October 2018 Bright Beginnings Bulletin

The children are doing a great job getting to know the routine at school.  Please be extra careful in the parking lot as the students are coming and going from class.  We want to keep this part of our day as safe as possible for everyone. The month of October is extremely busy with many events.

October 8th & 9th, we take our first field trip. We will be taking an apple orchard tour at Apple Jack Orchards.  We will be tasting a variety of apples, some apple cider and eating apple donuts, while listening to an educational talk with visual aids about apple growing. There will be an interactive apple picking demonstration and pollination puppet play for the students. We will also take a wagon ride through the pick-your-own orchard.  This ride will be narrated by the tractor driver for even more information! Everyone will take home one apple and lots of memories from their orchard experience. The Little Explorers S.T.E.M. class will begin as soon as we return from our field trip.  

On 10/18 & 19 the school will be closed for the MN Professional Conference

On 10/30 & 10/31 we will be having our Pumpkin Parties.  When choosing your child’s costume for the Pumpkin Party at school, please keep in mind that they must be non-violent. Some suggestions that work out nice are: Animals, Insects, Prince/Princess, Cowboy/girl, Storybook Characters, etc. In the past, the children have brought some type of peanut free treat to pass out to their classmates at the end of the party. They usually go home with plenty of goodies to share with their family!

Other reminders for this month:  Please turn in your Health Care Summary signed by your healthcare provider before October 10th  if you haven’t already.    

As a reminder, we will be taking our school pictures on 11/13 & 11/14.

In God’s love,

Your Bright Beginnings Teaching Staff
