October is here! We begin a new theme, studying the seasons and fall in particular. We will be collecting leaves as well as other fun fall activities and crafts this week. Fall months are also a good time to learn about woodland creatures. This week we will talk about birds. Our color focus is on pink and brown, and we will learn about hearts and diamonds. We will read from our Bible Story book about Joseph and how he was sold into slavery by his brothers. He believed God meant it for good, and in the end, Joseph helped save his family from the famine.
Now that the weather is getting cooler, please send a sweater or jacket for your child in case we go outside that day. Our deadline for turning in payment for the field trip is this Friday, October 5th. PDS will then make the payment to Soergel Orchards for the whole group. Younger siblings are welcome to come, and if they would like to pick out a pumpkin, the $7 fee will apply to them as well.
The families who are scheduled to provide a snack this week are: Morse on Wednesday (10/3), Linner on Thursday (10/4), and Quigley on Friday (10/5). Thank you so much for your help!
