2-3 NEWS LETTER
October is here and the children are transitioning well into the 2-3 extended day classroom routine. During the fall season the temperatures can change quickly as the day progresses, so we ask that all children dress in layers and bring the necessary clothing to be comfortable outside (coats, hats, gloves, etc…). We spend at least an hour outside everyday and we would like them to be comfortable and enjoy their time outside.
During the month of October the group will have the opportunity to show their creativity by making gauze mummies out of jars, pudding cups that look like Frankenstein, create Halloween themed clay creations, create spiders and ghosts out of lollipops, bake a delicious pumpkin pie, paint gourds, and of course participate in the school wide door decorating contest.
To help defray the cost of the gourd painting activity and promote sharing within our 2-3 community, we are asking each child to bring two gourds to extended day. Furthermore, the 2-3 classroom is in need of clean glass jars for activities planned during the first week of October.
Gourds (drop off week of 10/20)
Clean glass jars (on going)
Clean glass baby food jars
Please Note: HEDP will be closed on 10/14th to commemorate the day Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
Thank you for your support and generosity!
