“Don't let the sun go down without saying thank you to someone, and without admitting to yourself that absolutely no one gets this far alone.” - Stephen King
Preschool Families,

During this past week, I have taken a lot of time thinking and talking to my family about all the things I have thankful for. This is a great time to reflect on the things we do have during these trying times. I hope all of our families were able to take this past week off and spend some quality time with their families while being safe. I am excited to share that we are partnering with our Lower School to fundraise for Riverside County Foster Kids Program this holiday season. They are asking for new stuffed animals as well books for their children in their care. They specifically asked for books in Spanish. We will have boxes in the front of both buildings for drop off locations as well as the Lower School office. Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated. All donations will be accepted from November 30th to December 11th.

Wacky Wednesdays in the Preschool
This Wednesday, December 2nd is our Spirit Day! We are asking that you come to school wearing animal prints or animals on your clothing. Last Wacky Wednesday, we almost had 100% participation! Our students were very excited to show us their outfits. 

Peter Rabbit Farms
I am thrilled to share the news that we have partnered with Peter Rabbit Farms to help bring fresh food to our Preschool for snack. They were founded in 1950, and have sustainably farmed in the same location for over 70 years. They will be providing us with educational videos for our students about farming and health eating.
