The children are really excited about the Parent and Child Activity that will be held on Thursday, October 29th. Children are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character from a book/comic/magazine. We are asking that children NOT wear masks. Some children are afraid of masks and we want all children to enjoy themselves and feel safe. We will be completing our pumpkin study this week. We will be moving onto exploring the beautiful fall leaves.
We will go on several walks exploring the leaves and fall changes that are occurring in the neighborhood. Please dress your child with warm clothes and/or the ability to layer their clothes. It will most likely be a bit brisk in the next few weeks and we will be spending extended time outdoors exploring and observing on our campus (children will not be running and playing on the playground equipment at this time, thus they may need warmer clothing).
We will also need new play dough in November. Please sign up if you would like to make a batch for us.
The November calendar for volunteers is posted and we want to thank Jenny (Jackson’s mom) for helping us out in the classroom. Please sign up to volunteer if you would like to spend time in our classroom or help out with “housekeeping” duties as well.
We want to thank all of the parents who will be volunteering on our field trip to Eden’s Place Nature Center. If you have signed up to volunteer there will be a field trip chaperone expectation sheet in your child’s mailbox. Please take a minute to read over it, so that we can ensure that the field trip is safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Please remember to join the Ray PTA if you have not already done so.
If you would like to join us on the field trip please let me know ASAP. We are only allowed a certain number of volunteers. Please be sure to turn in the forms and payment by Monday, October 26th.
Please see archived September 2015 posts for information about the Lottery for Kindergarten.
