October Newsletter

A Note From Our Principal

We are starting to feel some cooler temps as we welcome in Fall!  Our students are enjoying the extra outdoor time, nature walks and seasonal curriculum activities. We are planning fun fall themed activities for our students and are excited to share photos with you all through Links 2 Home. As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Storybook Pumpkins

We are excited to invite all families to participate in creating a Storybook Pumpkin.  Get your creative juices flowing and start thinking of what book you would like to use as inspiration for your Storybook Pumpkin.  Students and teachers are hard at work coming up with ideas to decorate their classroom pumpkins. The pumpkins will be on display around the circular drive during the last week of October.


Halloween Parties  

Our classrooms will be celebrating Halloween by doing crafts and playing games with their classmates.  We know that families and staff typically look forward to class parties because they allow us to be together as a school community and give parents an opportunity to get to know their child’s classmates and parents. We are still not allowed to invite parents into our classrooms for celebrations and will be sharing extra photos with you all on Links 2 Home. Thank you for your positivity and flexibility!

Fun Fall Scavenger Hunt

Fall is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your family. From colorful leaves to seasonal decor, there is so much to see and explore.

Our fall scavenger hunt  is a free printable that you can download and print at home. We’ve included pictures and words, so students of all ages can participate. Scavenger hunts are the perfect excuse to get outside and help children observe and identify what is happening in nature all around them. See how many items your child can find!
