WE ARE THANKFUL!
As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches and we count our many blessings, we are once again reminded of what a genuine privilege it is for all of us at The Robin’s Nest to work with you and your children.
We would like to say THANK YOU for all the support we have received in the way of donations to the volunteers in the classrooms, lap readers, and to the PAC volunteers for all their help. We appreciate everything you do!
COOL WEATHER REMINDER
With the cooler weather approaching, we’d like to remind you to label jackets and sweaters and perhaps exchange long pants in your child’s extra clothes bag at school.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
The Robin’s Nest is overjoyed with all the wonderful “WOW” items, smaller toys, school supplies and personal hygiene items that have been donated. What an exciting project and experience this will be for our Robin’s Nest children. Boxes will be built November 7th and 8th.
GIVING TREE MUSIC
Imagine an interactive circle of kids, all drumming together, holding a common pulse and weaving a facilitated rhythm into a cohesive musical experience. This is what The Robin’s Nest students will be experiencing when Giving Tree Music brings their drumming program to the school on Wednesday, November 8th. Their only rule- ‘if you don’t drum, you have to dance!!!”
On Thursday, November 16th, and Friday, November 17th, the children will celebrate Thanksgiving with a special feast snack. To help with the celebration, the room mothers will help set up the snack. This is not a party for all parents to attend. We ask that each child bring in a specific food item. Look for the feast sign-up sheet located outside each classroom.
REINDEER RUN IS COMING!
Get out your reindeer antlers and lace up those running shoes! The 2017 Reindeer Run is coming Saturday, December 2, 2017. The race will kick off at 8:00 a.m. at Pop Stansell Park, located at 797 Florida Avenue in Palm Harbor. There will be a 5K run, Virtual 5K run, 1 Mile Fun Run and Tot Trot races for our littlest runners. Register, volunteer and view sponsorship opportunities at www.phumc.net
THE ROBIN’S NEST SANTA SHOP
This is an exciting event for the children! The shop will be open December 4th – 8th. All children will have the opportunity during school to do some Christmas shopping for their family, grandparents, and other loved ones. The gifts range in price from $3.00 to $5.00. There are many volunteer opportunities available! Check your email for a link to sign up on line or sign up in the Robin’s Nest hallway. All proceeds from the Santa Shop help keep our classroom equipment and curriculum current and new. Watch your child’s backpack for more information.
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA
The Robin’s Nest PAC is proud to present Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 9th at 9:00 a.m., in the multi-purpose room. Breakfast buffet includes pancakes, eggs, bacon, and choice of beverage – orange juice, milk, or coffee. Your child will have an opportunity to visit with Santa so bring your camera!
