A NOTE FROM MS. NANCY/MS. DEBI
We are finally seeing and feeling the signs of Fall. Please make sure your child is properly clothed for
the crisp mornings and that they have Fall and Winter clothing in their cubbies. Please periodically check your child’s cubby to insure they have a change of clothes in case of accidents. We have a very limited supply of extra clothes.


If you missed our Dinner and Art Under the Stars, we had a wonderful time. We hope you will be able to attend our next event. The weather was very cooperative, food was great and we enjoyed seeing and hearing from some of our alumni students. The art work was outstanding and we appreciate Mr. Adam, our art teacher, who helped
with the younger students, especially the Primary by drawing each piece for every child. We are blessed that Ms. Traci is not only a great teacher but a wonderful artist herself and helped with her class. Thank you also to Mark Montgomery (Ms. Debi’s husband) who strung all the lights for us and Ms. Debra for helping to organize the event.

THANKSGIVING FEAST

We hope all parents are able to attend our feast. This is a big celebration and a time to get together. You will either be asked to bring a certain food or a chance to sign up to bring food, depending on your classroom. More information will be coming soon.

WONDER MOVIE

We were privileged last year to meet the organization behind the movie “Wonder”. This
movie is about a boy that looks different and his real life story. We are taking Kindergarten and above to see it. Parents are welcome to attend also. We just need to know in advance if you plan on attending. The children that are not able to attend, will have a short work time and a movie to watch themselves so they do not feel left out of this field trip. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Ms. Abbey.

PRIMARY CLASSES

Ms. Nancy/Ms. Roslyn – Thank you for your help with the Community Project. We were amazed at the variety of buildings or things in our community that the children came up with. We set up our community with streets and directions and allowed the children to walk the streets and follow directions. Attached is a picture. Everybody was a winner but congratulations to our top three winners: 1 st place, Elijah White (our first water
tower), 2 nd place – Sydney Wallace, and 3 rd place (a four way tie) – Caroline Foley, Cheyanne Cornutt,
Clarity Dang and Aria Myrie.

For November, both classes will:
 Discuss the Mayflower voyage.
