Dear Pre-K Families,
Welcome to October!!! We just started our new theme, My Family, My Community. We will be talking about families, and communities. This week will focus on family. We are talking about our own families as well as the Holy Family. Next week we will start a new show and tell calendar and the theme will be My Family. On the day designated for your child, please send in a picture of your family.
Our Alpha friend this week is Iggy Iguana Ii. We will be learning about St. Frances this week. His feast day is on October 4th. He is the patron saint of animals. Our school will celebrate the blessing of the animals mass on Friday morning at 11:00am outside in the front of the school. Unfortunately, preschool will not be able to attend because that is our lunch time. If you would like to attend, you will need to take your child on your own. You are welcome to attend the mass and bring in your pets to be blessed.
October is the month of the rosary, and we will be learning about the rosary. Our class usually does a giant chalk rosary in the back circle with our 5th grade reading buddies. I will send more information on this later.
October is also Fire safety month and we will have a visit from the Fire department on October 11th.
Please remember that if you have not already signed up for parent teacher conferences, please
sign up in the classroom. If the dates don't work for you, please let me know. I am also in need of a few ASQ questionnaires back. If you have not already turned it in, please remember to bring it in.
The School Halloween carnival will be on Saturday, October 28th. Preschool is in charge of the cake walk. Please sign up in the classroom to bake/donate cookies, cupcakes or a cake. Our class will also be donating a basket for the raffle. If you are able to donate $1.00 towards this, Mr. Van Hagen will put together a basket from our class. We will have a bag hanging on the wall to collect.
We had a lot of fun learning about apples. Please make sure that you were able to check out our apple orchard in the playhouse. It will be coming down in a few days.
