Each January the Villa preschool students and their buddies create beautiful Valentines. These decorated hearts are then assembled to make a Valentine Garland. The Valentine Garland is presented to Children’s Hospital and is prominently hung for all to enjoy.
The students learn about the hospital and its special patients so they can better understand how these valentines cheer up the sick children during their hospital stay and the hardworking hospital staff.
Thank you for being
such a wonderful
Happy Valentine’s Day
From the Preschool

This event is for parents with children of all ages.
In our main foyer each year, we display a lovely Christmas tree. Beautiful ornaments, donated by our Kindergarten students and their families, adorn this tree. In the spirit of Christmas tradition, once again we have invited our Kindergarten students to choose or make a small ornament for our Villa tree.
Students may begin to bring their ornaments on Wednesday, December 5. If you would like to hang your ornament with Mr. Milroy, be sure to drop in between 8:15 and 8:30am on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Many families choose the ornament together, picking something that is symbolic or special to their child, and hang it on the tree together. Every ornament has the child’s name on the back, so when the class reaches 8th Grade, the students can find their ornaments on the tree and remember when they were in Kindergarten.
The Villa Christmas tree stays up until the Feast of the Epiphany and our return to school. Next time you are in the building, please stop and enjoy this very special Villa Tradition that began nine years ago!
