We will be starting the morning off right, with yummy fruit smoothies and tasty flapjacks with Mrs. Jess in our culinary classroom, followed by a visit from the jolly, rosy-cheeked man himself, Santa, as he sits down with the children to share one of his favorite Christmas stories. Students will wrap up our pajama party with Miss Mariah in our creative classroom, as she guides your young artist through a fun hand-painted holiday-themed keepsakes (to give as a gift or display for years to come).

In the theme of giving, if you feel encouraged to bring along any art supplies, an unwrapped toy or extra roll of wrapping paper, we will have a donation basket available that will be passed on to help families in need this holiday season.
