It's October already, can you believe it?! This is going to be a fun month with Halloween coming up! We have a few birthdays to also help make this month even more fun. Emma and Aubrey D. are turning the big ONE on the 10th and Keegan is turning one on the 3rd!
On Halloween, which is a friday this year, we are having our annual trick-or-treating event around the center. All the children can come dressed up in their Halloween costumes and we go room to room picking up fun snacks! This happens at 3:00 p.m. and you are definitely welcome to join us. We are also going to have a small party right after trick-or-treating. There will be a sign-up sheet at the door for snacks. You do not have to send your child dressed up in their costume, we are happy to put them in it after breakfast and take them out of it so they don't get messy or too hot.
Like every year, our fundraising event, The Festival of Trees is coming up. This is our event to help raise funds for our center and consists of an evening of auctions and food. The classrooms and families play a big part in this as each classroom does their own raffle basket. The money raised in the raffle goes directly back into the classrooms and they use it to buy new toys or materials. We will let you know the theme of our basket soon and you can help by donating items to it to make it the best!
One last reminder is that we are having pictures taken on Tuesday, October 7th at 9:00 a.m. These are just individual pictures and if you choose to order some, there will be an order form for you to fill out and return up front.
