We hope you had a wonderful and joyous holiday season. Welcome back!
We hope you enjoyed your holidays! It’s wonderful to see all the children back in school. We thank all of you who have volunteered at The Robin’s Nest and especially during the busy holiday season. Parent participation is very important to the school and the children love it too!
The children enjoyed a very busy and exciting holiday season at The Robin’s Nest. December 3rd through the 7th our annual Santa Shop was opened serving over 400 shoppers! On the evening of December 6th more than 500 people attended the annual Christmas program presented by Mrs. Jenny Knott and The Robin’s Nest children. The program was priceless. December 8th was a festive morning featuring Breakfast with Santa for children and their families. On December 10th and 11th we hosted two very special Christmas Chapels for Robin’s Nest children and their families. Topping off the holiday season at the Robin’s Nest were classroom visits with Santa, a Christmas story time and of course the festive classroom Christmas parties. What an exciting and busy month!
A big thank you to Sarah Thompson, Brittany Proefke, Tina Savopoulos, Heather Dominie, and all of our volunteers for their help with shopping, organizing, wrapping, and staffing the Santa Shop. The Santa Shop would not be the success it is without you!

Our school takes the health of our students very seriously and takes many precautions to control the spread of illnesses and to protect the health of your child. There are additional measures you can take at home to protect your child’s health as well, including:
- follow the basic prevention measures of hand washing, cough and sneeze etiquette and regular cleaning of high touch surfaces
- monitor your child for signs and symptoms of illness
- keep your child home from school and other activities when ill
- keep children home until they no longer have symptoms of illness and are feeling well and able to fully participate in daily programs – children must be free of fever and vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school
