Busy November

November is a busy month at Pre School.  The first week of November we will learn about our wonderful state of Minnesota.  We are thankful for summer memories of the days at the beach and cheering for the Minnesota Twins.  As we watch the ducks and loons (Minnesota's state bird) fly south for the winter, we look forward to sledding, skating and other Minnesota winter pass times.
Week two focuses on music as a theme: loud and soft, fast and slow, high and low, rhythm and rhyme.  We'll move to the beat!  It is only fitting that this will be the week of our Fall Program.  The students in our Blue, Purple, Red and Yellow Classes (4-5 year olds) will present a musical program Thursday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  Family and friends are invited to join us for the program and refreshments to follow.
November closes with Thanksgiving.  As we look back at our beginnings and the road our country has taken, we are thankful for our families, our homes, good food, the right to vote for our leaders, and the freedom to respectfully disagree.  We are especially thankful for the right to worship God as we please, for He is the source of all our blessings.  The children will celebrate by sharing in our annual Thanksgiving Feast of individual pizzas, milk, and pumpkin bars.  So much for turkey!

Halloween Parties

We hope your Halloween was fun and safe!   The weather was perfect for being outside.  Our Halloween parties at Pre School were excellent.  The pumpkins didn't rot before we carved them.  Some years they have!  The children were so cute in their costumes.  Thanks for all the effort you put into dressing them up.  We also appreciate the treats many of you shared with us!

 Our next big event is the Fall Program that the Blue, Purple, Red and Yellow classes are presenting on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 7:00 pm.  Is there anything better then watching 4 year olds sing and dance?  We will also include a slideshow of  these children in their fall activities, at the apple orchard and at their Halloween parties.  Friends and family are welcome.  
Please have the children in their classrooms by 6:45 pm.  The program will be upstairs in our Fellowship Hall.  See you then.
