Notes from the Preschool Room

We have had a great first month of preschool! The class has been busy getting to know one another, learning the classroom routine, and making new friends!  October will be another very exciting month for our class.  We have been planning many fun and educational activities!

On Monday, October 10th, the Brighton Fire Department will be coming to our school to teach the children about Fire Safety and Prevention. The children will get to meet some real firefighters and take a look inside a big fire truck!

On Wednesday, October 12th, we will be taking a field trip to Gro-Moore Farm. We will leave Fisher at 9:15am that day. Please be sure to drop your child off at school by 8:45am. We will also need you to leave a car seat with buckles at the school for your child to ride in on the bus. If you're interested in joining us, we have space for a few parent volunteers. Please see either myself or Mrs. Ross if you’d like to come along!

We will end the month by Trick-or-Treating in the St. John Fisher College offices on Friday, October 28th. Please have your child wear his/her Halloween costume to school that day because we are planning on leaving our classroom by 9:30am. We would also appreciate if you could dress your child in comfortable walking shoes and do not bring any props that may go with your child's costume.

I have enjoyed getting to know all of you over the past month. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Mrs. O.
