 Welcome to December

 Kindergarten Readiness Class

December 11th-22nd

Theme of the week

Holidays around the world
The next two weeks we will be studying about the different holidays everyone celebrates in the month of December.  We will also be very busy making crafts for our Craft fair on December 20th.  The kids are working so hard and are doing amazing following directions and staying focused in our room. 
We will be drawing names on Monday of this week for our secret Santa gift in our room. Each child will draw another child's name and purchase a gift for them.  We ask that you keep the gift between $10-$15.  Would like to suggest that it be something educational for them.  I will be posting on our page a wish list for each student later this week :)

I will be up-dating lots on our page the next two weeks.  I have so much I have planned for them, just want to make sure you guys know what we are doing and planning the next two busy weeks.

Sheldon Gerau:  

I am John & Stacy Gerau's third son, and I have been apart of the program my whole life. I attended PHLC for my entire pre-school and elementary years.  I have a degree from the University of Missouri. My major is in Early Childhood Development and my plans are to work for many years with children, following in my parents footsteps.   I have joined partners with my mother and will be under her mentoring for the next few years.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with  my friends  and family.  I love to go to the lake and hunt and fish.  It has been a joy working with young children and I look forward to serving the children of Columbia, Missouri in my future.
