Cold and Flu Season

Unfortunately, it’s that time of the year. Please remember to keep your child home if they are sick. We need to keep our school germ-free and keep our children and teachers healthy.

 

School Pictures

Brenda Russett of Candid On Campus Photography will be taking class and individual color photos beginning the week of October 16th.  Look for the schedule outside your child’s classroom.

 

Parent Interviews

Throughout the weeks of October each class will have a Parent Interview Day.  This brief, initial conference time is your opportunity to share information about your child with the teacher.  Check your classroom Parent Boards for date and times.

 

It’s Pumpkin Time

Honey Tree will have its own Pumpkin Patch.  Thanks to all the teachers for making sure 150 pumpkins make it to our Holy Trinity grass!   Each preschooler and kindergartener will “pick” a pumpkin.

the parking lot. 

 

Church Happenings

All creatures great and small and their owners, are welcome to attend the Blessing of the Animals at 4:30pm on Sunday, October 22nd.   All are invited to bring pets live or stuffed animals.  Any live animal needs to be safely leashed or enclosed in their “homes” to the patio.  Immediately following the blessing we will have a bbq dinner.  Please bring a side or dessert to share.
