Squires Newsletter South: January 2011

Happy New Year!

2010 was a wonderful year with a lot of fun memories to look back on. December held great times of dancing toys and sugar plum fairies as the kids danced their way through The Nutcracker. They all did such a wonderful job!

We spent so much time learning about and celebrating the holidays. Thank you to everyone who shared their personal, family traditions to help guide our learning.

As December came to a close, we said goodbye to two of our friends, Shivam and Chase. We will miss them as they move on and hope we are reunited with them again someday. Also, in December, we welcomed some new friends to our class, Cobi and Henry. They are adjusting so well and really enjoying the new opportunities in our class. This month, we will welcome three more friends from the Jesters class; Cate, Shriya, and Luka will join our class this month. We look forward to getting to know them and help them grow.
