What's Going On In Class:

The children have been introduced to tape and staplers in the art area. In dress up we have added purses. In blocks we are still learning to build.

During family we have started to work on recognizing our names. We will start off with a picture of each child on their own name tag. As time goes by the picture will come off to make it more challenging.

During snack time we have tried new foods. We have tried pears and black beans. We will continue to practice scooping and pouring.

If you can donate pumpkins or know of someone who can donate pumpkins to our pumpkin patch please let me know.


Library Day is this Thursday!  We are starting library this week.  Your child will choose a book and bring it home in their library envelope. Please return by the following Thursday so that you child may choose a new book.  Happy Reading!


On October 30 we will have a mask parade for the children only during school. We will make mask in class and have a parade for the Backpacker class. Then we will watch the Backpackers parade. Afterwards we will have a special snack together with the Backpacker class. The parade is very quick and parents need not attend. I will post picture with the next newsletter.


Just a reminder that there are no costumes or candy per school policy. If your child would like to bring in a picture of themselves in their Halloween costume we will post them on the board.
