Keeping Hydrated
When you sign up for snack, we would prefer giving the children water instead of juice. Some children bring in a reusable water bottle, they keep them in their cubby so they may drink whenever they like. If you would like to do this, please label the bottle with your child’s name. Please save the juice for special occasions. 

NOVEMBER HOLIDAYS                                

School will be closed on Friday, November 10 due to Veteran’s Day. Honey Tree will also be closed on Monday, November 20th thru Friday, November 24th for Thanksgiving Recess.


Laura Horrigan for coordinating our helpers and to Leah Sparkes, Kristen Fry, Kelley Caballeros, Melinda Mark, Susan Stevenson, Erika Howell, and Meghan Waldron for making it special.


There will be no lunch bunch at this time. We will continue to revisit this as the year goes on.


Not sure about a date or what’s happening here at Honey Tree? Check our Website, for our calendar of events. We also post this newsletter under “Communication.”


The faculty would like to thank all the parents of our Honey Tree children for sharing them with us.   We feel blessed with the opportunity to spend the year with them and to watch them grow.

Remember November 5th set your clocks back at 2:00 A.M.

Planning Ahead for Christmas 

Our nighttime program is for our PreK, TK, and Kindergartners. Last year the Church was very crowded and not enough seats for everyone, this year we will have two programs. The first one at 5:00 will be Mrs. Randolph’s three day afternoon, Mrs. Wright’s three day class, and Mrs. Mason’s three day extended class. The second program at 6:00 will be Mrs. Mason’s two day extended, Mrs. Randolph’s five day morning, and Mrs. Riedel’s TK/Kindergarten class.  After the program everyone is invited to the Fellowship Hall for cookies and hot chocolate.


On Sunday, November 12 at 4:30 PM, we will have the opportunity to gather for a Harvest Fiesta Dinner in order to celebrate the ministry we have done together in the past year and look ahead to how we might support it in the coming year. The evening will include a taco meal, games, and fellowship. There will be activities for children and part of the time will include a call to renew our pledges of time and finances for the year 2018.

Please RSVP to Jennifer in the church office at 805 492-1234 or to let us know you are coming. Hope to see you there!

Fair Trade

November 19 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM on the patio is the date for this year’s sale. November is a fun time to start thinking about Christmas and gifts. You have time to think about what gifts, why you want to give a gift, and how you are going to do it. The Fair Trade Christmas Sale at Holy Trinity is such a good way to continue or start your Christmas shopping.

HumanKind, a fair trade boutique in San Luis Obispo, will set up tables full of nativities from around the world, Christmas decorations, jewelry, metal wall art, woven and leather bags, candles, soaps, scarves, hats, mittens, socks, toys, ornaments, baskets, and more. All purchases supporting artisans who will get a guaranteed fair wage and social premiums for their community.
