We are recovering from a very busy week last week with all of our events and activities during our Pumpkins Week and then capped off on Saturday with the Fall Festival and G.L.O.W. Night. We had a great day on Saturday; the weather was perfect for a festival. I want to thank everyone who participated on Saturday or helped us out this past week. All events were a success. Times like these bring us all together as a family.
All of the Raffle Basket winners from our Fall Festival have been contacted. The list of winners will be posted outside the Office.
The teachers and children did such a great job with the pumpkin carving last week! The pumpkins will still be at school on Monday but the children should be bringing them home early this week; some of the pumpkins have deteriorated and may not make it home. Check out our website soon for the pictures from Saturday's events.
Our theme this week is Fall Leaves and the weather is getting cooler. Hopefully, the teachers will be able to take the children on a nature walk to collect leaves. Also, the classes will be doing various leaf-related activities.
Our chapel lesson for this week is from the book "The Fantastic Gifts of Fall" by Dandi Mackall. The book features infectious rhyming prose paired with scriptural passages which give gratitude and glory to God as early learners discover the wonderment created in Fall. Our scriptural passage is from Psalm 104:19, "He made the Moon to mark the seasons, the Sun knows its time for setting."
LOA events for October:
- Parents Night Out will be on Saturday, October 25th.
- We will have Black Day on Thursday, October 30th
- On Friday the 31st we will have our Fall Costume Parades and Parties; schedules for the parades and parties will be communicated soon. We look forward seeing all the children dressed in their costumes. Please remember, no scary costumes, witches or ghosts.
Get well wishes to Chris Hemingway-Turner, Hadley's dad (Toucans class), who is recovering from open heart surgery. Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.
