Choose Love: Gratitude: To be thankful for
something and want to share that feeling with others.
Reading/Writing: The children have been writing stories
each week and are beginning to read in their “just right” books. We have focused on letters, sounds, syllables
Math: We have been working on writing and counting to
10 and beyond.
Food Drive: The holiday season is a good time to
reflect on all the blessings in our lives. ABC Magic Moments will take this
opportunity to help families in need in the Tri-City area by participating in
the Tri-City Food Drive. This is also a wonderful opportunity to teach our
children to help and give to those less fortunate than ourselves. Teachers and
I will take time in talking with the children about giving, thankfulness and
being grateful. Our food drive will start Monday
26th November. More information to follow!

wonderful to see so many of you attend our Fall carnival and have fun with some
the booths/games we planned for your childrenJ A special thank
you to Maz (Rayan), Ramnik (Eknoor) and Hayes (Madison & Ripley) for
volunteering their time to help with the booths. We would also like to express
thanks to you for all the wonderful words of gratitude and appreciation
directed to me and my staff!

stress enough the importance of taking a few moments to read newsletters, memos,
and browse our website etc…on a regular basis. We of course welcome any
questions you may have at any time with regard to any of the above.
