Dear Pre-K families,
We are beginning our 3rd week of Theme 3, My Community-Things That Move. We will be working on letter Hh. This week we will be working on learning about transportation. We will continue to work on counting syllables. We will also continue to learn about praying the Rosary. Thank you to those families that have received the Rosary bag and prayed at home as a family. We will continue to send the Rosary bag home until each family has had a chance. October is the month of the Rosary and we wanted to send home this opportunity for your family to be able to pray together. We have made rosaries in the classroom and the children are excited to learn about it. On Monday. I will make a chalk rosary around the back circle. Our class will color it in with our 5th grade reading buddies. This is a tradition that has been going on for the past 10 years. Several years after that, the entire school joined in and now prays around the Rosary together. The school will pray the rosary on Tuesday, October 16th.
October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On Monday, October 15th, our school will show our support by wearing pink. The Older kids will donate $1 to wear free dress and the proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Tuesday, October 16th will be picture re-takes. If you child would like to have re-takes, please return the entire picture package. If you child was not here on picture day, they will take it on Tuesday.
The week of October 22nd will be parent teacher conferences in the afternoon. Thank you to those that have signed up. If you need a different time, please contact me.
That week will also be our school library's Scholastic Book Fair. The book fair goes on for the entire week. Please visit and purchase to support our school library.
On Wednesday, October 24th, we will celebrate the October Birthdays in our class. A sign up sheet will be posted for those that have October birthdays and would like to bring something. We now have 25 students in our class.
Saturday, October 27th will be our school Halloween Carnival. The proceeds from the carnival go directly to our classrooms. This is a fun and safe evening for families and friends. Wristbands are available for purchase and the 8th grade families will be hosting food available to purchase in the auditorium. Preschool will be putting on the cake walk. There are sign ups in the classroom for parents that would like to work our booth and/or bake baked goods. Our Room Parents are collecting a fall item to donate a fall basket for the raffle. Please contribute by purchasing a fall item to add to the basket.
On Wednesday, October 31st, we will have a Pumpkin Patch Party in our class. There is a sign up for a special treat posted in the classroom. If you would like to send in a small treat for your child to share with their friends, you may bring it in also. We will be making treat bags. We have 25 students in our class. Please let us know it is for the class because they are also collecting 2 bags of candy for the carnival.
