PDO II November Newsletter

The months seem to be flying by as we bid farewell to October with our fun Halloween festivities. The parade was a huge success! The children enjoyed showing off their costumes to all of the parents and their fellow classmates. We hope you enjoyed it as well. Special thanks to those of you who brought treats to make our parties fun!

What a wonderful time we had in PDO II welcoming the fall season. We learned some new songs and read many books about pumpkins, colorful leaves, and Halloween.

We made beautiful autumn trees to decorate our hallway and marble painted leaves for our classroom tree. For letter “F” week, we painted farm scenes and made a paper plate fish.

We finger painted spooky shaving cream ghosts for letter “G” week and learned the rhyme, “Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate”. During letter “H” week we made Halloween Hats and Halloween Bats. We finished the month with glittery spider webs and painted jack-o-lantern faces.
We enjoyed the beautiful weather this past month as we played outside in the fresh air. We’re hoping to have many more days of outdoor playtime before winter arrives, so please be sure to send labeled jackets and hats when needed.

In November we will make turkeys and Indian headbands, read books about the first Thanksgiving, and talk about what we are thankful for as we prepare for the upcoming holiday. We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving break and hope you enjoy the time you get to spend with your families.

Happy birthday to Lucy Neely and Parker Welty who will be turning three in November!

During this upcoming season of Thanksgiving, we hope you know just how thankful we are for your children, and the time that you allow us to spend with them.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Nancy F., Denece, Maureen and Nancy D.
