This is your mid-month update:  the place where you'll find out everything that is happening the rest of this month, and where you can get a sneak peek at what's coming up in November!  The pumpkins have arrived, and the patch has sprung up!  Remember that the patch hours are available on the Google calendar on the SCS website.  Hope you will all get to enjoy it!

 With joy,

 Erica Holloway

SCS Pumpkin Days:  October 19-20
Each class will make a special visit to the pumpkin patch for stories, songs, games and a patch tour.   Please sign up to help with those on the classroom bulletin boards.  Each class will also need a snack helper and a pumpkin carver, along with donations of icing and sprinkles.  

Parents and grandparents are welcome to join us during the patch visit.  ALL non-staff members must have a volunteer screening on file in the SCS office!  
Sunday, October 23 from 3-5 pm

Join Sanlando for a day of family fun:

  • Bounce Houses
  • Games
  • Face Painting
  • Trunk-or-Treat

Wear a family-friendly costume and enjoy our pumpkin patch!  Bring a plastic jar of peanut butter or jelly for the Sharing Center food pantry.

Decorate a Trunk at Fall Festival on October 23!
Our goal is to have 30 cars (last year we had 23).  Choose a family-friendly theme (sports, movies, favorite kids' characters) and email Brianne Ortt to sign up!  She has prizes!
Reminder:  NO Family Chapel!
We will not have Family Chapel in October, since Erica will be recuperating from surgery.  

Please join us for our next Family Chapel on Tuesday, November 15 at 9 am!

Details will be in your November newsletter.

Office Updates
Ms. Erica will be out for a few weeks for a surgical procedure. 
Please CALL the SCS office at 407-339-1172 or email Sharon or Carolyn.  

DO NOT email Erica - she will not have access to emails, and they will sit unread!  

While she is out, Ms. Carolyn and Ms. Sharon will be able to take care of everything you need from the office, and your children's teachers will handle all concerns regarding your children.  Thank you to those amazing staff members for keeping the school running while the director is recovering!
