Please remember to pay the morning teachers when you are buying lunch for your child. If you are pre-paying, please put the amount you paid, and when you paid on the message board. It is difficult for us to keep tract of all the students buying lunch. I ask that YOU please keep tract of how many lunches you have paid for, and when you have paid. Please put your child's name on the list only if you have paid. Thank you

 

 

 

Caterpillars :

Our little ones have been learning about the Super Heroes in the Bible; David, Daniel, Esther & Moses. They have been doing many Fall crafts looking at colors, shapes & sizes.They have taken walks exploring spiders and spider webs. In Nov. they will learn about the first Thanksgiving, and what it was like for the Pilgrims and Native Americans.


Butterflies:

 

This class has been very busy the past month exploring changes in the Fall; you can see by their bulletin boards they have been busy. The class enjoyed having "Hootie owl" visit and learn about different characteristics about the owl, especially their talons (the students picked up marbles with their toes to understand how the owl uses its talons.) You may have noticed the wonderful spider web on the ceiling as part of their spider exploration. This class plays fun counting games as part of their daily curriculum. This class will also be learning about patience and how the Pilgrims had to have patience on their long journey.

 

    Bumblebees The character words for all the classes this month was choice and responsibility. Each Bible story illustrated the choice people took, and the responsibility that came with it.  The PreK class in preparing for pre-reading :have started journals where they find words, they must copy the word in their journal, and then draw the picture that defines that word. They are also learning that everything has a name/a word for it. With this activity comes beginning sounds which coordinate with letters.  Small motor skills are being obtained as the class uses play doh in various activities.  November will be about being thankful we can worship God, and learning about the Mayflower, Pilgrims, Native Americans, Friendship, and Patience.

    Dear Parents,

     

                        What is school climate? It is often defined as the sense of community and relationships among students and staff. We have a strong sense of community between our teachers and your children, but I would like to think that community extends beyond the walls of the school and touches on the relationships between schools and families. When you have a positive school climate, the students and adults all believe in the mission and vision of the school and take responsibility for ensuring the school is a physically and emotionally safe place for teaching and learning. I want to thank those who were able to hear Opal Singleton speak last Thursday evening. The topic was hard to hear at times, but it's never too early to learn about what is happening in todays society for the safety and well being for our children.  Your support to these parent meetings means a lot. I am proud of the character building the teachers implement in their daily curriculum. The character words we emphasize are important parts of character that we would want our students to have to make good choices and resolve conflict in healthy ways.  I encourage YOU, the parent, to use the character words in your conversations with your child. You may be very surprised at how readily young children understand these words. Here again are the character words (fruit of the spirit) the preschool uses in their worships every day, every month:

     

    • Goodness
    • Love
    • Responsibility
    • Patience
    • Peace
    • Gentleness
    • Kindness (sharing & caring)
    • Joy
    • Self- Control
    • Faithfulness
    • Courage
    • Honesty/Truth

    Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
