October 2019 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. We are not allowed to park in front of the Church along the curb.  The month of October is extremely busy with many events.


We are excited to say we are Fundraising with Gertens Greenhouse this year!  Our Gertens 2019 Holiday Fundraiser kickoff begins on October 1st & 2nd and ends on the 10th and 11th.  All purchases will be delivered on December 3rd to the school. The greens and poinsettias are beautiful and perfect for the upcoming Holiday Season.  This fundraiser is our only way to raise money for our special events and equipment needed for the school. We would like to reach a goal of 100% participation by all students in the school.  With everyone’s support, we will make this fundraiser a HUGE success! 


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


October 24th & 25th, we take our first field trip. Students will get to experience a hayride to the pumpkin patch and pick their own pumpkins.  Explore the Spider Web Pedal Trikes, Corn Box, Farm Dig Sandbox, do some hay jumping, go through the Mini Maze and Obstacle Course and visit the Barnyard animals.  When we are finished, we will have a good ol’ farm picnic. The Little Explorers S.T.E.M. class will begin as soon as we return from our field trip at 1:15.  


No school on October 28th.  Osseo School District is closed.


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 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 9th  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
