Happy Halloween

Hard to believe that October is nearing its  end. We had a great month learning about autumn, apples, pumpkins and witches!! Our favorite song is "Five Little Pumpkins."
Our classroom routines have become second nature. Along with our regular activities, we have been enjoying staying fit and healthy with "Girl Power" on Mondays and Wednesdays and we love Art on Fridays. Our outdoor playground is also a favorite Nursery activity!
November is around the corner... Our themes will be Thanksgiving and Family. We will continue to say our prayers and learn some new ones.

Dressed for Halloween, we pose beneath our spooky artwork.

Welcome to Our Classroom

Morning Meeting - After getting unpacked, we meet at the Morning Center to discuss the calendar, which includes the month and counting the date (all the way up to 30 or 31!); the season and weather outside; and our plans for the day.
The Reading Center - The library is open during choice time. We also take turns picking out a book each day for Mrs. Junsch to read to the class. There are always a few favorites, classics, and seasonal theme books each month.

Manipulatives and Music - Our collection of toys to work on small motor skills, cooperation, building, and imagination. We have music time to practice listening and singing skills. We also have music on during choice time.

Arts, Crafts, and Puzzles - Here, we learn problem solving, small motor skills, and artistic expression.

Clothing and Uniforms

Please make sure that all of your daughter's belongings are labeled with first and last name. Please follow the proper uniform code. No earrings except studs, and no nail polish or jewellery.

Your daughter should have a slicker with a hood. We DO NOT ALLOW umbrellas for safety reasons.

We ask that each parent send extra clothing in a large Ziploc bag.

Each girl needs an oversized t-shirt for art that will fit over her uniform.


If your daughter is absent from school for any reason, please call the school and inform the school secretary. When your daughter returns to school, please send in a note stating when and why your daughter was absent.

Arrival and Dismissal

Our day begins at 9:00am. At this time the children will be picked at the front of school under the blue awning. If you arrive after the children have been brought to the classroom, please bring your daughter to the office and she will be taken to the classroom. Dismissal is at 11:30am.
