October 2018

Dear Parents,

October has arrived and although it still feels like summer, I’m sure some cooler temperatures are on their way. The children are doing wonderfully and are settling into their classroom routines. It’s so nice to see their happy, smiling faces each day.

It was so nice to see everyone at our Fall Family Picnic & Book Fair. Thanks so much for coming. It was a beautiful day and the pony and animals were a big hit. I’ll be sure to book them for next year.

October is looking to be a busy month. It is “Fire Safety Month” and we’re looking forward to our annual visit from the Eastchester Fire Department. Their visits are scheduled for Monday, Oct. 22 nd & Tuesday, Oct. 23 rd and will be here for both the AM and PM classes. We’re also expecting our annual visit from Joanne from Main Street Pediatric Dental located in Tuckahoe. Joanne teaches the children how to brush their teeth and sends home with each child a special bag containing all the things they’ll need to take great care of their teeth. Joanne will be coming to Creative Playtime on Monday, Oct. 29 th and Tuesday, Oct. 30 th .

A fun event that we always look forward to is coming up this month; it’s our annual Halloween Parade. It takes place on Wednesday Oct. 31 st and I block off Alida St. from Grand Blvd to Lee Ave. We all parade together down the street and then head over to Pastor Stephanie’s front yard for some healthy treats and refreshments. For the AM children, the parade will take place at 9:15am and for the PM children it will begin at 12:30. Please have your children arrive in their costumes (please no scary ones) and once the parade is over, you can change them into their regular clothes. Children who don’t attend school on Wednesdays are still welcome to take part in the parade. Just simply meet us outside on the grass at 9:15 (morning children) and at 12:30 (afternoon children).

I’m very excited to announce our first “Pajama Night.” It will take place on Friday, Oct. 19 th from 6:00-9:00pm upstairs in the Social Hall. It’s a mini-fundraiser and will be staffed with Creative Playtime teachers and myself. The children can come in their pj’s and we’ll be showing a children’s movie and giving them dinner (pasta & meatballs: you’re welcome to bring something else if your child would prefer that). Siblings are welcome to come. We’ll take a maximum of 20 children and would need a minimum of 8. The cost is $25 per child ($10 for each additional sibling). Drop your children off at 6:00, go out for a nice dinner, maybe get together with some other CP parents, go shopping, or just get some rest. Our Pajama Nights are planned monthly, and always on Fridays, with the next one coming up on Friday, Nov. 30 th . They’ll be one sign-up form posted on the bulletin board outside my office. We’re really excited about it. Let me know if you have any questions.
