OCTOBER 2016    M-W-F Class

Our first month of preschool has just flown by and we have already learned so much! We are READERS! We have begun our sight word list and by the end of the month should be able to identify the words: I, see, the, like and a.  We learned all about the letter sounds of M and F in Sept and we will next focus on the letter sounds of C, T, S and P.  We will make explorations in science learning about spiders, skeletons, pumpkins, turtles, teeth,  and leaves.  We will learn about fire safety and appreciate learning more about our new friends as well as celebrating the season of Fall.  During our history class we learned about the American flag and have begun reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at Circle Time.   We will learn about the famous explorer, Christopher Columbus.  Reminder: There is no school on Oct. 10th.

We will be walking across the street to visit the Hallam Fire Company this month on Oct. 7th.  (Parents need not attend, but are welcome) The Yorkana Fire Company will visit Trinity on Oct. 12th at 10:30 AM and all our welcome if you would like to join us.  This includes PM students and siblings.

October 17th is our field trip to the Susan Byrnes Center in York.  AM class meets there at 9:30 and PM class at 12:30. There is no cost for this field trip. An adult must accompany a student.

On October 26th we will be having a LEAF SCIENCE LAB.  Please send your child to school with a leaf that day.

Our first holiday celebration will be held on October 28th.  We need special grown up helpers to assist us with our Harvest/Halloween Party that day.  A sign up sheet can be found in the hall.  We would love for you to join us to make this a fun and special day. Students are encouraged to come to school in costume that day and may bring a “treat” to share with their classmates if they choose. We will be making treat bags.

We are looking for your feedback, opinions and suggestions regarding our school.  Thank you in advance for participating in our first parent feedback survey for the year. Surveys will be distributed this week in paper form at pickup.  Online surveys can be found and completed here:   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5863JZZ
