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


OCTOBER THEME: E-I-EI-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 begin our Halloween fun. We will also be working on our small motor skills.

PICTURE RETAKE DAY: Friday, October 26th

SPIRIT DAY: Every Friday is spirit day when we wear our Benchmark tee shirts.

HARVEST FESTIVAL: The preschool Harvest Festival is scheduled for Wednesday, October 31st. Your child can wear their Halloween costume that 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. Then 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 this month for helpers to make this a special day.

EARLY RELEASE: Thursday, October 25th and Friday, October 26th. School is over at 11:30 and we will not be having lunch, Nooncats, or Aftercare. You have the option of picking up your child early (11:15) or waiting and being in all the traffic.


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