November News We have been busy as squirrels this month! When it has not been raining, we explored outside on a nature walk looking for acorns, leaf types, signs of Fall, and we found a few squirrel nests at the top of the trees at the bottom of our playground. The letters Ee, Ff, and Gg, and the numbers 5 and 6 will be introduced. We are continuing self-portraits for our portfolio work. The children have made great progress from September, October, and November. Families, friends, and food are a few topics that we will be discussing. Thank you for signing up for food or supply donations for our two Halloween parties. The children enjoyed a special snack and getting to see each other’s costumes or shirts. Our Trunk or Treat was a success again! It was nice to see new families in our school community attend and have a fun time. I am happy to announce that I am officially licensed now as Mad Brook Educational Park. I have been working to obtain my own license for sometime, and now it is official. I will be sending out a parent release form for you to sign to allow all the children's records to be transferred from Mad Brook Academy to Mad Brook Educational Park. The school, teachers, and philosophy will stay the same. Please continue to follow us on Facebook, website, and Instagram. Any questions, please ask me. The last book orders are due Friday, November, 8. We will have one more chance to order before Christmas.
