“It’s snowing leaves!” I heard the comment today when the beautiful golden leaves were showering down around the kids and us. A perfect fall day, and just the type of weather to inspire some genuine feelings of thankfulness!
This week (October 1-5) our theme will be Thanksgiving. Our classes will be looking at what Thanksgiving means and the traditions that we have. And as part of our fall activities, please start collecting some of those gorgeous leaves…a fall craft will be coming up in a couple of weeks!
Don’t forget…the school will be closed for Thanksgiving Monday, October 8.
All parents should have signed up for mini-jobs by now, but if you haven’t, please check with Ms. Lori or Ms. Sherry to see what’s still needed. Some of the jobs include laundry, making playdoh and helping clean toys. Kidsplace is a co-op, and as such parents are needed to help fill these vital roles. If we don’t get enough volunteers, teachers will need to assign the jobs. (Really, it’s more fun to pick your own! :))
With the cooler weather upon us, please make sure that hats, gloves, etc. are labeled with your child’s name and placed in their jackets or bags. This will make going outside much easier.
Our Peak of the Market fundraiser starts this week! Keep an eye out for information being handed out on Monday and Tuesday. Volunteers will be needed to help sort the vegetables when they arrive. More information coming soon!
