What a great week we have had! We began our week with a new song, “Gus the Goat.” The boys sorted (and gobbled down) gummy bears, searched for grapes in the sandbox, and built with gears this week!

We worked with lots of pumpkins and fall items, and we especially enjoyed watching our jack-o-lantern transform into a rotten gourd - perfect for compost! This science experiment has taken two weeks to complete and was inspired by the story Pumpkin Jack. See if your son can share with you what you can do with the aging pumpkins around your house!

Please remind your friends and family that our Admissions Department is hosting an Early Childhood Open House next Thursday, November 8! We can’t wait for everyone to visit our awesome school!

Enjoy the gorgeous fall weather this weekend!

We had a fun-filled “F” week! We have been working on recalling all of the letters we have learned. We are sending these letter crafts home after we practice each one, and we encourage you to make a book or folder to practice at home as well. The boys had a fantastic time making their “F is for Flag” letter art!

We are getting acclimated to checking out library books and hope you are enjoying reading them with your son. Please be sure to bring your library book back to school each Monday.

The most fabulous part of our week was playing football on the field with our 6th grade buddies! PK boys sure do enjoy spending time with these special guys. We hope you had a fun weekend cheering on your favorite football team!

Spotlight on Special Areas - A message from Mrs. Szeng:

Since August, we have learned some class commands: Have a seat, stand up, keep quiet, line up, and raise your hand. We have also learned how to count from 0 to 10 and three different 

colors (blue, white, red) in mandarin. We are beginning to work on body parts.  Try saying ears and mouth in Mandarin at home.

It was a busy week learning new songs about colors, shapes and Benjamin Bunny! “B” week has been full of fun activities! The boys are coloring and gluing! They were busy building birds, sorting bears by color and size, and gluing beans on bears! We even learned about our first nocturnal animal – bats. Ask your son if he can tell you something cool about this flying mammal!

Singing about Trixie Triangle helped us learn more about this shape. We noticed that building it with wood pieces was similar to our very first letter - an A has a triangle, too!

On Friday, we got to wave good-bye to our sixth grade buddies as they left for St. Louis on the big buses! It was an exciting time for the whole school!

We hope you have a great first weekend of fall!

We hope you all enjoyed our Labor Day holiday! The boys have done a great job learning so many new things this week. We are very proud of how well they are adjusting. We hope they have shared some songs with you that we have been singing!

We are using our thinking routines to make connections between our wood pieces and building shapes. Making our very own version of Mat Man was really fun, but making our “body boy” snack was the best!

We have “spied” circles all over our school and thought about many items that are shaped like a circle. Our mystery box was full of things that made us realize that circles are all around!

Please make plans to be at the PDS Jamboree tomorrow! It begins at 9:30 am and promises to be fun for the whole family. The PK boys are already excited about the face painting, bounce houses, and yummy food! This event is not to be missed!

We hope you have a nice weekend.
