It is time for the first field trip of the year. Parents, grandparents, and siblings are welcome to join us at Blake’s Apple Orchard on the 12th and 13th.  We will meet at Blake’s at 9:45 and the field trip will last about two hours.  We will go for a train ride, pick apples, small pumpkins, have a donut and apple cider, and will have admission to the barnyard.  The cost is $12 for each person attending.  Money is due by the 9th.

We will be having a Halloween party on October 29th and 30th. Please remember to wear costumes that are appropriate to preschool age. Due to restrictions this year we decided to do a trunk or treat in our back parking lot.  Parents will need to wear masks handing out their treat to the kids and our encouraged to decorate their cars. You can come set up anytime. We will bring them out about 11:15. Class will be dismissed at 12:00 on these days.

Perhaps you are wondering how your child is doing in the classroom.  Sometimes you may hear a different version at home!  We will have our conferences on November 2nd.   If you feel you would like to come in and have a short meeting with the teachers, please sign up on the conference sheet.  There will be no school on this day.

Picture day is usually in October.  We were hoping to get you feedback on how you feel about picture day, should we postpone or schedule a date this month.  We have been in touch with them and they are following all the covid measures and will wear facemasks well in the school.  There is only two of them.  Please email us your feedback at petiteschool@gmail.com.

On October 27th and 28th we will be having orange and black day!  Dress in the colors for the day.
