November Happenings at Holy Cross…

Thanksgiving & Community Sing Time…

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! During Community Sing Time this month, we will sing songs and hear stories about the first Thanksgiving, Pilgrims and Native American Indians. The children will help Mrs.G read a Native American Indian story that uses symbols to tell the story! We will also listen to the story Stone Soup and talk about how when everyone works together, we can help each other and accomplish a lot! On the days we listen to this story, we will be collecting food for the Food Pantry here at Holy Cross Church. If you are able, please bring a non-perishable food item (see dates below). Some suggested items would be; pasta, peanut butter, jelly, cans of gravy, bags or boxes of stuffing mix, cans of corn, peas/green beans, cranberry sauce, gallons of juice, foil baking trays. We will also talk about the special things in our lives that make us feel thankful, throughout the entire month.

** DON’T FORGET~ All children under 5 are required to have the flu vaccine before December 31st. Please bring documentation to the office as soon as your child has received their vaccination. Thank you! **

We will be having a mock election on November 3rd and 4th, to teach the children here at Holy Cross about voting! We will be making the very important decision as to which is our favorite
cookie………Oreos or Chips Ahoy!! Each child will be offered one of each cookie at snack time and then they will fill out a voting ballot to choose their favorite! We’ll let you know at the end of the day which one was the big winner!

Scholastic Book Fair

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair during the 1st week of December! There will be lots of wonderful books to choose from ….. just in time for Christmas!

Reading to your preschool-aged child has numerous benefits: it builds strong relationships; it improves basic speech, communication and language skills; and studies have shown that
children who are exposed to reading at an early age are more likely to do well in all facets of education. Our Scholastic Book Fair offers a great opportunity to pick out some books to
share with your children! Plus, our school will receive a percentage of all sales…….so, encourage your child’s love of reading and support our school at the same time!

Warm Clothes for Playground Fun…

The children will continue to visit the playground throughout the year. Please dress your children in appropriate clothing for the colder weather, including sturdy shoes, hats and mittens. The children love to play outdoors and it is healthy for them to be out in the fresh air. We will keep the children in only if it is raining, snowing, sleeting or the temperature drops below 35 degrees Fahrenheit. Please help us out and label all coats, hats, mittens, etc. with your child’s name.
