Patti's Preschool Newsletter, November 2021


Our November theme is All About Families. Our lesson plans will include finger plays, songs, books, and flannel board stories about families. The children will be making family trees, special family books, and family graphs. Thanksgiving is also part of our November theme so watch for some fun Thanksgiving Day projects.


Scholastic book orders are due on Friday morning, November 12. Ordering online is easy using our class code: GW3RF. We receive free books and classroom supplies for the school with every parent order placed. Thanks for ordering!


We are looking forward to our Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday, November 23, and Wednesday, November 24. We are asking parents to send a dessert or paper products (plates, napkins) for the feast. Sign-up sheets will be posted on ClassDojo. Please send a lunch for your child if he/she doesn’t participate in our hot lunch program.

Celebrating birthdays this month are Grace, Dane, Vivienne, Georgia, Hazel, Madison R., Zoe, Livia, Andrew, Estella and Isabella. We hope everyone has a fun time celebrating!


We will be closed November 25 and 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Please let the front office know if your child will be absent during Thanksgiving week. We would like to know by Friday, November 12th. Thank you!

We were treated to yummy donuts from Roxane and Mark Bennett as well as from Julia Wiles and Kevin Ketelsleger. Lots of smiles were on display at school! Thank you to the Bennets for bringing in newspaper and egg cartons for our art centers. We are grateful to Regina and Aaron McConnell for the generous donation of classroom supplies. Our students are having a blast with the pop-its from Valerie and Kyle Cason. Natalie Arveson surprised us with pumpkin lattes and treats from Starbucks. It was a great way to start our day! The eyedroppers from Stacy Wilton are perfect for our STEM centers. We sincerely appreciate our thoughtful parents!


Next month we’re having free vision screenings on December 1 and 2 provided by the Elks Preschool Vision Screening Program for children ages 3 to 6. Release forms will be sent home for parents to complete. Please return the forms to the front office if you’d like your child to participate. (Forms will go home at the beginning of December.)
