Children’s World Kindergarten News
Thank you to all the parents and family members who helped on the field trips
and at the party in October. We appreciate all your efforts, energy and company.
In the next few days you will be finding a progress report in your child’s cubby.
This is to give you an overview of your child’s days and a window into how the
teachers experience their progress. If you have questions about this report please
feel free to set up a time to talk with us for more detail.
Don’t worry, its good news!
Please note: best time to talk with teachers is 12:30-1:30.
(Wendy is at the school and available most days until 3:30.)
Autumn in Lithia Park
Thursday, November 10th (weather permitting) we will be traveling to Lithia
Park by city bus to observe and explore the last of the beautiful autumn colors.
Lithia Park is such a rich environment for our practice and education of honoring
The bus allows school groups to travel for free with the addition of five adults,
including teachers. Please let us know if you would like to join us. A sign up will
be on the bulletin board outside the classroom.
We will be traveling by city bus and will leave at 9:25.
Please dress for fall weather today!
Speaking of weather, the school is recommending that each child has a warm,
rain and snow proof coat, including hood, and rain shoes. Gloves and hats will
also be necessary as the temperature drops. Now that the rain has started, we
intend to be outside every day for at least 40 minutes. We appreciate your help
with having the proper “gear”. You are welcome to keep these items at school.
Pie Day Party!
We began a new tradition in the Kindergarten a few years ago, in honor of
Thanksgiving, with the sweetest part of the holiday.
A day of Pie! The children will be baking some delicious pies for their parents,
and families and would like to invite you to the classroom on Friday, November
18th to enjoy their diligent work with a pie brunch. The children will be
performing a few songs and taking a moment to speak about what they feel
thankful for. Please join us at 10:30.
All family members are welcome to come. Families are invited to bring their
favorite pie to share.
**If your pie contains nuts please be sure to indicate that for those with allergies.
See sign up if you would like to contribute.
Friday, November 11th in observance of Veterans Day.
*School will be closed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, November 24th,
25th and 26th for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Have a great Holiday!

Our dear friend Coley Glover, the preschool teacher from classroom 6, visits our
circle every Wednesday with her special way of teaching Spanish.
Coley attended the University of California at Riverside as a Regents’ Scholar
and graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Spanish, with one year of study at
the University of Madrid, Spain.
We continue Coley’s lessons all week with the kids and are so glad to share our
classroom with such a talented lady!
