Happy Thanksgiving!
Reminder that there is no school November 22-25th. Enjoy a week with family and know how GRATEFUL we are for YOU!
We are so excited to welcome the City of Allen Firefighters on November 29th and November 30th! The children will get to tour firetrucks and hear an explanation of the bunker gear! We are grateful to the city of Allen for making time to be at Playday!
Santa Clause is Coming to Playday!

We will have pictures with Santa on Wednesday, December 1st and Thursday, December 2nd!
We are thrilled to partner once again with Send Hope in Honduras, a very special ministry of FUMC Allen and one that focuses on the needs of children on the Moskito coast.

If you are able, please fill the bag that is coming home this week. Let's show our friends in Honduras our care for them and help them celebrate Christmas!

Come See Ms. Heather's Light Show Synchronized to Music!
1623 Pecan Creek Lane
Allen, Texas (near Taco Bueno)

The light show starts the day after Thanksgiving and continues through the end of the year (depending on weather)

Sunday:-Thursday 6:30-10:00 PM
Friday-Saturday 6:30-11:00 PM

Rain boots are super nice for puddles... but not so great for running in the gym! If you send your child in rain boots, please make sure they also have a pair of sneakers for our large motor times. Thanks so much!
Fall Weather!
Reminder: We go outside when we can! Please pack appropriate clothing for your children to enjoy our outdoor playtime. Please also send your child with close-toed shoes and an extra set of clothes. If your child wears rain boots, please send shoes to change into. Label, label, label everything!
A Word About Dresses: If your child is wearing a dress, please make sure she has shorts on as well. We have recess, large motor time, and yoga movement daily.
Please help us keep everyone safe by driving slowly while in our parking lot, especially during our carpool time and in the South parking lot. Share this information with all of your drivers. Thanks so much!
Share with your friends!!

There are limited spots still available in our 3s,4s,and 5s classes.

Tell your friends all about our safe place for children to play, to be in community with loving adults and other children, and to learn socially as well as academically. They can contact Trish Morehead at trishm@fumcallen.org or 972-396-7575. She would love to show them our beautiful school!
Outdoor Classroom Update:

We have had some more delays with permitting, but Child's Play is working hard to get us back on track! We are still waiting on our mud kitchen and will work on our sensory paths once we can fence in our area! We can't wait to share gardening, outdoor painting, weaving, sand play, and so much more!
A Note About Nutrition
Well balanced meals provide the food children need to grow, think, fight infection and fuel their bodies. Are you needing ideas for nutritious lunch choices for your child? Check out sample menus, information on food allergies, and choking hazards at www.fns.usda.gov/tn/myplate.
We have several severe nut allergies in our building. If your child is in a nut-free classroom, please do not send any food containing nuts for lunch or snack. Thanks for helping us keep Playday a fun and safe place for every child!
Please remember school starts at 9:00 each day. Thank you for being punctual... we love seeing all of our friends' smiling faces each morning!
Thank you for supporting us as we navigate the best way to keep us all safe and healthy! If you have any questions about our enhanced protocol, please contact the office.
