October is done. We had some beautiful days, didn’t we? The trees are turning brilliant colors. There is a red tree on Lake at the park that I have been watching. The month ended with one of my favorite holidays – Hallow-een. Love to see the children get dressed up. They are just pre-cious and they are so excited. But the holiday is not just for children. We, adults like to dress up, too!
October brought us two annual events: The Pie Sale and the Creative Craft Bazaar. I hope everyone had a chance to order some pies. These are wonderful pies at a good price plus CAWS receives the profits. Also, the pies are easy to take to family gatherings and office parties. The pies will arrive on November 19 and can be picked up from 4:00 – 5:30 just in time for Thanksgiving.
Also, CAWS had it’s 4th Creative Craft Bazaar. It started out slow with the cool temperature and rain but we did better after the weather cleared. I want to thank those who donated baked goods to CAWS. Also, I would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time to make the bazaar a success. We
appreciate your support and thanks does not seem to be enough. We could not have done it without you.
In addition, October gave us – School pictures, Chapel Time on Wednesdays, work done to the playground and Halloween celebrations.
As November begins, we will prepare for Thanksgiving and the pies orders to arrive. We will celebrate Fall, harvest time and the children will learn about everything that pertains to the changing of the seasons. Also, we will have parent confer-ence during the third week of the month to inform parents how their child is doing.
The children and the teachers will begin practicing their songs and finger plays for CAWS’ Annual Christmas Gathering. It will be Thursday, December 12 at 7:00pm. Everyone is invited to hear the children, have cookies and punch afterward, and see Jolly Ol’ Saint Nicholas. Come join the festivities. So mark your calendar.
I hope you have a great month and Thanksgiving.
