SCHOOL WASH THANK YOU’S
Special thanks to the Monday PM Class and those who came for a make-up. The school wash went well and the school sparkled.

You will be invoiced 60 days after your originally scheduled wash date.

KEEPSAKE FUNDRAISER - UPDATE
Keepsakes are in full swing! These will be done in all classes this coming week and if we run out of time we will continue when we return from break! Parents who wish to bring in other siblings may email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an alternate time. This is a big fundraiser for LW and a great way to help the school while getting a LOT of holiday shopping done! Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles LOVE these personalized pieces! Tiles are also available for our outside wall. TIP: Think about what you want your keepsakes to say before you get to class - you can always check Pinterest for ideas! If you missed pre-order time, you can check with Mireille if there still available pieces and place an order with her directly.
CPR CLASS COMING SOON
We finally found a new CPR instructor and our first CPR class will be held on Monday Dec. 10th here at the school. It is limited to 10 people, so do watch for a link to sign up in next week's announcements. It will fill fast!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
A sweet moment of feeling comfortable in the Little Wonders classroom, as observed by a fellow classmate...
Parent asks Child: "Where are your socks?"
Child responds: "I put them in my cubby!" (Child is referring to the area beneath the sign-in clipboard where parents store their things.)
