PDO III October Newsletter

Our school year began so smoothly with friends reuniting, and new friendships really beginning to take shape now. It truly is “God’s hand at work” when we are witness to these awesome kiddos we have the joy to work with – such a blessing!! A very happy birthday to our August friends Lily Donakowski, Grace Lynch, Harper Anderson, and Ava Hendon!

We learned so much during the month of September. Pet Week is always a highlight. The children LOVE to bring in pictures of their pets, and tell us EVERYTHING about them! How smart are we?? VERY!! We all discovered that when we focused on a two week unit all about letters and numbers. The month came to a close with Apple Week. Such fun tasting all of the different kinds of apples, and deciding which our favorite was, and making colorful apple prints. Happy September birthdays to Samantha DeuPree, Blake Hanna, Jett Moxley, Sloan Gunter, and Jack and Leah Tucker!!

October ushers in the fall and such fun in PDO III. We begin the month by creating our GIANT classroom Jack-O-Lantern for the bulletin board. Highlights include…Ghost lollipops, Painting Pumpkins, Spooky Witches, Black Cats, Candy Corn Bingo, Making Yummy Donut Spiders, Telling our own Ghost Stories, Fire Safety, JoHo The Storyteller, Mad Science, and of course our Halloween Parade upstairs in the church sanctuary, at 9:00 AM on October 31st!! October birthday fun with Claire and Emily Gardner, and Julia Hunter!
