OCTOBER NEWS

It’s hard to believe that we are starting our second month of school.  All of the children have settled nicely into their classroom routines.  We have loved all of the time we have been able to spend out on the playground, and are now also glad for the cooler fall weather.  Please remember that our classrooms will have windows open as long as possible (weather permitting), so we suggest that you dress your child in layers.  October is a very busy month for all the classes, so please read this newsletter and your class newsletters carefully for information on EPS Picture Days, the Fall Parent Coffee, Halloween Celebrations, and Parent/Teacher Progress Conferences in November.  As always, if you have questions, concerns or are not sure about something, please feel free to call, or send an email to mupfold@chslf.org.

Karen & Julia Rodgers Photography will be taking our individual school photos on October 22nd and 23rd. Thursday will be for the Pre-K Class, and Friday will be for The Threes Class.  We hope your child can be here on his/her photo day. Picture envelopes will be sent home just prior to the event.

This year EPS Room Parents will be hosting an in-person all school coffee on Friday, October 9th starting at 9:00 am in Mary’s Garden. Access to Mary’s Garden is via Church Road. This is a BYOC (bring your own coffee) event with individually wrapped treats available. Come and join us for a socially distanced gathering and a chance to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. Masks are required.

We ask that children not wear their costumes to school before or on Halloween. This avoids both the potential for frightening other preschool children and damaging costumes prior to the “big day”.  Low-key and fun special projects and games are being planned by your child’s classroom teacher. Snacks will be provided by the preschool due to allergy restrictions.

Like many events this year, our Parent/Teacher Fall Conferences will be a little different.  Each classroom teacher will be sending home a progress report prior to your child’s conference. Conferences will then be held via Zoom on Thursday, November 5th and Friday, November 6th. Fall Conference sign-up sheets will be posted by the daily sign-in/out sheet on Monday, October 26th. Please note that school will not be in session during conferences.
