Dear parents,

Happy November!

October is gone! It has been a great school year so far. It is a great joy to come to work every day and see our loving bright students and having very supportive parents. We really appreciate it.

Over the past two weeks we learned about Five Senses and Halloween.

We worked on our five senses crafts, read books, played games and got familiar with the five senses. We also had so much fun prepping about Halloween parade, singing songs and make fun Halloween crafts. We enjoyed pumpkin picking on our school’s garden, pumpkin decorating, carving Jack- o- Lantern and we also ate roasted pumpkin seeds for snack.

In science we had so much fun with Ms. Marie’s Haunted Science lab. The exploding Pumpkin experiment got everyone so amazed, and we all left the science lab with a secret message gift from the ghost.

We also finished this week with the Halloween Parade and the Apple tasting/ Voting Day. On Thursday we all voted on our favorite apple and got to count/ tally the votes and each student got a “I Voted’ sticker.

All the best,

Kaltrina, Diane, Marie and Ruby
