HALLOWEEN PARADE

Happy Halloween! We are planning on having a modified version of our annual Halloween parade on Friday, October 30th. Because the parade will start at 9:00am, we ask that students come to school already dressed in their costumes.

There will be a virtual option and an on-campus option for parents and relatives to watch our on-campus elementary kiddos parade in their costumes. To watch our parade from home, parents will be sent a link to a YouTube live streaming session. Students will be recorded as they pass by the office, one class at a time, and you’ll be able to see them in all their Halloween splendor!

For those who would like to attend the parade for their on-campus children, they should bring camping chairs or blankets and set them up along the outside of either building (see map below—the yellow dots indicate where families can sit).

Everyone watching the parade on campus needs to be wearing a mask and should position themselves as close to the building as possible to allow our students to parade on the sidewalks surrounding the schools. Families should also allow six feet between them and neighboring families.

So that the ENTIRE school can see our e-learners in their costumes, we ask parents to take pictures of their children and send them to Angelee Spader (aspader@questac.org) no later than Thursday, Oct. 29th. We will make a video compilation of these pictures and share it with all our students.

Make New Friends

Make new friends,

but keep the old.

One is silver,

the other is gold.

A circle is round

it has no end.

That’s how long,

I will be your friend.

We just finished off the best week talking about FRIENDSHIP! We learned how to say FRIENDS in sign language and read a fun FABLE about what you may think would be unlikely friends. The Lion and the Mouse. When our Fun Friday came around we decided to capture this fun week focusing on friends with a Directive Drawing of a Lion.

Other important lessons we learned last week were:

LETTER: M

SOUND: /mmmmm/

HIGH FREQUENCY WORD: the (we previously have been focusing on I and can)

We are still working on Tracing the letters of the alphabet and numbers up to 20

Fun Fact …. When walking in from recess we were counting and friend near me got clear up to 100 by the time we got into the building!! Next time you are out on a walk with your kindergartener challenge them to count for you!!
