November 2013 newsletter format

  1. 1. November 2013 Newsletter November is here and we have a busy month preparing for our annual Thanksgiving lunch. Please mark your calendars for November 26th so you can attend as the children make the entire lunch for our KELC families on this day. In addition we also have conferences this month and into December. A sign-up sheet will be emailed out shortly and you can let your child’s teachers or myself know what dates and times work best for you. In October we raised $800 from our month long raffle. Thank you for your support. This money was used to extend the tile in the classrooms. Hopefully, you have noticed the improvements and like them as much as we do. We could not have done it without your support. Thank you. If you have not already given me proof of insurance or that your child has had their flu shot I need this information as soon as possible, and no later than December 1, 2013.

  2. 2. Bird Tweets: October was awesome! The children loved picking apples at Apple Hill! We hope everyone enjoyed eating them or making something yummy with them. The children have really been interested in our tree study! We went on a hunt for the buckeye trees we have here at Kendal with one of our favorite grandfriends, Donna. We also had a great time on our first of many ELI trips to the Cleveland Natural History Museum. We learned all about preventing forest fires with Smokey the Bear and recycling with Woodsy Owl. We also got to explore the dinosaur exhibit and look at the live animals they have. November is going to be just as great as we finish up our tree study and talk about Thanksgiving. We will be busy preparing special soup and desserts for our Thanksgiving Luncheon on Tuesday, November 26th. We will also be visiting the Cleveland Museum of art and learn about African art. A big “Thank you” to Ann Howell, Charlie’s mom, for coming and talking with the children about the Yoruba kingdom in Nigeria. She talked about a piece of art they will see at the museum, a king’s crown. Have a great month! Giraffe Whistles: As always, the giraffes have had another busy month, in October we had 2 field trips: the first was to Apple Hill and the second to the Museum of Natural History. The children learned about taking care of our earth and how to prevent forest fires. Woodsy owl and Smokey the Bear were there to talk to the children. Our current study is learning about trees and who takes care of them. Our next ELI field trip will be on the 13th to the Art Museum and we will be learning about Africa. Prior to these trips, we get a big tub of items the children can explore. The kids are having an awesome time playing the different musical instruments, listening to African music, and wearing the multicultural clothing that has been provided. Just a reminder, as the weather is getting colder outside, please make sure that your child has the appropriate clothing for outdoor play as we do go out every day weather permitting. Have a great November, Karen and Julie
