

Lauren, Jessica, Jessica L and Marissa
