Purple Room Newsletter



It’s getting chilly outside!  Make sure to send in hats, coats, and gloves as we do go outside if the real feel temperature is 25 degrees or higher.

October Learning

In October, we learned letters in our name.  We also worked on writing using our journals and other sources.  We had fun with our pumpkins, and we weighed them, planted pumpkin seeds, watched them grow, and talked about our observations as they grew.

November Learning

In November, we will be focusing on family as the theme.  We will be recognizing who lives in a family, and will be doing letter recognition and hands-on activities.

*Soiled clothes are kept in a grocery bag in a purple tub above the cubbies.

*We strive to be a peanut free zone, so please do not bring any peanut products into the building.

*For the safety of your child, please bring him or her in tennis shoes.  If they attend school in something else, they will only be allowed to play on the patio during recess.

*Parent information will be stored in the top cubby, and the children’s coats will go in the bottom section of the cubby.

*Check your e-mail for any updates on your child’s progress, newsletters, or news in general.
