October 2017

Goodness gracious, time is flying by! We had a great time in September working with fairy tales. Some were old, some were new, and some were re-told in the kids’ own words.

October is going to be another busy month, but hopefully cooler and filled with the colors of fall. Our theme is Farm Animals and Harvest Time. We will be exploring the world of all creatures great and small, cute and cuddly, from the farm to the barnyard. Our shape for the month is the rectangle and we will be focusing on the fall colors yellow and orange. To complete two fun crafts, we are asking that each child bring in one 5.9 ounce box of instant chocolate or vanilla pudding. (This is the bigger one). It is most important that we have the correct size box so that we can complete our craft. We need these no later than Friday, October 13th so feel free to send them in right away.

Our second Art Masterpiece is on Thursday, October 12th at 9:30am. Thank you to our parents that have signed up and are making this all happen. There is still time to sign up so if you would like to help out please let us know.

The preschool "Harvest Festival" is scheduled for Friday, October 30th, from 9:15-11:30. If your child would like to wear their Halloween costume, please send them in it or just put it over their regular clothes. For safety reasons we ask that they don’t wear masks that cover their face or bring accessory weapons (i.e. guns or swords) to school. We will start the morning with a parade promptly at 9:15 so please be on time, dressed and ready to show off. Following the parade we will visit the pumpkin patch and petting zoo (paid for by your PTO ~ please remember to support them by becoming a member!), have a tasty treat in our classroom party, and make special harvest crafts. If you signed up to help with the Harvest Festival we will be getting in touch with you soon. This is always a fun event and the children have a wonderful time.

And now for some final news; the library will be hosting a Scholastic book fair October 9th-13th with an ice cream social on Tuesday the 10th starting at 3pm. Also, the PTO Family Movie Night is Friday, Oct.13th. Pizza, snacks and drinks will be available. Gates will open at 5:30pm and the movie will start at sundown. Bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy a family night with dinner and a movie! All are welcome.

Thank you again for your support of our wonderful class! We are off to a great year and look forward to more amazing experiences with your children!
