October 2020 Bulletin

The children are doing a great job getting to know the routine at school.  Thank you parents and grandparents in helping make the drop-off and pick-up go smoothly!  We ask that you please label all of your student’s personal belongings, such as jackets and backpacks etc.  With you not coming into the building to help your child(ren) find their belongings, the teachers end up with a few extra articles of clothing that they don’t know who their owners are.  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 2020 Holiday Fundraiser kickoff begins on October 1st & 2nd and ends on the 12th and 13th.  All purchases will be delivered on December 1st 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 10/15 & 16 the school will be closed for the MN Professional Conference.

On 10/29 & 10/30 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 and bathroom friendly.  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!  The Pumpkin Party will be orchestrated by the teachers this year because of COVID.  

Other reminders for this month:  Please turn in your Health Care Summary signed by your healthcare provider before October 14th  if you haven’t already.    

As a reminder, we will be taking our school pictures on 11/11 & 11/12.  More information on Picture Day will be in the November Bulletin.


In God’s love,

Your Bright Beginnings Teaching Staff
