Lords and Ladies Newsletter East: November 2013

October Happenings 

Throughout October we have been exploring the colors while focusing on finding these colors in our surroundings.  We have continued working on our letters, the sounds that they make, and words that begin with those letters.  The Lords and Ladies have also thoroughly enjoyed practicing holding their writing tools and scissors.  We look forward to learning more during this upcoming month! 

October Festivities

The children loved their time spent at Peach Tree Farms’ pumpkin patch.  Everyone enjoyed looking at the pumpkins and participating in the activities together.  We also had a great time at the Boo Blast as the children participated in various games and activities.  Thank you for contributing to our Halloween party as well!

Academy Closings: The Academy will be closed Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.  We hope you enjoy the additional time with your families.

Annual Academy Feast

We will be hosting the annual Academy Feast on Friday, November 22, 2013.  The Academy will be providing the turkey, yams, mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls.  We will be posting a sign-up sheet on the classroom door for additional side items for the meal. Families are welcomed and encouraged to attend this special lunch!

Important Information

If you have any information to share regarding your child (ex. potty, behavior, activities etc) please address with Ms. Shannon or Ms. Tobi. We would like you to talk with and engage with Ms. Jessica but she is only here for a few hours in the evening and may not know the answer or be able to get us a message in a timely manner. Thank you.

Water Cups

Please be sure you are only bringing water to school in your child’s water cups. We try to rinse out the juice and milk but may not always catch it and this can spoil throughout the day.

Upcoming Nutcracker Performance

The Academy’s annual production of the Nutcracker will be held at The Missouri Theatre on Thursday, December 12th, at 6:30pm.  We are looking forward to this event!  Letters have been sent home regarding costumes each child will need and purchasing tickets.
