Winter Sing and Solstice Celebration & Early Dismissal/No Aftercare

December 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We hope you will join us on Friday, December 20, for a very special afternoon filled with friendship, creativity, and lots of fun. *Please see early dismissal schedule below.
Every year, at our Winter Sing and Solstice, our community comes together to celebrate the true meaning of the holidays with a joyous afternoon of winter carols (sung by the Children’s Houses) followed by unique, hand-crafted gift making in the classrooms (organized by the room parents).  
We hope you will consider contributing to this special day. The room parents prepare a list of items that they need for the craft activities. You can click below to browse the list and see if there is anything that you are able to donate. Thank you!

Winter Sing & Solstice Schedule:

  • 1:00pm – Winter Sing in the Commons

The Children’s House children will take to the stage and grace us with a melodic chorus of winter carols followed by Children’s House early dismissal. See Early Dismissal Schedule below. Thank you!

  • 1:15-3:00pm – Make Unique, Hand-Crafted Gifts for the Holidays in the Classrooms

After the winter sing all parents are invited to accompany their children back to the classrooms for gift making. All of the classrooms (except for napping Huckleberry) are open to all, but we ask that you begin your creative afternoon in your child’s home classroom before making your way around to the rest.

Children who visit other classrooms MUST be accompanied by their parents or designated adult guardian. Thank you!

*Early Dismissal Schedule/ No Elementary Aftercare:

  • *1:00pm Children’s House Dismissal
  • 1:00-3:00pm Elementary Dismissal

All Elementary parents are welcome to join us for this joyous afternoon. Elementary students will be dismissed to parents in the classrooms, after the winter sing. Parents are then welcome to accompany their children around the various classrooms, beginning with their own, for gift making. Elementary children without adult accompaniment will remain in their classroom until their parents arrive or until 3:00pm dismissal, whichever comes first.

  • *3:00pm Toddler Dismissal

Due to the toddler’s nap schedule, the Huckleberry Cottage will not participate in the Sing and Solstice. There will be an early dismissal from the cottage at 3:00pm.

  • No Elementary Aftercare

Winter Solstice Wish Lists

The room parents of each classroom (excluding Huckleberry as they will be sleeping during the festivities) will plan a handful of gifts from the heart for you and your children to make together. They will put together lists of supplies as the date nears and ask that you please click above to browse the lists and find something that you are able to contribute. You can donate an item specifically for your child’s classroom and/or you may have items lying around that other classrooms need. Please feel free to contribute items from any of the classroom lists. Thank you!
