October ​Newsletter

We had a great start to the new school year! We are so happy to see all of the smiling faces as they come into school ready to learn!  The SCP staff has been working hard to help all the children adjust to the school routine. Separation anxiety can come up at any time, even as we approach our second month of school.  We understand and work with the children with this ongoing process.  Please feel free to speak with the office staff or your child’s teacher if you have any concerns. 

In addition to this month’s classroom learning curriculum, we are looking forward to learning about the season of Fall, making keepsake Halloween projects, learning about how to be good listeners, picking pumpkins and celebrating Orange Day and participating in voting! 

Extended Day Programs: Our Stay and Play and Kindergarten Readiness classes will be starting this month.  Please refer to the calendar for the days these classes take place. 

Fundraisers: Our Wrapping Paper and More catalog fundraiser will be sent home on Tuesday, October 15th and Wednesday, October 16th.  Orders are due back by Friday, October 25th. Your participation in our fundraisers is very much appreciated to help support our preschool!

The SCP is having a Bake Sale! Classes will be assigned a date to bring in an item for the sale.  After class on Wednesday, October 16th, Thursday, October 17th and Friday, October 18th, a table will be set up on the front patio of the school to purchase an item.  A detailed flyer will be sent home to all students on the sale. 

Orange Day/Pumpkin Picking: To celebrate the season of Fall, we will have an Orange Day celebration and go pumpkin picking!!!!  The children can wear something orange to school on this day and the day will be filled with orange fun!!!!  We will also be setting up a “pumpkin patch” on the playground of the preschool.  Each class will go with their classroom teachers to pick a pumpkin.

For the 2x2, 3x2 and 4x5 classes, Orange Day will be on Thursday, October 24th.  For the 3x3, 4x3 and 4C classes, Orange Day will be on Friday, October 25th. Two by Two will get to pick a pumpkin on Friday, October 25th. 

Preschool Lobby Borrowing Book Shelf: We have a book shelf in the preschool lobby thanks to Ashley Soliwoda, a high school Girl Scout from Troop 3642 Girl Scout Gold Award project. Ashley’s Gold Award project is to promote the importance of reading to young children. The bookshelf will contain books that parents can borrow to bring home to read to their child/children. Please feel free to borrow a book from the shelf and bring it back when you are done. Happy Reading!

Your Vote Counts:  Even preschoolers can have a say! We are giving our preschoolers an opportunity to have their opinion count!  We will be having a SCP vote on what book the SCP will all read together in December.  The students will vote and we will announce the book that wins on November 6th. A ballot box will be in the preschool lobby with voting ballots.  Voting will begin on Monday, October 28th and end on Friday, November 1st.  One vote per student please. May the best book win!!!
