Riverside Park & Annavale Nursery School’s ‘Sister’ Program
As part of our community outreach, we have teamed up with a local head start nursery school to make the season cheery for the 24 children of Annavale. We are collecting the following items:
•Children’s Crayons , markers
•Handsoap - pump, children’s bath bubbles or children’s shampoo
Kindly provide only the items listed (no toys please), unwrapped to RPNS by Friday, Dec.13. Place your donations in the box in the hallway near the Communication Table.
CANDY for the Gingerbread houses…we could use the following for our Gingerbread House decorating: smarties candies; small pretzels; or any other small holiday candies/chocolates (without nuts and peanut butter please).
The children will be decorating Gingerbread Houses on Dec. 19 and 20. The beautiful masterpieces will be brought to Thorncliffe Place, a retirement residence for residents to enjoy and in memory of Huguette Lacelle (my mom).

CHRISTMAS CONCERTS AND PARTIES
It has been the tradition here at RPNS for the children to sing some holiday songs for their families. The concerts this year will be held on Tuesday, Dec.17 and Wednesday, Dec. 18. All family members are welcome to share in the festivities. Should you be bringing along a child not currently registered at RPNS, kindly let the Director, Paulette, know so she can help Santa’s elves with their lists. All this singing will make us hungry so please sign up on the FOOD LIST posted in the hall and bring in some goodies! NOTE: Before Care will not be available on Dec. 17 & 18 and we will not be playing outdoors those days.
Paulette Young, Director of RPNS
