Have fun watching the squirrels with your child this week! If you find any fall items, acorns. etc-please send them in for our science center!
Please be mindful when sending your child to school with a cold. If they have had a fever, you should wait 24 hrs before sending them back to school. Also, if they are coughing excessively, or if their nose is really running- yellow or green mucus-please keep them home for the day.
We are working on name recognition and writing your child's name . You can continue this at home by writing your child's name with them in fun ways- shaving cream, sand, play dough etc.

A Squirrel Song(Take me out to the ballgame)
There's a squirrel up in my tree,
Looking right down at me.
Sometimes he hides in the flowerpot
Digging up all the bulbs he an spot
So I threw the squirrel some peanuts and he took them all away,
But I know that he will be back for more nuts someday!
