Food Group Week
October 3 – November 3. Good food makes healthy bodies! This is an opportunity to teach the children that healthy foods can be special. Please plan to participate by signing up and sending a treat from the designated food group at least once during the week. Please … no cookies, cake, or candy.
Special Fall Activity Days
We are going on a picnic! On Friday October 13 the Alton and East Alton centers will be going to Marquette Park for a picnic, hike, and visit the visitor’s center. The Granite City center will be holding their annual campout day.
Not all of our children come every day so rather than a traditional Halloween party, we will have special but appropriate and productive holiday-related activities spread throughout the week. Some of the special activities will include, face painting, Halloween learning games, carving a pumpkin, Halloween songs, cooking with pumpkins, and designing our own costumes. We would appreciate the donation of any old hats, purses or “dress-up” type clothes for our activities.
