Classroom Happenings

         Welcome to October! Our Open House is this Thursday October 6th. We do hope you and your family will be able to attend. We will be here from 5:30-7:30 P.M.  We have finished our shape unit which was fun and very informative! We’ve made a bulletin board with all our observations, art work and dance moves!  We have moved onto positional words and print concepts which includes recognizing our names and learning the ABC’s!  We are also talking about how we are different (the color of our skin, hair, eyes) and how we are the same.  We will be using our observation skills to start looking at the changes around.



Please remember to send blankets in for your child to rest with.  Please be sure your child is wearing appropriate shoes and has extra clothes in school in case we get messy. Picture Day is Oct 17th. Please remember we will still be playing outside, so no clothes that can’t get dirty!  **NO COSTUMES IN SCHOOL***


Home School Connection

Thank you to all that have already sent in their family pages. If anyone needs another set, please let us know, call or leave a note in their communication folder and we will be happy to send them home.  We will be putting together a nature collage, please keep your eye out for an opportunity to collect some nature with your child!  Remember to check communication folders regularly.

Please see calendar in newsletter link for important dates!
