Our Silly Christmas Break Song and a Message

Christmas Break 

(to the tune of Jingle Bells)

Dashing to the program
Singing all the day
to Carousel Skate we go
Laughing all the way
80’s wear will bring
cookies left and right
What fun it is to dance and jam
The games will be a sight!

Christmas break, Christmas break,
Giggle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to try
new things every day!
Christmas break, Christmas break,
Crafting all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to play
and get messy in every way.

Christmas break, Christmas break,
Movie, Jammie Day.
Oh! what fun it is to bowl
and dress the 60’s way!
Christmas break, Christmas break,
Fun all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to play
at LSS all Christmas break!

With Christmas break just around the corner, After-School Program staff are working hard to be sure the K-5th grade students are in for some serious fun! They have field trips planned, activities scheduled, dress-up days to look forward to and much more! However, the After-School program is not the only crew enjoying some Christmas adventures. The preschool and 2 year old classes have their big program tonight. I’ve been watching them practice and the cuteness is nearly unbearable! The younger kids have also been busy making adorable art projects and enjoying Christmas songs.

For me there is something magical about watching Christmas through the eyes of a child (or in my case the eyes of hundreds of children!) It is one of the many great blessings of my job. Sometimes I can’t believe I get paid to do this! Christmas is a time I find myself so thankful to God for the many blessings of this life and to my family for being amazing. So, for the parents who choose LSS Childcare and Education for your children, thank you. For the Childcare and Education educators that love and teach kids so well, thank you. For the rest of the LSS team that make each day a reality (from Executive Leadership to accounting, HR to IT and everyone else), thank you. For the generous donors that make the work of LSS a possibility, thank you. Of course, my biggest hug goes to the kids that make me laugh, cry, smile, shake my head and all but burst with joy. Thank you little ones (yes, super cool 5th grade boys- that includes you too!) Merry Christmas! -Heather
