The children did a fantastic job at the Christmas Sing. It was wonderful to see so many of you there with family and friends supporting the children. We are very proud of all the children here at Chapel on the Hill.

  A BIG THANK YOU to all the cookie bakers – we had lots of delicious and beautiful cookies for our Christmas party and visit with Santa.  You all helped make it a special day for the children, thanks again.

Our first BOOK FAIR was a huge success, we exceeded our expectations and earned $900 to go towards books for our library.  THANK YOU TO ALL who volunteered at the book fair, to all those who donated books to the teachers and the school and to those of you who shopped at the fair.  Nursery school board member PATTY COOK, organized and ran the fair.  She made this possibility a reality.  THANK YOU PATTY!
