October 2016

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 important truths found in God’s Word.
Isaiah 43:1 tells us, “Fear not, I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are mine!”  Our prayer is that these children always know that they belong to God.
Bible Stories…
The children will learn about Bible heroes Noah, Joshua and David.  They’ll find out how God
empowered ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things for Him.

The kinders are eager to learn how to read and write.  They faithfully practice and their skills
improve daily.  Math, Bible Time and of course, recess fill out our days.  During Oct they will be
learning about body systems and how wonderfully God has created us.

The 4’s…
During October the 4’s learning units include: the fall season, nocturnal animals, and of course some
pumpkin fun.  The artist for Oct is Piet Mondrian.  They will be looking at some of Mondrian’s works
and create artwork in his style.  The children will also be listening to classical composers in October
learning to identify different instruments in an orchestra.
Extended Day Kids…
Hooray, we are learning to read!  The children are learning to read, write and listen with
MacMillan/McGraw Hill Letterbooks.

The 3’s…
The 3’s will celebrate the color orange.  They will use their senses examining fall leaves and sorting
by shape, size and color.  Pumpkins are also in the plans.  Practicing with school tools, especially
scissors, offers challenge and a sense of accomplishment.

The children are blessed each week at Chapel.  The teachers take turns teaching the children praise songs and telling them of God’s great love.

There are lots of fun events in October: Pancake Breakfasts, Annual Harvest Party and Chili Cook-
Off, School Photos, and Class 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
