Wow, where has September gone? It is hard to believe that it is October already.  If you cannot make your designated times of arrival please wait and arrive after 9:30, this will be the last arrival time for the day.  If you know you are going to be late please just let us know and we can accommodate it.  Our pick-up times are toddler 11:45 and preschool 12 p.m.  Each group will be down at the door a few minutes before dismissal time.   Also please remember to call the school if your child will not be attending.

Our First trip of the year was a success thank you to everyone that came out and joined us.

Your involvement is the key to the success of the school. The month of September was great and all the children have adapted very well.  I would like to thank everyone for all the patience this last month. 

We will be having our meet-the-teacher evening on Wednesday, October 18th at 6:15 pm.  Come on out to the school meet the teachers and see what your child has been up to so far.

This month we will be talking about Thanksgiving and what we are thankful for, fall and what happens in fall and will finish the month off with Halloween. We have many fun things planned for the children throughout the month. We will be having a Halloween Party for the children on Monday, October 30th and Tuesday, October 31st. We will be doing some spooky, fun Halloween crafts and will go trick-or-treating with our friends and teachers. We ask that you bring your child dressed in their costume on their day.

We are looking for some donations of some items for a craft corner.  If you have any empty paper towel rolls and water bottles that you would like to bring in we would be grateful to have them.  While you are out and about with your children we are also collecting sticks and leaves so if you see some and would like to bring them in that would be wonderful too.

 Just a reminder as cold season is on its way, please ensure your child is in good health when they attend school.   We encourage you to continue to use the school screening tool.

We still ask that if you haven’t done so already please bring in a picture of your child for our welcome board. 

Throughout the year when the weather is nice, we would like to take the children for walks around the area when we can or maybe even visit the library.  To do this we need all parents’ permission to leave the school property.  This would not be an everyday thing but maybe once in a while.  Please see the letter attached and sign and return it to the school.  

Please also see the calendar for other special days throughout the month and our snack menu.
