Gift donations for the Santa's Workshop MLK collection are due by Monday, December 9th at 10 am. Thank you to all who participated in the community giving program.
** Christmas Show 5 pm Thursday, Dec 19th**This show is a special way for the children to celebrate the season through song and story. Each child got to choose their own part so we will have multiple children playing Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus etc. At EDS we believe that the process is more important than the product. Because of that, it is OKAY if your child does not want to participate the day of the show. It can be intimidating to see such a large audience.
Wednesday, the 18th is Pajama day, please wear school appropriate PJ's. ALL student dress rehearsal is at 1 pm. Your child can wear their PJs to that too (we will try to get a good class photo!).
The night of the show on Thursday, please do not wear PJs or your uniform, Your child can wear something festive that can go easily under their costume. Also please leave all bows or headbands at home since most children have hats or headbands as part of their costume.
Looking forward to another magical EDS evening together!
This morning we wrapped our secret presents and put the finishing touches on our Christmas cards. This is truly one of our favorite seasons, watching the children delight in giving by making something special for their family and giving pretend gifts to their friends and teachers in our dramatic play! We had a special math workshop table, too, making our number 8 page for our number book that will be in their portfolios.
Our snack was carrots, cheese sandwich crackers and pretzels. After snack we met in our manger to choose our costumes for the pageant. The children are offered a range of options for their costumes, and some are making accessories to wear. For example, the 3 kings are making their crowns and the baby Jesus' will make their halos.
Once our costumes were perfect, we had a wonderful run through of the story. What a fantastic job they all did telling this beautiful story. We then took a well earned break outside in the fresh air until the pizza arrived.
After lunch we painted a Santa face. We also sang our Christmas songs before heading outside to meet our rides home.
