Photos Tomorrow and Other October Happenings!

Just a quick reminder that the Blue Whales will have their pictures taken tomorrow morning, Wednesday, October 2nd. Don’t forget to bring your smiles to school!

We will begin the month of October by learning about different occupations and fire safety. Please let me know if you would like to come in sometime and talk to the students about your job. We would love to learn from the “experts”! We will also be discussing 9-1-1 and what to do in case of an emergency. On Thursday, October 10th, the Chapel Hill fire department will be visiting our school and bringing their fire truck! Be sure to ask your child about "don't hide, go outside", "fall and crawl" and "stop, drop and roll".  We had a fire drill last week where we practiced getting out of the building quickly and safely and going to our school "meeting place" (which is the tree across the parking lot). When you get the opportunity, please talk with your child about your family's outside "meeting place". 

Thank you for signing up for the fall parent/teacher "getting to know you" conferences on Monday, October 7th and Tuesday, October 8th.  I look forward to meeting with you in the library, while Ms. Missy and Ms. Jane keep things running smoothly in the classroom.

Now for a couple of thank you's and reminders:

  • Play dough for October was kindly provided by Isla’s family.

  • Thank you to Nicco’s family for providing snack this week and to Liam’s family for providing snack next week.

  • Thanks to Juliana’s family for providing library books on occupations and fire safety.

  • A huge thank you to Jessica, Leigh, and Joie for completing Triple P projects.

  • One of our skill ring tokens for October is knowing your phone number. Your child may need additional help from home with this one!

  • Chick-fil-a spirit night is Monday, October 14th from 5-7.

  • Rags to Riches will be performing “Owl and Turtle” on Wednesday, October 16th.

  • Preschool will be closed Thursday, October 17th for fall break.

Finally, we currently have a building activity at our “woodworking station” that involves styrofoam and golf tees. Your child is more than welcome to keep their “creations” at home for good, but if you and your child decide you are going to throw them away, please consider “recycling” the golf tees and/or styrofoam by bringing these items back to school for reuse. Thanks!
