This week we begin our look at winter holidays and how different cultures use lights to celebrate. We're beginning this unit with Diwali! Over the next few weeks we will also talk about Hanukkah, Yalda, Christmas and Kwanzaa. Please let us know if you have a holiday your family also celebrates during this time of year!
Fill-a-Box....Feed a Family (items needed by Friday)
It's never too early to teach our children about helping others. With that in mind, together we will fill a box to provide a Thanksgiving meal to a local family. Last year these meals were given to Latinos Unidos En Cristo (LUEC) and Igreja Presbiteriana Brasileira (IPB) in San Mateo.
Please sign up here if you would like to contribute:
