Wow!! Another month has flown by! We learned our shapes and colors and had a great time at our Teddy Bear Picnic. Counting the Gummi Bears and sorting them was fun, but eating them was more fun.


OCTOBER THEME:   “E I E I O” headed to the farm we go.   This month our focus will be on our Barnyard Friends and Harvest Time. We will be exploring the world of all creatures, big and small, feathered and wooly, muddy and spotted who live on a farm. We will be learning their names, their baby’s names and their sounds. We will learn about how farmers plant their crops and then harvest them. Then we will tie it all into the most exciting part of the month, HALLOWEEN. We will also be working on our small motor skills including cutting with scissors. (We hope to spare all clothes and hair but it is a learning curve).


PICTURE DAY: Picture day is Wednesday October 4th .



SPIRIT DAY: Every Friday is spirit day when we wear our Benchmark tee shirts. The children love to wear their school shirts.



HARVEST FESTIVAL: The preschool Harvest Festival is scheduled for Monday, October 30th from 9:00 AM to 11:15 AM. Your child can wear their Halloween costume this day. For safety reasons, we ask that they don’t wear masks that cover their faces or bring accessory weapons (guns or swords) to school. We will start the morning with a parade at 9:15 so please be on time, dressed and ready to show off. Following the parade, we will visit the petting zoo, pumpkin patch, make special harvest crafts, and have tasty treats. We will have a sign up sheet out later in the month for helpers to make this a very special day.


EARLY DISMISSAL: Friday, October 27th is an early dismissal day. School is over at 11:30 AM and we will not be having Lunch, Nooncats, or Aftercare. You have the option of picking up your child early (11:15) or waiting until 11:30 and being in all the traffic.



Thank you for your support of our great class. We are pleased with how far your children have already come.
