After School Play December 3-14

After School Newsletter


Dear After School Families:

Welcome back! I hope that you had a great Thanksgiving with loved ones near and far. The children came back excited to see one another and get back into the routine.   

The children have been working on communication with one another.  When we play on the playground sometimes a friend may do something that the child may not like.  Instead on instantly running to a teacher.  They are encouraged to solve amongst themselves to promote conflict resolution skills.  Provided I am near by to help if need be.  The children have been very well with this.  They are practicing this with the smaller children.

Our December Focus:

During the month of December we will be working on our Christmas projects. In the upcoming weeks, we will be lacing our paper Christmas stocking and decorating it.  This will be the place where their Christmas projects will be stored and given back right before Christmas break.   They will also be working on family gifts, which will be a surprise given to you right before Christmas break.

Grange Minimum Days:

On December 17th and 21st the Grange will be closing at 1pm.  We will be doing Toro pick up’s as usual.  Thank you for making the arrangements a head of time.

Giving Tree:

Our Giving Tree is back!!  This is when we set up a tree and the children will be decorating the tree with socks, gloves, scarfs for those less fortunate during these cold times.  We are asking for adult size socks and gloves.

Take Home Art:

Pleas take home the art that is placed above the child’s name.  The children work hard creating their art work and are eager to take them home.

No Show Email or Text: 

We do care if we do not see your child during their normal pick up.  Emailing or texting will give us a good reference to keep track during pick up.  My email is and cell is 831-915-3324.

Have a terrific week! Miss. Laura & the Afterschool Team
