We are winding down our “All About Me” Topic of Study with a few more family focused activities. Please remember to assist your child in completing the family portrait homework sheet. We will begin our study of Apples/Gourds/Pumpkins. We are collecting unique and cool looking gourds. Please feel free in adding to our collection. We will conclude our study with a trip to Eden’s Nature Center on Monday, October 31st. We will need 6 parent chaperones for each classroom. I have attached the field trip chaperone expectation sheet at the bottom of the blog. Please look it over so that you are aware of the expectations. Please keep an eye out for the detailed field trip form in your child’s mailbox.
We will be ready for volunteers to start in the classroom mid-October to late October. Please sign up on the volunteer sheet if you would like to volunteer. Please look over the volunteer options below and indicate on the sign- up sheet which volunteer role you would like to do. Please be sure that your volunteer paper work has been turned into the main office before you sign up to volunteer.
FIELD TRIP VOLUNTEERS
Parent participation is essential in ensuring that our preschool children have appropriate field trip experiences. We highly appreciate parents who are able to assist us on our outings! We want to thank all of the parents who will be assisting us on our trips in advance!
On field trips we ask that parents supervise their child along with a small group of other children. We ask that you follow all safety rules and abide by the set schedule especially for meal and departure times. We ask that you assist in buckling all students into and out of their seat belts. We ask that you buddy up with another adult to take children to the bathroom (if needed). We also ask that parents do not take part in any extra activities that are not included in the pre-planned field trip (i.e. going to any show/exhibit/performance that is an extra cost, or purchase treats or toys at souvenir shops). We have children with food allergies and it could be potentially dangerous to partake in treats/food made with unknown ingredients.

Volunteer Description Sheet for Classroom
We will be ready to have parents come into the classroom and volunteer beginning mid to late October. I will have a sign-up sheet available mid-October for you to sign up for a day and time that you would like to volunteer. We need volunteers to work with small groups of children, reading to children, and we can always use help with some of our house keeping duties. Please sign up for activities that you feel comfortable participating in. Please write R- behind your name if you would like to read to children, A- for doing activities with the children, or H- for housekeeping duties, C- for creating crafty things for the classroom, T- for technology assistance. I will give you details instructions so that you feel comfortable working with the children or completing the housekeeping duties. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Please let me know if you would like to volunteer on an ongoing basis.
