Dear Parents,

In the midst of the holidays, the season of giving is upon us. Parents are often stressed out trying to find the perfect toys for their children. Research, however, tells us that the most valuable gift you can give your child is to spend time with him or her. When the years pass, children do not necessarily remember the gifts they received, but instead the family get-togethers, the songs and traditions of the holidays, and the moments they spent with special people.

Helping others is often a significant and meaningful part of many people's celebrations. Volunteering and donating time, food, or money to personally worthy causes helps add meaning to the celebration. Very special thanks to all of you who donated food items for the children of "His House." We are motivated and inspired by your generosity. Since children learn by imitating, especially at a young age, what a valuable act to model for your children!

We received a great deal of positive feedback from those of you who attended the first Parent Workshop on "Getting Ready to Read," by Ms. Lisbeth Marcus from the University of Miami. We are happy to bring her back for the second part on Tuesday, December 6th. We encourage you to attend if you are available.

On Wednesday, December 14th, the children will have the opportunity to experience snow in our "Let it Snow" party and gift exchange. In keeping up with our goal of promoting literacy, we would appreciate it if you would bring a wrapped book for your child to exchange with one of his or her classmates.

Make sure to join our Holiday Celebration on Friday, December 16th at 10:00 a.m. You will witness dances by the Ballet and Music & Movement students as well as special performances from all of the children. Don't forget to bring your cameras!

If your child is a VPK student, please be reminded that classes end on December 16th and resume again on January 3rd, 2012. Our Winter Camp will be available for children of all ages from December 19th – 30th. There will be plenty of games, arts & crafts, cooking, outdoor sports, movies, and tons of fun.

Please make sure to check out our new website at Very soon you will get access to go in with a private password and check out many pictures of your child's daily events. More information will soon follow.

Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwaanza or any other holiday, we hope you enjoy it along with your child, and all of the special people in your life.

Happy Holidays from your extended family at Future Kids!!!
