010413_sccs-gingerbread-1The mothers of several St. Croix Catholic School students combined their creative spirits recently to construct playhouse-size gingerbread houses for the school’s two kindergarten classrooms.

The school invites parents in the community to see the playhouses and learn about SCCS kindergarten and Ark of Angels Montessori preschool programs during an open house at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 14 at the school located at 621 S. Third St. in Stillwater.

The evening starts in St. Michael’s Social Hall with a welcome message from SCCS Principal Sister Mary Juliana. Families are then invited to visit the Kindergarten and Preschool classrooms, meet the teachers and engage in a variety of hands-on activities, including the new interactive gingerbread houses.

Please RSVP to Diane Polley at 651-439-5581 or dpolley@stccs.com. In addition to a fun night of exploring and creating, prospective kindergartners and preschool students receive an “I’m Going to Kindergarten” or “I’m Going to Preschool” t-shirt.
