October 7-11, 2019

We have had such a busy week in Pre-K! 

Both class pictures and individual pictures were a big success - lots of smiles from everyone!

We had a great science class! We took what we learned from Mrs. Mueller in art class and did an experiment on primary and secondary colors. The students know that red, yellow, and blue are the primary colors and orange, green, and purple are the secondary colors. 

The students watched in amazement as
we added food coloring to the water.

They waited patiently as we mixed the primary colors

and giggled with glee when they saw
the secondary colors form!

The students correctly predicted that red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green, and red and blue make purple. "Mrs. Barrera, we learned that in art with Mrs. Mueller! We remember because we are smart!"

We also spent some time decorating our classroom for October and fall!

Pre-K and Kindergarten students partnered up to start working on our first service project! Stay tuned for more information!

Looking ahead:
  • There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, October 14.
  • There is show and tell on Wednesday, October 16. The topic will be something that begins with /m/. Please have your child prepared to share 3 clues about the object they chose to share.
  • The Halloween Mission Party is scheduled for Thursday, October 31. Please refer to the email that was sent out earlier this week. Children should come to school dressed in costume (with sneakers). We are planning many fun games and activities for the students! Dismissal will be at 12:00 noon that day and there will be no HCA Plus. More information will be sent home soon!
