Happy October!

It was so nice to see so many families at Linvilla Orchards last weekend! Hope you all enjoyed the day!

We are working on "throwing kindness like confetti" in Pre-K! The boys and girls are learning to treat others how they want to be treated, be inclusive of everyone, use good manners, and be a good friend. They had a lot of fun helping us complete our bulletin board.

This week we have been talking more about fall and the seasons.  The children love discussing the weather changes throughout the day.  They enjoy searching for leaves of different colors and shapes when we are outside on the playground and the field.  With our Weekly Reader, the students learned more about their five senses and autumn leaves.

In gym class, the students have been working hard on their balancing skills!

Show and Tell was so much fun! So many children came prepared with three clues to help their classmates guess what object they chose to share. The students had fun guessing the objects from the clues! Here are some pictures of some great things that begin with the /s/ sound:

Tatum and her stethoscope, Marianne and her sticker book,
Malayka and her Shopkins, Jonathan and his sunglasses

Next Wednesday, October 11, will be the Early Childhood Class Coffee. This event will take place at 480 Penn Avenue and will begin at 6:30 pm. It will be a great opportunity to learn more about HCA and socialize with other parents. The Early Childhood teachers will be there as well. We are looking forward to a great night!

  Upcoming Events:
  • Reminder: there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, October 9.
  • Show and Tell on Wednesday, October 11, will be "Something that starts with M."  We will follow the same procedure as last week.  Please help your child prepare three clues to help their classmates guess what object they chose to share and please practice with him/her at home. Show and Tell is a great way for the children to develop their public speaking skills!
  • Individual pictures will be taken on Thursday, October 12. If you would like your child's picture taken, please return the form that was sent home with your choice of package on or before the 12th. The children's pictures are only taken from the waist up, so please have your child wear sneakers to school that day.  Weather permitting, we will still go outside and they do have gym class.
Enjoy the long weekend!
