“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments


Thank you for visiting the Preschool web page.
I cannot believe that we are already close to the end of October.  We have been learning about apples and the changing season.  We also learned some basic fire safety routines.  Thanks again to fireman Matt who did a great job in showing the children what he has to wear and why.  In the classroom this week our theme is Halloween and Pumpkins. We have been working on learning some new songs, name recognition, size (which is bigger) and sharing what we know about pumpkins. We will read stories revolved around Halloween and pumpkins and look and see what is inside our pumpkin.  We also have surprise going home for halloween that the children chose to make.
Please remember to sign up for a conference: this is the only time formally set aside during the school year for parents and teachers to talk about your wonderful kids.   See the sign-up genius link in the OLL Newsletter for last week.

On Wednesday, Oct 22, we visit the Pumpkin Farm! Please send your child's booster/car seat with them on Wednesday morning.  We have drivers that have been assigned.  If you wish to secure your child's seat properly in the designated drivers car please arrive in time to do this.  Please label your child's seat as needed.  Labels are available in the classroomPlease send your child in clothing they will stay warm and dry in on Wednesday. 

Next Tuesday, Oct 28, is our Halloween Party! Your child is welcome to bring their costume, or a piece of their costume to school to change into for the party. Please leave any pretend weapons that may accompany your child's costume at home Parents volunteering at the party are welcome to arrive at 11.35 am.  All other parents please pick-up at the usual time.  We do not have space in our classroom to accomodate everyone.

Thanks so much for all the great Show and Tell's for October.  The November calendar will be out soon.
