Dear Parents,

We are asking for your family prayers for our loved preschooler Mason who is in the hospital. I believe that when you pray together as a family miracles begin to happen.

A good idea on how to pray as a family is going for a walk in nature. This walk together by itself is a form of prayer. As you are looking and appreciating the beautiful leaves and signs of fall tell your loved ones to ask God to be with those in need and to bring that beauty into their lives.

GOOD NEWS! Preschool will move to our new, permanent space in November. It is anticipated that our first day of class in the new permanent space will be Monday, November 26th. More information will follow.

I also need to thank you for helping my family with the “Meal Train”. My Family have had the most amazing dinners all thanks to you! May God bless you for this!

Language Arts:

This week we will learn the letter “Ff” and create Francis Fox.

I also want to strongly recommend that you give scissor activities to your child, and also many fun pencil activities such as mazes, dot to dot, and tracing. All this will help with handwriting skills when learning to write their name.

Cultural Studies:

Your preschooler may come wearing their Halloween costume on Wednesday, October 31st. On this day we will have many fun activities to celebrate Halloween!

Math:

We will begin our number book 1-5

Religion: “Jesus Family”

We will learn about Mary, Joseph and how they lived their lives. For this activity please bring a picture of your family.

Cosmic Studies:

We will finally carve our classroom pumpkin!

Dear Parents,

We are so proud of how quickly our preschool students are learning their school routines, cleaning up after themselves, using indoor voices, and sharing all class materials!

As we are learning our routines we are going to introduce a very fun activity called “Show and Tell”. During this activity your child will be able to develop speaking skills and their self esteem! We will be doing this activity during calendar time on Wednesdays in a structured way where everyone will have a turn to bring a toy or special object from home.
