The first month of school has flown by already, and what a busy month it has been. The first few weeks of school are all about getting to know each other and the daily routine. The children have enjoyed coming together at circle time where we might sing a name song, have a question of the day, or talk about upcoming ideas. 

Our latest interests have been Eric Carle books. We read many of his books and talked about the illustrations. We created art of our own inspired by his work.

In September we celebrated Grandparents Day by inviting the grandparents to spend the morning with us at preschool. We offered snacks, refreshments, activities on the playground, and opened the schoolhouse for viewing.

Thank you to our community members who supported us by purchasing mums from our fundraiser. We sold 378 flowers this year! Be on the lookout for future fundraisers. We have some exciting events coming back this year.
