OCTOBER PRESCHOOL NEWS

     

October is Fire Safety Month.  The Sherrills Ford Fire Department will bring the fire truck to the preschool on October 3rd and 4th.  The firemen will be explaining the importance of fire safety to the children.  We want to thank the firefighters for their time and dedication. Just a reminder: Don’t forget to change your smoke alarm batteries.

We are in the process of conducting our assessments with the children.  I hope you take the time to review your child’s checklist.  The checklist lets us know where your child is struggling and also gives you the opportunity to work with them at home. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress and would like to set up a conference, please let the teachers know and they will be glad to discuss this with you.

Scholastic Book Orders will be sent home this month with your child.  This gives you the opportunity to order quality books at affordable prices.  Each month, you have the option of turning your form in to me or going online and placing your order.  When you place your order through www.scholastic.com, not only will your child benefit by having a new book, but the Preschool receives points to help in ordering new books for our library! 

We had Chapel Time last month with Miss Jill.  Miss Jill is our Director of Children and Youth Ministries at Mt Pleasant Church.  Each month, we will visit the Sanctuary where the children will sing songs and learn stories about Jesus.

We also had Stretch-n-Grow with Miss Hilary and Kids Love Music with Miss Rose.  We are so thankful to be able to offer these three programs to the children.

To end the month of October, all classes will be having Halloween parties.  If you are interested in supplying goodies for the party, please check with your child’s teacher.  Steve Hager will provide the children with a hayride again this year around the church property on October 30th and October 31st at 10:00 am.  The children look forward to this every year!

As always, if you feel there is an issue that is not being addressed, you may email Jessica Little, our Parent Representative for the Preschool Board, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or (704)975-0027.

Each year, we like to remind parents to not leave their infants in the car while dropping off or picking up their preschooler.  Even though this is a church, we can never be too safe when it comes to our children. 

Don’t forget, the preschool will be closed on Monday, October 21st.  As you can tell, October is going to be a busy month, so make sure your children get plenty of rest! 

Field Trip Information

A field trip to Red Wolf Farm in Maiden has been scheduled for Monday, October 28th.  We need to be there by 9:00 am.  Parents are responsible for transporting their child to the location.  The cost is $10.00 for children (which includes a pumpkin) and $9.00 for adults.  The children that attend the MWF class only, will not have to pay the $10.00 fee because they will be missing preschool that day.  Parents will still be responsible to pay for themselves and any siblings. 

There is a children’s maze, wagon rides, animals to pet, corn tubs, pedal tractors, pumpkin games and playground equipment to enjoy.  Picnic tables are available if anyone would like to bring a lunch.

The children attending preschool on TTH are invited.  I will need to get a count of those attending and collect the $10.00 from the TTH class by Friday, October 18th.  Parents will need to pay Red Wolf Farm their $9.00 entrance fee on the day of the field trip.
