Dear Parents…

What a fun week we have in store in Younger Kids!  The week started off with a bang this morning as we welcomed a special reptile presentation in the Commons.  While we already have completed this unit of study, today’s visit was a great reminder of all the amazing reptiles we learned about a few weeks ago.

Thursday and Friday of this week also present some memorable and fun opportunities for our kids and we want to make sure you have all the info you need to help these days run smoothly.

On Halloween day please have your child wear her/his regular clothing to school in the morning.  Your child is welcome to bring a costume to school for our afternoon festivities. We will help the kiddos to change into these costumes before the parade which begins at 2:00.  Please leave any weapons associated with the costume at home as they are not allowed on the premises. Immediately following the parade will be the classroom parties. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help out with the parties or bring supplies.  It should be a wonderful time!

On Friday we will be celebrating the accomplishment of reaching all of our Fun Run fundraising goals!  Younger Kids raised over $13,000 which is amazing! Our students are welcome to wear pajamas to school and bring a small stuffed animal that can accompany them for the day.  We will be watching the original Mary Poppins movie with all of the Younger Kids. We also will be providing popcorn for the kids to enjoy during the film.  

Since the Younger Kids went above and beyond the fundraising goals we want to go above and beyond for them too!  As an added bonus, we will also provide a pizza lunch for our students to thank them for their incredible success!  If your child would rather have lunch from home that is AOK. If you wish to order a hot lunch for your child, you will still need to purchase a lunch ticket from the office.  Thank you to all of you who helped your child to raise money for the Fun Run! We appreciate it very much.

As a final note, we will be experiencing some colder than average temps this week and we wanted to remind you that we go out in almost all weather.  We appreciate you helping to make sure that your child has appropriate outside clothing for the weather! 

Have a super week…

Seth, Annie and Dylan
