Preschoolers Sing at Trinity

Sunday, October 27

Preschool students are invited to sing in church at Trinity on Sunday, October 27th at 9:00 am. We will meet in our classroom at 8:45 am and walk down to the sanctuary to sing near the beginning of the service. No specific clothing is required (school or church attire is appropriate). After singing I will help your child as needed to get reunited with you. We hope you can stay for the entire church service, but know sometimes that is not possible. Following the Divine Service we have refreshments followed by Sunday School for adults and children. Kristin Alstadt (Katrina ‘s mom from the Red class) is our Preschool Sunday school teacher. We hope you can join us that morning.

Weather Reminders

As the weather starts to get colder, please remember to send appropriate outdoor attire for your student. Hats, gloves, and a warm jacket are a must.

Sweet Reformation Party

Please no Halloween Costumes at school. On Wednesday, October 30th and Thursday, October 31st we will instead be having a fun Sweet Reformation day at school. We will create some masks, act out Martin Luther’s role in the Reformation and do some Candy Corn activities. No extra treats or help is needed that day. School will be furnishing the treats for this activity.

Fireman Safety Visit

All classes will have a special visit from a Fireman next week either on Monday or Tuesday, depending on the class. This is a great time to join us in the classroom especially if you are nervous about how your child will react to a fireman in full gear. First they will show the clothing and gear. Second they will put it on. We will also get a chance to view the fire truck.  In the past these have been EXCELLENT presentations and as always parents and/or other guests are welcome.

Birthday Celebrations

Notes went home with the date for your child’s classroom birthday celebration and treat ideas. There is also a note within the information for creating a “letter box or poster” and the letter I choose for your child to use. I tacked up my letter box in the entryway of the school to give you an idea. The date of your child’s classroom birthday celebration is also noted on our Google calendar:

Picture Days: Thursday, Sept. 19th & Friday, Sept. 20th

Picture order forms will be sent home with your child soon. Heather Miller, a former preschool parent, will be taking our school photos. Individual and/or class pictures will be available for purchase.

Apple Week: Sept. 30-Oct. 4

Please have your child to bring in 1 apple any day that week and we will use the apples for activities throughout the week. I hope to have a big crop of them too so we can do picking (I will hide them in the play yard), washing, peeling and chopping. We will make applesauce, dehydrated apples and will also use some in some art projects.

Enrolled students and their parents are invited and encouraged to attend our Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, August 14th between 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
