This month we are excited to kick off our study and investigative approach to learning with the Creative
Curriculum. We are excited to see the changes in our room and also to welcome new friends to our classrooms.
Our teachers will also start using the online assessment piece to our curriculum this month as many new things
are in the works for this new school year. I look forward to your feedback about our classrooms, curriculum, and
assessment piece this school year. ~Jeni Hoover, KELC Director

In August the children really enjoyed our two fieldtrips. First
was to the Memphis Kiddie Park. The children loved riding all the rides
that were just their size. The roller coaster was a big hit and so was the
merry-go-round. The children also loved seeing all the animals at the
Fair. It was hot but they were all troopers. They got to pet a lot of the
different animals. We enjoyed a picnic lunch under the pavilion topped
off with cotton candy for dessert.
September brings a lot of changes for the start of a new school
year. First we said goodbye to all of our kindergartners. Then we are
welcoming many friends that came back after being gone for the
summer. Welcome back Phoebe and Avery! We are also welcoming
Amir, Hazel, and Mason to the Giraffe group. Then we want to welcome
Amira and Timothy to Kendal and the Giraffe group. We are going to be
very busy this month. We will be focusing on getting everyone
acclimated into the classroom and introducing them to the new areas in
the room. We will also begin using the Creative Curriculum in the
We look forward to another successful school year.
Have a great month,

Wow, September is here! It is the start of a new school year
already! We said goodbye to all of our kindergarteners and hello to a
few new friends these last couple of weeks. Welcome Gregory,
Takeshi, William, and Charlie to the Bird group. We also have some
friends coming back after being gone for the summer. Welcome back
Josh, Brooklyn, and Layla.
The children had a blast at Memphis Kiddie Park and at the
Fair. At the Kiddie Park the children loved riding the rides over and
over. At the Fair they loved seeing all the animals. They even got to
pet quite a few of them.
With all the changes that have gone on this summer we are
going to concentrate on introducing the children to the new look of the
classroom as well as to all our new friends. We are also starting the
implementation of our new curriculum. September is certainly going
to be busy!
Have a great month!
