October 2018



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. Also, please check our calendar. We are beginning our “Me Bag” on Fridays this month and cannot wait to get to know your kiddos better.


Our second Art Masterpiece is on Friday, October 12th at 11am. Thank you to our parents that have volunteered and are making this all happen. There is still time to help, please let us know if you can.


                The preschool “Harvest Festival” is scheduled for Wednesday, October 31st, from 9:15-noon. 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 -- please be on time, dressed and ready to show off. 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 a Scholastic book fair October 8th-12th. At the end of the Book Fair, the PTO is hosting our annual Family Movie Night on Friday, Oct.12th. 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 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.


There are also some other opportunities to volunteer in our classroom. Please let us know if you are available and want to help. 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!
