Now that fall is officially here there will be lots of great things to talk about. The children have been taking notice of all the changes happening as we transition into fall: temperature and weather, leaves changing and falling off trees, squirrels gathering walnuts, and the need to wear warmer clothes. Please be sure your child’s cubbie is stocked with extra clothes appropriate to the weather and that they come prepared to play outdoors with a jacket or whatever they need to be comfortable outdoors.
Traditionally fall is the time of harvest as families would harvest fall crops and store them for the long winter ahead. Apples, pumpkins and squash are just a few things that are plentiful this time of year. The children will have opportunities this month to compare these different fruits and vegetables, cook with them and taste them. Pumpkin pie, applesauce, and baked squash are just a few things we will be making as a class. On Friday October 16th we will be having a scheduled “Show and Share” day. We would like the children to bring in something that reminds them of fall. Be creative, what do you think of when you think of fall? This is a great opportunity to have a discussion with your child about what fall means to you.
As in the past we have been invited to bring the children Trick or Treating to the Sunnen Business Park on Friday October 30th. We would love to have some parents accompany us. Let us know if you would like to join the group. We will be leaving school by 9:30 and returning by 11:30.
Parents can now access ordering online or return orders to school with a check, made payable to Scholastic. Orders will still be delivered to school. All online orders earn the class a free book. All orders are due by Wednesday, 10/07.
REMINDERS FOR PARENTS
- With children walking to cars in the parking lot they sometimes have been known to stray from the sight of their supervising adult. Please observe caution when driving into the parking lot by taking it slow and watching out for our precious young ones!!
- Tuition is due on Friday for the following week. Late fees will be accessed if not paid by closing on Tuesday.
- Please remember that the health policies outlined in your parent handbook are also State Licensing Guidelines meant to help insure the health and safety of all the children and staff. With all the press about the upcoming flu season please be extra observant of your child’s wellness or lack thereof and keep them home if there is any possibility that they are contagious. This will help to safe guard the children and keep the staff healthy so they do not miss time due to illness.
