After School Play October 8 - 19

After School Newsletter


Dear After School Families:

Happy beginning of Fall!  We have been busy working on our Falling Leaves for our Fall tree art board.  The children had a lot of fun making the leaves as they started to see their leaves appear on the tree.  Another thing the children have been busy practicing is writing their names.  Outside in the art area I added their name tags with dry erase markers to help them trace their names.  The children love doing this and so I added some shapes to practice tracing.  There are also some blank name tags so they can practice writing numbers or letters of their choice.  It has been great watching them be creative with this. 

Our October Focus:

For the month of October, we will be focusing on pumpkins and slowly start diving into our spooky art activities.  For science we will be making our bubbly potions and see what happens when a white flower is being put in a cup of colored water.  We will also do some pumpkin art and mummy wrapping.   We will also be continuing our jobs in the class, where we will have our line leader, caboose, children counter, and backpack helper.  The children have been taking their jobs seriously and love stepping into help when a child is there to do their job.

Kona Ice:

Goodshepherd Preschool strives to promote healthy food with the children.  Please understand that we will not be stopping for Kona Ice on Wednesdays.  Thank you for your understanding.

Lunch & Snack:

Please send the children with enough food for a lunch at the grange and a snack at 3:00pm.  We do have a microwave to warm up any food that they may need to be warmed up.  Thank you for sending healthy lunches with the children.

Take Home Art:

Please take home their art that is placed above their name in the cubbies.  The children work hard on their art and they look forward to taking it home. 

No Show Email or Text: 

We do care if we do not see your child during their normal pick up.  Emailing or texting will give us a good reference to keep track during pick up.  My email is and cell is 831-915-3324.
