Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we are very THANKFUL for lots of things at school. We were challenged using scissors this week as we cut out things we were thankful for from magazines.

We also got creative making some fun turkeys that line the hallway using watercolor paint and regular paint.

In Jesus time we learned about the First Thanksgiving and talked about why we celebrate Thanksgiving and what we are thankful for. We learned a sign language song about being thankful. Check out the video yourself:

Milk Money Collection This week your child will be taking home a milk carton. As a service project for the Early Childhood department, we will be raising money to help support a school in Indonesia. The Weider's are members at Zion and are currently serving as missionaries in Indonesia. We will be collecting "Milk Money" for the next few weeks. I encourage you to support your child in collecting money by helping them to earn money by doing extra chores or jobs around the house.

Early Childhood Christmas Service
I know it seems early to talk about Christmas but soon we will be preparing for our Christmas Service which will be on Sunday, December 12 at 4 PM. This service is an opportunity for your child to lead in worship and share blessing of Jesus' birth. After the service we will have a small reception in the church basement. All of the preschool families are asked to bring three dozen cookies to share.

Canned/Boxed Food Drive
Don't forget next week is the last week for the food drive. The Student Council will put the food together into meals on Wednesday. Our offerings we collected will allow us to get 33 turkeys to complete the Thanksgiving meals.
