What's Going On In Class:

Over the past two weeks the children have been introduced to markers, color crayons, rainbow color crayons, water colors, wood blocks, necklaces in dress up, and both sides of the playground. We will continue to introduce new items in all the areas at school.

Starting October 1 we will begin our day outside. Please make sure you bring your child outside if there is not a teacher inside to greet them. Remember to bring a jacket for the cooler mornings.

All school chapel this month is the blessing of the animals. You can bring your pet, a picture of your pet or a stuffed animal to be blessed by Pastor Linda in the church.

The children have shown an interest in cooking. I am going to plan a cooking lesson once a month on the last Friday. I will put out a sign up sheet on the sign in table to bring in ingredients for the cooking lesson each month. I enjoy cooking and am thrilled to share it with this class. This month we will be making apple sauce! I've got everything covered as we have an apple tree in our back yard.

Field Trip coming up:

Monday 8th at 9:30 we are going on a Field Trip to The Farm off Hwy 68. You can meet us there or we will have a sign-up for carpool drivers to take us and bring us back to school. If you are driving other children besides your own, we will need a copy of your driver’s license and current car insurance.  On the field trip Mr. Bunn will discuss vegetables and fruits with the children then we will take a hay ride out to the field so each child can choose a pumpkin.  The cost for the field trip is $8.00 per child.
