 >Tuesday, November 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm ~ KinderClub Explorers 

Due to the dynamics of this group, there WILL NOT be a performance. However, we will rehearse with the group just as a practice. Hopefully, things will change in December so that we can put on our Christmas program.

GOOD NEWS > In place of the performance KINDERCLUB will have a FUN FEAST just for the students. I will post a list of food items needed for the feast. As protocol this year, all foods need to be bought and be in the original wrapper. Suggestions: microwavable, individual mashed potato cups; chicken OR turkey nuggets; a variety of individual vegetable cups > peas, corn, green beans???; individual fruit cups or applesauce; rolls and butter (we will warm them in the oven); pumpkin pie w/redi-whip; individual apple juice; fresh grapes; stuffing (Stove Top?)w/ cranberry sauce;

turkey-themed napkins, plates, (large & small) and silverware.

Christmas Programs

Kindergarten Explorers will present their Christmas program on Wednesday, December 22, 2021 @ 1:00 PM

KinderClub Explorers> If we rehearse as a group enough times there will be a performance OR we will have a class party instead. There has been a lot of absenteeism making it difficult to rehearse as a group to make this performance possible. An update will be posted within the next week so you can plan accordingly.        

Only one adult permitted - no siblings > enter and exit through the downstairs back door. No visitors will be permitted upstairs. Masks must be worn while in the building.

Winter Break > December 23, 2020 ~ January 1, 2021.

Exciting news! Beginning in January one parent will have the opportunity to come inside the building at the end of class. After all Explorer students have exited the building, the parent of the leader for the day will be escorted by their child to see our room and what we are working on. It's mandatory that parents wear a mask and have their temperatures taken. If you are unable to stay after class when it's your turn, please let Miss Andrea know in advance. These times cannot be made up. Parents aren't expected to stay more than ten minutes. This time cannot be used as a parent/teacher conference. An appointment has to be made for this, children are not permitted to attend conferences.


All Explorer levels will be making a snowman for our Snowman Village! We will begin the process in the classroom then send home the snowman to be embellished as a family project. I am anticipating that all snowmen will be returned by the end of January so a display can be created on the entryway table so all can sneak a peek as each snowman is returned for the village. Be prepared to wear a mask when coming inside the building.
