Dear Pre-K Families,
Thank you to all that made appointments for parent/teacher conferences. I really enjoyed sitting down with you. This week we will be doing some fun things for Halloween. We are doing some math and counting with '5 Little Pumpkins.' The children have been using the easel to paint pumpkins to add to our pumpkin patch. We will be going on a visit with our 6th grade science buddies to our school pumpkin patch to see how our pumpkins have grown and hopefully pick them. We will be doing some science and use our 5 senses to investigate as we turn our class pumpkin into a jack-o'-lantern. We will also combine religion with our pumpkin carving activity as we read The Pumpkin Gospel by Mary Manz Simon. This book will be on display in our classroom if you are interested in seeing it. On Wednesday, Oct 31st, we will have a special 'Pumpkin Patch' activity and treat. Please remember if your child attends school on Wednesday, the preschool children DO NOT wear Halloween costumes to school.
On Thursday, if you child attends school, we will be attending school Mass at 8:15am in the Auditorium. We will be celebrating All Saints day. Our 8th graders will dress up like saints. Please have your child at school before 8am so they can use the restroom and be ready to walk down. Please have them wear their OLM t-shirt.
The weather is getting a little colder, if your child brings a jacket or sweatshirt to school, please make sure that their name is in it. We have some jackets that have been found without names inside.
Looking ahead to next week, the entire school will close promptly at 12:30 on Thursday November 8th. There will not be school on Friday November 9th or Monday November 12th.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
