Our first month of school went very quickly! We are settling into school with seeing our friends again and making new friends. We had our first fire drill in September and will continue to have them each month. We also started our first "spirit day" in September with crazy hair day.
Mr. Chris, our music instructor comes to Alpine every other Wednesday. In September he came and played Country Music. Everyone loves when Mr. Chris comes and gets everyone singing and moving. Reminder if your child doesn't normally attend school on Wednesday mornings they are welcome to come for his class. Please just make arrangements with your teacher.
The Jefferson Librarian, Ms. Chris comes periodically to read to our Kindergarteners. She came on the 24th and read stories about being in Kindergarten and a silly story about rhyming words.
To celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday we made applesauce. The children enjoyed helping the teachers core the apples and mashing the cooked apples into apple sauce. They all agreed that the best part was when they got to eat their delicious applesauce!
Smart Board instruction has started. The 4 year olds have it 2x's a week to begin and the Kindergarteners have it everyday during their math lesson. The younger children have it periodically for lessons or fun activities.
