Dear Parents,

 

The children have been enjoying the last few weeks of school. We have been creating many beautiful fall art lessons including watercolor leaves and apples. When we are outside, we have been exploring nature and collecting various items such as acorns and leaves and the occasional unique rocks. We did a sorting lesson with apples and leaves that was sent home. The children finished all their self-portraits which are so creative. They had a lot of fun using paints and collage items to create these unique portraits.

 

It was great seeing most of you on our Back-to-School night zoom, thank you for attending. We will be sharing more pictures with you of our classroom as the lessons change throughout the year.

 

There will be a Halloween parade outside on Friday, October 29th that families are invited to attend (weather permitting). Families are asked to wear a mask and social distance themselves from others. Further details to follow.

 

We need more wipes for our classroom, please send in more if you can, thank you in advance.

 

 

Kindly,

Ms. Lorraine and Ms. Patti
