October is here, and we are getting busier each week in 2D! 

Thank you to all of those who helped us with our Johnny Appleseed celebration on Wednesday!  We had a great time making, smelling, and finally tasting the apple butter on crackers, taste testing different kinds of apples and voting on our favorites, and watching Johnny Appleseed on Discovery Streaming while making an “All Kinds of Apples” booklet to take home!

Our room mothers have been terrific in getting information to you each week.  I hope that this communication has been helpful.  Thank you to all who have and continue to sign up to volunteer in art class, science lab, and math centers, and as parent readers.  The children and I love when our moms and dads can come in to be with us during the school day.

CoGat testing begins on Monday.  Please be sure that your child has a good night’s sleep, a healthy breakfast, and is on time to school each day.  Testing will be Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings, and there will be no homework assigned on those nights.

Our first parent sacramental meeting is coming up for those whose children will be receiving the sacraments this year.  It is Tuesday, October 9 at 6:00pm in the Fallon Center.  Children do not attend these meetings.

Permission slips went home on Tuesday for our field trip to Hill Ridge Farms in Youngsville, NC.  We are hoping for a beautiful fall day to enjoy Playland, a train ride around the farm, and a hayride to the pumpkin patch where we’ll pick out a pumpkin to bring home!  The children will wear their PE uniforms, and bring a disposable bag lunch and drink to enjoy at the farm.  Thanks to HASA, there is no cost for this field trip.

Thank you for all that you do for us in 2D! 

Have a wonderful long weekend.
