Dear Parents,

Welcome to November. I can’t believe how fast the months are flying by. We just finished celebrating Halloween and are now looking forward to learning about Thanksgiving. This is a wonderful time to continue to build on the skills of kindness, courtesy, and sharing. The children had a wonderful time sharing their costumes during the Halloween parade. Please look for the pictures on the Alcott website. As the cold weather draws near, please have the children dress appropriately and label all of their belongings.

Thank You

Linda, Nancy & Randi
