November had a very rough start with Hurricane Sandy. Thank you for your patience during the three days that we were closed due to lack of power. We hope that everyone is recovering from this terrible storm. We also had to adjust our Halloween celebration plans this year as a result of the storm and are thankful for your understanding.
As always, parent observations and conferences went smoothly. They were very informative and a lot of fun. We also enjoyed our time this month with Mr. Chris as he brought instruments from all around the world. The children had lots of fun trying to play them and listening to all of the different sounds. He also came in and we studied Country Music.
Thank you to all our parents who volunteered to help during the Thanksgiving Luncheon. We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends!

Seasons of Hope
Now that all our emergency supply of food and water is safely tucked away, we have begun collecting toys for Seasons of Hope. The toys and other items that are donated will go to children and families in Sussex County who are less fortunate. We would like to thank all of our Alpine families for their kindness and generosity!
Santa will be arriving at our school at 9am shart to visit with the children on Friday December 21st. All children are invited to join us for our morning session since Santa needs to fly back to the North Pole to prepare for his long sleigh ride around the globe. ho ho ho!! Please have your children here by 8:45am so they don't miss a thing. We are looking for some Merry Volunteers to help spread holiday cheer. Please let your child's teacher know if you are going to volunteer.
* All children under the age of 5 years are required to have their flu shot. Please send in proof of the immunization before our holiday break.
