Preschool Weekly Update-Week of 12/5

God of power and mercy open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.


Hello Preschool Parents,

This week we started our new December, Winter Wonderland exploration. We introduced the AABB pattern, the rectangle, the numbers 7 & 8 and the virtue of honesty with our woodland friend, Owl. Our winter animals were the hedgehog, bear, mouse, the snowy owl and deer.

The children are learning about the Advent season. They have learned a new advent prayer that we pray every morning and the advent wreath. We attended our second, First Friday Adoration this past Friday and the children were respectful and reverent.

SPN 2022 Adopt-A-Family: Adopt-a-Family kicked off yesterday and will conclude on Monday, December 12th. This year we are supporting the Pacifica Senior Living residence in San Leandro, Alameda Meals on Wheels, and the Welcome a Stranger project. Please see the list below for how each grade level can contribute to this year’s Adopt-a-Family program of giving. Participation is optional. Your generosity is so appreciated!

  • Grades Preschool through Grade 2: Please bring in a gift-wrapped pair of warm socks or a winter scarf for a senior resident at Pacifica Senior Living in San Leandro. Please label size/gender if applicable. Preschool will have a decorated box to collect your donations. Thank you.

Preschool Annual Christmas Lunch” It has been a tradition at our preschool to host a lunch for the children on the last day of school before Christmas break. This year it will be on December 16th. The menu is macaroni & cheese, steamed broccoli florets, melon cubes and a mini cupcake. If your child prefers their own lunch, that is fine. This has always been a very popular event in past years.

Have a restful weekend!

Blessings, Ms. Grace and Ms. Hanen
