Thank you to all of our families who helped with our classroom Christmas parties!










We had a wonderful time!





Wednesday, December 15


Just a reminder that because of our Christmas program, we have no carpool, Early Birds, or Lunch Bunch on Friday.  Please bring your child to his or her classroom between 8:50 and 9:05 so we can get ready to walk over to the Sanctuary with our classes.  After the program, students will be dismissed with their parents and everyone is invited to Fellowship Hall for cookies and punch.

Our four-year-olds will wear their Christmas scene costumes; all of our siblings (angels) dress in white or light-colored clothing with a halo and/or wings; everyone else wears dress/church clothes. 

Practicing For Our Christmas Program

If you'd like a preview of some of the songs we'll be singing as a whole school at Friday's program, you can click on the links below.  If you'd like to do a little at-home practice, invite your child to sing along!  I've posted the lyrics below.  (Special thanks to Caitlin Whitaker, our music teacher!)

Christmas Songs 2010


Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are


Ten Little Angels There was one, there were two,
There were three little angels
There were four, there were five,
There were six little angels
There were seven, there were eight,
There were nine little angels
Ten little angels in the band.


Knock, Knock, Knock Went Joseph
Knock, knock, knock, went Joseph at the inn in Bethlehem.
Can you shelter a family and be a big help to them?
"No room, no room," said the man in Bethlehem.
"No room, no room," said the man in Bethlehem.
(Only one child says “No room, no room….” Everyone else is quiet.)
Knock, knock, knock, went Joseph at the stable door so bright.
Can you shelter a family, for Christ will be born tonight?
"Come in, come in,"said the beasts of Bethlehem. "
Come in, come in,"said the beasts of Bethlehem.


Little Baby in the Manger
Little baby in the manger,
I love you.
Lying there to earth a stranger,
I love you.
Wise men saw the star and answered,
“I love you.”
Shepherds heard the angels singing,
“I love you”


Go Tell It On The Mountain
Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

Thursday, December 9

After freezing temperatures all week long, it was nice to be able to get a few minutes outside today.  We made sure we were well-bundled up!  As the cold weather continues, remember that our school follows the closing schedule of Savannah-Chatham Public Schools. (Just in case!)


As we prepare for Christmas, we're practicing our songs for next Friday's program and we're busy creating Christmas surprises for our friends and families.  Everybody helps out, even our grandparents!  (Thanks for all you do for us!)
