What a fun-filled week we have had! From making mini pizzas to dressing in brown from head to toe, and even frolicking through our Fall Carnival, your children have been very busy!

Our beloved Chef Parker went above and beyond her call of duty this week. In addition to preparing delicious snacks for your kiddos, she visited each classroom with a special lesson on nutrition. The children learned about foods that keep their bodies healthy and got to create and enjoy their very own nutritious mini pizzas with sauce, cheese, and a variety of veggies on top!

On Wednesday, we wore brown together! The perfect cozy color for this dreary November weather, brown shirts, brown pants, and brown shoes filled our preschool.

Fall Carnival was marvelous fun! Each classroom got to take a turn in our turkey-themed gym, moving from one delightful station to the next. Turkey pins tumbled to the floor as students tried their hand at turkey bowling. Vibrantly decorated necklaces, clay leaf prints, and turkey headbands took shape in each child’s clever fingers.  Some children took silly snapshots at our autumnal photo booth, while others layered frosting on delicious mini cupcakes. Last but not least, a bean bag toss and pin the patch on the scarecrow kept everybody giggling on the festive occasion!

You may have noticed that we brought out our Christmas decor early this year! We are excited to take part in Hand in Hand’s Toy Drive with our little Christmas tree. You will have the opportunity to choose a gift tag for a child in need from our Christmas tree at drop off or pick up. Each gift tag lists the needs and/or wishes of a child in need. Your unwrapped toy/gift, labeled with the gift tag, can be placed under our tree at drop off or pick up through Monday, December, 7th. Gift tags are limited, so please only take a tag if you intend to return it with a gift. We look forward to making these children’s wishes come true with your help this Christmas season!
