OCTOBER NEWSLETTER
M-F 3’S HULL/BRITTNEY
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 the farm. We will be learning their names, their babies’ 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).
MOVIE DAY: Movie Day is Friday October 4th
PICTURE MAKE-UP DAY: Picture make-up day is October 18th
SPIRIT DAY: Every Friday is spirit day when we wear our Benchmark T-shirts. The children love to wear their shirts to school.
ART MASTERPIECE: We will be doing our Art Masterpiece for this month on Wednesday October 2nd at 10am. If you would like to come in and help, we would love to have you!
HARVEST FESTIVAL: The preschool Harvest Festival is scheduled for Wednesday, October 30th from 9:30am to 11:30am. 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.
HALLOWEEN: On Thursday the 31st your child can wear their Halloween costume. 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.
Early Dismissal: October 24th and 25th is early dismissal days. School is over at 11:30am. No Lunch, Nooncats, or Aftercare will be available on these days.
Thank you for your support of our great class!! We are pleased with how far your children have already come. As always, please email both of us regarding any questions you may have concerning your kiddo. bhull@benchmarkschool.net bpeck@benchmarkschool.net
