We had a very busy month in October celebrating Columbus Day, Winnie the Pooh's birthday and the Statue of Liberty's 125th anniversary. We finished off the month (in spite of all of the weather issues) with a GREAT Halloween parade and Boo or Treat. A great big "Thank You" to all of the parents that came out and participated in this great day.
This month we also started our Jamming for Juniors music program with Mr. Chris. In October our children learned about Reggae music and Bob Marley. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Again if your child does not attend school on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 when Mr. Chris is with us please see your teacher for a sign up sheet and bring them in to enjoy the music.
Construction began on our school with the removal of the deck and underground oil tank. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we go through this process.
A big THANK YOU to everyone that participated in the Kids Stuff fundraiser. It was a GREAT success and we have already put the money to good use with purchasing new toys/games to be used during indoor recess and day care as well as ordering MANY new Montessori teaching materials that wil be appearing in your children's classrooms very soon! Look for these and other new things outdoors once the construction is completed.
