October has been an eventful month! Our older children had an awesome time touring Hickory Nut Gap Farm, and all of our preschoolers enjoyed a visit from the Riceville Fire Department. The children are having lots of fun at music time each week with Ms. Lou Ann and Mr. Ken. In the classrooms, we have been learning about God’s beautiful creation of the fall season and working on many creative activities and crafts. We are looking forward to our classroom fall parties on Wednesday October 31. Your children may come dressed in their costumes.
If you haven’t viewed your child’s fall portraits, you will find them in their classroom. Payment for pictures is due by TuesdayNovember 6. The preschool will be closed in observance of Veteran’s Day on Monday November 12, as well as, Wednesday and Thursday November 21-22for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Scholastic Book orders are due by WednesdayNovember 13. This will be our last Scholastic order before Christmas and it is a great opportunity to order books for gifts! Please let me know if your book order includes gifts for your child. As always, you may order online or turn in your paper forms here at the preschool.
For our preschool outreach this year, we are participating in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program. Shoeboxes are available in the preschool entrance.Filled boxes need to be turned in no later than Thursday November 15. Extra boxes and brochures are available if needed.
I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are so blessed here at Grassy Branch with caring teachers, delightful children and wonderful preschool families. We have so much for which we are thankful!
