Octorber 2017 Newsletter
Fall is in the air. With the weather getting colder we ask that you send your child to school with a light jacket and be sure to label it with their name. Our themes this month include hot air balloons, pumpkins, harvest, fire safety, numbers, and Halloween.
Our center-wide activity will be our annual costume parade. The children will parade around the church facility and receive goodies from the church staff. We ask that children do not wear any scary costumes. Families are encourage to stick around for this event. Don’t forget your cameras! Parade starts promptly at 10:00 a.m. Treat donations are accepted. Please drop them off at the preschool office by Friday, October 27th. Keep in mind we are a nut-free program.
Fall conferences will take place on Thursday, October 12th. Your child’s teacher will have a conference sign-up sheet posted and available for you to choose a time slot. Teachers schedule family conference twice a year to set goals and discuss your child’s progress and assessments. Childcare will not be available.
