Hello Backpacker Families,
We have been having so much fun getting to know one another, playing, signing songs and learning our daily schedules and routine.Next week will be our first music class with Miss Tina and Wednesday our first “in class” chapel with Chaplain Angela. Even though most children know how to use school materials, we still reintroduce them as reminders.
I’ve introduce all centers and reminded that children that “Clean up is part of playing.” The children made their first entry in their journals. Please know that you are welcome to come in and read your child’s journal with them. They would really enjoy it.
All School Chapel, “Blessing of the Animals.” During our first All School Chapel you can bring your pet to be blessed by Pastor Linda. If you cannot bring your pet, bring a picture of it in a ziplock bag or your child can bring their favorite stuffed animal. All school Chapel is once a month. At 9:00, drive your child to the church stay with them during chapel until it’s over, usually about 10 minutes long. Once it’s over drive them to the Grange. Our first Chapel is Wednesday, 10/3/18 and we will meet once a month afterwards. I will be bringing Kingy, our pet California King Snake.
