October 2019

Goodness gracious, time is flying by! We had a great time learning and reviewing shapes and colors in September. We are really learning a great deal about each other, too!
October is going to be another busy month, but hopefully cooler and filled with the colors of fall. Our theme is Farm Animals, Harvest Time and Halloween. We will be exploring the world of all creatures great and small, cute and cuddly, from the farm to the barnyard.
Our second Art Masterpiece is on Monday, October 7th at 10:30am. And we have another fun paint project scheduled for Monday, October 14th at 10:30am. Thank you to our parents that have volunteered and are helping make our projects happen. There are still plenty of projects with which to help. If you can’t help in our classroom during the mornings, but have the ability to prep some of our projects at home, let us know!
The preschool “Harvest Festival” is scheduled for Wednesday, October 30th, from 9:30-11:30am. If you can help us with our Harvest Festival Party, we would love for you to help! Please just make sure that there is a Volunteer form on file in the office. This is always a fun event and the children have a wonderful time. There will also be a sign-up sheet out on our cart soon, for any needed party donations.

And now for some final news: the library will be hosting their Scholastic book fair October 14th – 18th. At the end of the Book Fair, the PTO is hosting our annual Family Movie Night on Friday, Oct.18th. Pizza, snacks and drinks will be available (cash only, please). Most of the snacks and drinks sold at this event help our grades earn money for field trips, etc. Gates will open at approximately 5:30pm and the movie will start at sundown. While your children watch the movie, you are also invited to shop the Book Fair. Bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy a family night with dinner and a movie! All family and friends are welcome.
Thank you again for supporting our wonderful class! We are off to a great year and look forward to more amazing experiences with your children!
