Bright Beginnings October 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 their cars.  We want to keep this part of our day as safe as possible for everyone.  We ask that you please label all of your student’s personal belongings, such as jackets, backpacks, lunch boxes, etc. 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 2022 Holiday Fundraiser kickoff begins on October 1st and ends on the 20th at 10:00 pm.  All purchases will be made on-line and delivered on November 29th to the preschool. To place your order go directly to and enter Store ID: 638. Brochures are included with the Bulletin, showing pictures and prices of the greens and poinsettias which are beautiful and perfect for the upcoming Holiday Season.  This fundraiser is our only way to raise money for our Field Trips, Special Events and equipment needed for the school.  BBCP will receive 30% of all plant sales and 15% of plant card sales.  If you have any questions, please ask your teacher.  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! 

October 14th, we will take our first field trip. The 3 day students will going to Fire Station #5 in Maple Grove to have an opportunity for some hands-on learning and life saving lessons. When we are finished, we will return to preschool and share the highlights of our experience.  

On 10/20 & 21 the school will be closed for the MN Professional Conference.

On 10/27 & 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 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!  

Other reminders for this month:  Please turn in your Health Care Summary signed by your healthcare provider before October 12th  if you haven’t already.    

As a reminder, we will be taking our school pictures on 11/9 & 11/10.  More information on Picture Day will be in the November Bulletin.

In God’s love,

Your Bright Beginnings Teaching Staff
