Happy November Purple Aprons! Time has been flying by and we have been very busy learning about farm life, the animals that live on a farm and things that grow on a farm.   

 Our Grand Prix-School Fundraiser was a huge success!! We would like to shout out a special THANK YOU to every parent/ family member who volunteered and made the Grand Prix so much fun.  All proceeds will directly benefit our school and classrooms. A friendly reminder to all that participated in the Grand Prix: pledges are due by Friday, November 15thJ

Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins along with spiders, bats and cats filled our classroom last month, which made our Halloween party boo-ti-ful! The children looked adorable in their costumes. Trick or treating and the parade were the highlights of the day!

 November will be just as fun! This month in class we will talk about autumn and study leaves, make owls and talk about all that we are thankful for. Thursday, November 7th is Parent /Teacher conference day. Please sign up for the time that works best for you. I look forward to meeting with all of my wonderful parents. There will be no school for the children on that Thursday. If needed, childcare will be provided in the nursery during your conference time. Our Thanksgiving feast will be held on Thursday, November 21st at 3pm. Please join us for this wonderful celebration in Fellowship Hall! Your children will be singing some fun Thanksgiving songs for you and sharing delicious pumpkin pie.

Finally, if there are any parents or grandparents/family members who would like to share their profession or special talent with our class, please come and talk to me. We would love to have you visit our class. The children always enjoy special guests!

Mr. Boccolucci and I are truly blessed and thankful to have such amazing children to work with every day! Thank you Purple Apron families for doing such a terrific job with your children and for your continued support and generosity. We really appreciate and are THANKFUL for all of you!

Love,

Mrs. Nicholson and Mr. Boccolucci

 Looking Ahead:
