Dear Families,

I have so enjoyed the first month of school. I am working hard to learn names so I can personally
greet each student as they come in each day! I loved being able to lead Chapel in September and
teach the children about the creation story! I hope you all enjoyed completing the scavenger hunt
together as a family!
Just a reminder that there will be No School on Monday, October 9th.

This month, the chapel theme will be “God Honors His Promises”. Our chapel song will be “My
Lighthouse” by Rend Co. Kids. We will be reading the story of Noah’s Ark and discussing how God
keeps his promises. Each student will be getting a mini Noah’s Ark book to take home and color!

You will have an opportunity to have your child’s picture taken at school by a professional
photographer. The photographer will take both individual and class photos. Picture days are
scheduled for October 11 and 13. Order forms will be distributed by your child’s teacher.

Our annual Pumpkin Patch will take place on Wednesday, October 18 and Friday, October 20. On
these days the children will choose a small pumpkin, enjoy a snack of popcorn (toddler classrooms
will have an alternate snack) and apple juice and hear a special story.

The Halloween parade and parties will take place on October 27 and 31. The staff and children will
dress in Halloween costumes on those dates. Please do not send your child to school in a
costume that is scary (zombies, some monsters, etc) or that includes toy weapons of any
kind. If the weather is nice, the preschool classes will parade from the west entrance to the building,
around the front driveway, and back to the west entrance. Please stand on either side of the drive. We
will leave the building at 9:45. If it is raining, the parade will be canceled. The toddler classes will
have their own special parade at 9:45 am in the Kid’s Rock room. If you signed up to bring special
treats for Halloween parties, please remember to send in a pre-packaged item that does not contain
nut ingredients of any kind.

God Bless,
Katie Connors
