Fall and Pumpkins

Last month, we learned about the story of Noah and about Farms. The Gilbert Fire Fighters came to visit and taught us about bike safety, pool safety and what to do in the case of a fire! We are so thankful for their service! This month we'll be getting ready for the Fall Festival and learning all about pumpkins! Look for information about pumpkin experiments that students will do in class in your classroom newsletters! If you're willing to donate a pumpkin to your child's class, please click on this link and sign up,thank you!
 
Thank you for meeting with the teachers for conferences! We are partners in your child's education and this time is so important for getting one on one time with your child's teacher.

PreK parents, it's time to start looking at schools for your child. Kindergarten registration starts in January for some schools. As a staff, we have a lot of different experiences with schools in the Gilbert/Chandler/Mesa area. If we can help in any way, please let us know.
