If you would like to talk to your child’s teacher but your schedules do not match, feel free to call and talk with her at nap-time (12:00 – 2:00). Please identify yourself as a parent when you call.
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.
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.0 –
At the Library
The Witch has an Itch by Donna Guthrie illustrated by Katy Keck Arnsteen mixes a child’s fascination with spooky creatures with their delight for repetitive phrases. Gromelda was a wicked witch and proud of it but when she becomes allergic to evil magic….”The Witch has an itch! Oh, where does the witch have an itch?” In the end, her only choice is to change her reputation – starting from scratch.
