A Note From Our Principal
Fall is in full swing and our students are are enjoying the extra outdoor time, nature walks and seasonal curriculum activities. We are planning an abundance of fun fall themed activities for our students this month and are excited to share photos with you all through Links 2 Home. My team and I are looking forward to an exciting October! This month is sure to be memorable for your children. As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Mini Pumpkin Donations
We would appreciate parents bringing in 1 or 2 mini pumpkins for our in class pumpkin painting and activities! Please donate mini pumpkins October 19th-21st. Our in class pumpkin decorating will take place on October 26th. Thank you in advance for your donations!
Fall Festival Parties
Our classrooms will be celebrating Halloween by doing crafts and having a classroom candy parade. Students can wear themed PJ’s (no costumes please). We know families and staff typically look forward to class parties because they allow us to be together as a school community and give parents an opportunity to get to know their child’s classmates and other parents. We are still not allowed to invite parents into our classrooms for celebrations and will be sharing extra photos with you all on Links To Home. Thank you for your positivity and flexibility!

Wanted to share a great practice we saw this morning in Ms. Aleecia’s Pre K 2 classroom. Walking through her classroom while her students were outside, we observed her room very organized with everything in it’s place, chairs pushed in, and her classroom feeling very warm and welcoming. We were also was very pleased to see her tables set up with the students drawing activity ready PRIOR to when her children went outside. This is good practice to follow when it comes to transition from one activity to another, such as when students go outside on the playground, and the students know what is planned when they come inside. We went back to her room shortly after and all students were fully engaged and ready to learn!
