Dear Barlina House Families:
October is going to be a busy month! We will start with our field trip to The Nature Center/Veteran Acres and end with our Halloween Celebrations. We have our first day off of school on Monday, October 14. The 4-year old’s will be going to Stade’s Farm & Market on Friday, October 18. On Wednesday, October 23 and Thursday, October 24, we get to carve pumpkins with our Dad or a special person. All these dates are on the school calendar, please check it out.
We are introducing a new alphabet experience at Barlina. We will all be using a new curriculum when teaching the alphabet. It is a multi-sensory approach to understanding letters and sounds. A flyer will sent home shortly explaining our curriculum.
The children are all doing fantastic. Arrival and dismissal are working great. Just a quick reminder about dismissal. We dismiss the children at Noon. If we have too many parents coming early to school, the line starts to become long very early. We would like you to get at school around 11:50 AM. This way, the children have more time to play outside, and we do not have to dismiss early. Thanks for your understanding and for working with us as we learn everyone’s car/license plates.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns. Thank you again for allowing us to be part of your children’s life
Donna MacCrindle, Barlina House Director
