School News - October 2012

Dear Families,

October finds us settling into our school routines.  The children come each day ready and eager to learn. They have learned their friends’ names and the important truth found in God’s Word, Isaiah 43:1, where the Lord says, “Fear not, I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are Mine.”  May they always take comfort in knowing that God knows their names.

 During October the 4’s learning units include: the fall season and nocturnal animals, explorers like Christopher Columbus and also some pumpkin fun.  The artist for Oct is Piet Mondrian.  We will be looking at some of Mondrian’s works and create artwork in his style.  We will also be listening to classical composers in Oct, learning to identify different instruments in an orchestra.  The 3’s will learn about the features, life cycle and habitat of owls, examine fall leaves and sort by shape, size and color, and, of course, pumpkins.

 Bible stories for 4’s focus on God’s Covenant promise of salvation given to Noah, then to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  This month the 3’s will learn about loving Bible families including Abraham and Sarah and Isaac and Rebekah.

 The children are blessed each week at Chapel.  Pastor Mark and Mr. Joel have taught us some praise songs and tell us of God’s great love for each of us.  Our chapel offering this fall quarter is going to Heifer International.  We will be donating flocks of chickens ($20.00 per flock) to families in need around the globe. The offering basket is on the table by the nametags.  You may donate at any time.

 There are lots of fun events in October: Preschool Sunday, Date Night with free babysitting, school photos, field trips and costume parties.  Please check your child’s calendar for specific dates.  Information about school pictures will be coming home soon.

 May the Lord Bless Your Family With His Joy and Peace,
Darlene Thauland
