Happy Friday Acorn Families!

We wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving! As a reminder, we will not have school next week but look forward to seeing you the week of November 29th. If you travel over Thanksgiving or celebrate with large groups, we ask you to be vigilant as you celebrate holidays and continue best practices such as mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing. When in doubt, please stay home with any symptoms or if needing to quarantine.  If you need help discerning if quarantine is necessary, please call the office, and we are happy to talk it through with you.

This break is also a good opportunity to sort through your toys and books add consider donating some to Elf Louise.  Elf Louise is an Acorn alumni family who provide donated toys and books to families in need during the Holidays.  The Acorn is drop off location so feel free to bring your donated items to us, and we will arrange for pickup with Elf Louise.  As a reminder, you can also help support The Acorn by using Amazon Smiles when buying presents or by making a donation for your family or in memory of a loved one.

Please be sure to read our latest blog, The Pull-Up Nation, if you are considering or struggling with toilet training.  Extended breaks are a great opportunity to address this.

When we return from break, Miss Jo will be visiting our classes to share her family's nativity set.  We will also begin rehearsals and performances of our Kindergarten Nativity Play.  These are beloved Acorn traditions and we encourage you to spend time this week sharing your holiday traditions with your children.  What are traditions you remember from your childhood? What are new traditions you can create together?

This holiday season we are thankful for each and every one of you and your children.  Thank you for sharing them with us and for entrusting us with their care.  Have a wonderful week!
