October Newsletter

October has arrived and hopefully, cooler weather will come with it. I think we have all had enough of the 100 degree days!

Our first chapel begins for our 3 and 4 year olds this month, on Wednesday October 17thh at 9:15. If you arrive after 9:15, please bring your child to the chapel. Jill Varnell will be leading it again year. Please check your calendar for chapel dates.

October is crazy busy! Please be sure to mark your calendar with the following dates:

For the entire month we will be collecting for the Santa Rita Food Pantry in partnership with Austin New Church. Please encourage your child to pick out items for these families in need. They are in need of flour, sugar, cereal, macaroni and cheese, pasta and sauce, dry beans, black beans and snacks for children. Thank you for your generosity!

* On Wednesday and Thursday, October 9th and 10th , Alice Trappe will photograph the children individually.  Weather permitting, the pictures will be taken on the playground in a natural setting. You may want to dress your children in bright colors. Proofs should be back in a couple weeks.

* No school Monday October 14th for Columbus Day as we follow the AISD calendar.

* On Wednesday, October 30th , we will hold our annual Halloween Party for all children attending Faith Preschool and their younger siblings beginning at 10:00 a.m. and ending at 11:30 a.m. There will not be a regular school day and each child must be accompanied by an adult.  A sign up poster for help with the games will be posted in the 4 year old building in two weeks.   The games are very simple and your child can help or play the games around where you are working.  Thank you for your help, we couldn’t do it without you! The teachers will work booths, such as the moon walk, and the behind the scenes jobs for the fish pond and rock-o-bot.   Costumes are optional!
