A Note From Our Principal
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and classroom celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween PJs and fall attire is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions! This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with others. We have many special activities planned for our students and are looking forward to sharing photos with you all on Links 2 Home. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to you all, our families, for entrusting us with your children each day! As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
World Kindness Day
November 12th is World Kindness Day. Your child will be painting kindness rocks at school that will be sent home on the 12th. We are asking that all families take these rocks out into the community and place them to be found by strangers who can use a little kindness! Please share some photos of your child placing their rock. More details will be sent through Links2Hoome.
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a feast on Wednesday, November 24. Each child will also make a Thanksgiving placemat that you will be able to cherish forever. Parents are unable to attend this in-person celebration, so we will be sure to send photos through Links2Home for you to enjoy!
Holiday Giving Project
Carrington Academy will be sponsoring 8 children’s holiday wishes through K.A.R.E (Kids Are Really Equal), which is a non-profit organization that helps children throughout the year. Towards the end of November, you will be able to find the wishes on stars in the lobby tree. More information is available at the front desk if you are interested in helping us grant wishes this holiday season!

Spotlight on Toddlers
Our Toddler students read the story, “The Biggest Pumpkin Surprise Ever.” They worked on building their vocabulary by reviewing “orange” and “pumpkin” in Spanish while creating a pumpkin collage. They also practiced holding a writing utensil correctly as they colored using whole arm movement!
