What a fun afternoon yesterday! Our room parents prepared three fun activities for our party. The children decorated mini pumpkins, practiced for the Olympic-worthy, short-range spider toss, and created their own tiny caramel apples.
Our afternoon concluded with a whole school sing-a-long and parade around the building grounds. Many of our classmates were ever so tired at the end of the day. Hopefully none of them fell asleep before they had the chance to finish Trick-or-Treating.
On October 31st we will hold our annual Halloween Party. The children are permitted to bring in their costumes in a labeled bag. Full-face masks and toy weapons will not be included during the festivities. Mrs. Pless and Mrs. Forst will help all of the children change into their costumes after lunch.
Our room parents are hosting many haunting activities beginning at 1:00. Around 2:00 the entire school will gather in the multipurpose room for a sing-along. By 2:15, the parade should begin. Although we don’t have enough room for everyone in the Pre-K classroom, parents are welcome to attend the parade.
For best viewing and photo-ops, line up along any of the walkways in front of the school. We will be coming out of the Campus Center, following the sidewalk along the front of the school to the Farm House walkway, and returning to our classroom via the back porch. Mrs. Pless and I will take the children inside to gather their belongings and then release them to their families.
Family members and caregivers may meet us at the back porch for pick-up.
Halloween was finally here and the students could barely hold in their excitement. They adorned their alter ego costumes and wiggled like crazy until the party began. Our awesome room moms decorated the classroom and prepared a variety of spooky activities and snacks for the students. Then we all traveled over to the Multipurpose room for a school-wide sing along/costume parade.
There is a slight possibly we went over board with picture-taking, but who could resist capturing such a silly time of year!
Just a quick note (from our fabulous room parents) regarding next week’s party:
- Children wear regular clothes to school and pack costumes. Mrs. Forst/Pless will help them change into their costumes
- No weapons are permitted as costume accessories, and please, no scary costumes
- Kids will parade at 2pm – if you want to watch – stand outside along the sidewalk or driveway (Party at 1pm for kids)
- Pick-up is same as usual – front area near library 2:30 (kids will duck in through the back door)
Don’t forget the Halloween party for parents Friday at 7pm.
Have a great week,
Nicole, Mary, and Brandie
Wow! What an exciting Friday! We have been gearing up for Halloween for the last two weeks, and the children are certainly excited. The day began with an exploration of masks in our drawing center. Many of the children choose to create their own spooky, silly, or simply amazing masks. Later in the day, our party was a fabulous success. A huge thank you goes out to our room parents who organized silly activities and snacks for the party. The children truly enjoyed decorating pictures of their friends. Using dry erase markers on laminated photos was a huge hit! After our party, we joined the rest of the school in the Multipurpose Room for a sing-along prior to our parade. Mrs. Hanczar taught us many, many spooky songs for the occasion. Finally we led the school in a parade around the main building. What a busy day! Happy Halloween!
Please bring costumes, without make-up, for our party and parade on Oct. 30. The children will change clothes after lunch. Our Room Parents have organized the activities for our party at 1:15. The North Campus parade will begin around 2:00. We will be walking along the sidewalk, in front of the schools. While the rest of the classes make a circuit around the main building, the Pre-K will be stopping at our back porch and returning to our room. This way we will be able to be ready for dismissal at 2:30 as usual. Tomorrow is going to be such an exciting day. We are really looking forward to it!
