A Traveling We Will Go-
We have confirmed the dates for our two upcoming October field trips. The first destination is Mt. Pisgah Arboretum on October 17th. Children will have the opportunity to see Fall in the temperate forest biome.

The following week, October 25th, we will visit Northern Lights Christmas Tree Farm for “Colonial Harvest Days.” Students will choose a pumpkin to bring back to school. In addition, they will receive an ornamental corn, a gourd of choice and lots of fun! Please look for permission slips in Friday Folders and return A.S.A.P.

Sshhh....We’re reading
The awesome kids in Room 1 spend time every day on silent reading. We would love you to send a book from home that your child is interested in reading during this time.

Basket Reminder
We are still trying to collect items for our classroom basket. The basket will be raffled of during the Capital Campaign Kickoff Event on October 22nd. All monies raised will be used toward funding our new school!! Again, the basket theme is “Exploring Nature.” The kids brainstormed a list of ideas that would match the theme so talk to your child. If you would like additional ideas, please contact Emily or Alyson. The deadline for contributions is October 13th.
