This coming week (October 7 – 11) at Kidsplace we’ll be learning all about Fall and Thanksgiving! Even those falling leaves and cooler days can make us thankful when we see what joy the season brings to the small people living in our homes!

Please have your child collect some leaves to bring to class next week as we explore our “Fall” theme. The leaves will be used in crafts and at our sensory table.

For more about our upcoming themes, some great fundraising news, and information about Picture Day and our Halloween Parties, keep on reading …

smiley-1600-1200-wallpaperFirst, a HUGE thank you to everyone for participating in our Peak of the Market fundraiser! We sold 203 bags of veggies, and raised $1,360 in profits for Kidsplace! Well done! Don’t forget … pick up day is October 8, 5 – 6 p.m. at the school! If you can show up at 4 p.m. to help unload and sort the bags, that would be greatly appreciated! Please let a board member or your teacher know if you can help!

Let’s keep that momentum going as we head into our next fundraiser, Mom’s Pantry! More information will be coming home soon, but mark your calendars…orders are due October 25 with a projected delivery date of early to mid-December! (Perfect for Christmas treats!)

Get Ready to Say Cheese!

School pictures will be taken October 21 (M/W/F class) and October 22 (T/TH classes). More information about package options and purchasing will be sent home soon!

Party, Party!

Children are welcome to dress up in their costumes (no scary costumes or toy weapons such as knives, guns, swords, etc. please!) that day. There are sign-up sheets inside the classroom if you would like to bring treats or help out with the party.

Other Reminders

Please remember to close, and hook, the gate when exiting the Calvin playground. If the gate is left open, children can easily run onto the parking lot. Thank you!

There is no school on October 14, Thanksgiving Monday.

Scholastic Book orders are due October 15.

Our Annual General Meeting takes place November 13, 7:30 p.m. in the library at Calvin Christian School. Please mark your calendars to attend!
