Happy Friday, All!
The leaves are falling in droves, and it is so much fun to watch our Angels running on the playground trying to catch them! The weather has been great for outside play (although they come in sweaty some days!), so the teachers are taking full advantage and getting them out as much as possible! Thank you to everyone for dressing their children in layers and with rubber-soled shoes so the children can fully participate in recess and movement activities! Please remember, as the days get cooler, to change out your child’s extra clothes for garments that are seasonally appropriate.
One of our young church members, Brendan Fitzgerald, is raising money for his Eagle Scout project. He will be building a shade structure on the outdoor worship area (in the field behind the church… take a walk back and check it out!) and adding some flag poles in the garden in front of the church. If you are interested in helping with his efforts, please check out the fundraiser booklet on the table outside of the office. Orders are due October 15. All funds raised will go directly to his project. Thank you!
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming the week of October 7! The lobby will be filled with books for sale, so be prepared!! We are looking for volunteers to help during the Scholastic Book Fair. The process of ringing up book sales is extremely easy and written directions are provided for easy reference. We need help during drop-off, pick-up, Enrichment pick-up, and during the Fall Harvest Party. Please go to the Sign Up Genius page to volunteer today! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050a44adae28a3f49-scholastic
Our 5th Annual Fall Harvest Party and Chili Cook-Off Contest is coming up on Friday, October 11 from 5:00-8:00. You can purchase your tickets at the bargain price of $12 for adults and $6 for children. A barbeque-style dinner will be served, along with pulled pork and drinks, and desserts can be purchased at the cash bake table. We will also have raffles and prizes for our chili cook-off winners! Please join us for music, playground fun, and great conversation!

October is here already?!? We have a busy month ahead, so please take note of the following important dates:
October 7-11 Scholastic Book Fair
October 11 Fall Harvest Party and Chili Cook-Off @ 5-8pm
October 15-16 3’s Field Trip to Farm Stan’s
October 23 4’s Field Trip to Beachmont
October 28-29 2’s Field Trip to Fresh McKenzie
**Look for permission slips to come home for the field trips in the coming weeks.
Please remember to remain in close proximity to your child while playing on the playground before or after school and enforce the posted rules. I expect that children are being safe and being kind and loving friends while here at school, even when they are signed out of our care. We really appreciate your help in ensuring this happens.
I hope you all have a great weekend! Enjoy the sunshine and make some fun memories!
