Hello Neighborhood Families,
We hope that everyone had a safe and happy Halloween! It certainly was a busy week here as children worked on Halloween related projects and activities of all kinds! We had unique and silly pumpkins, oozy gooey science experiments, witches, hats, and brooms, and even a large haunted house made from recycled materials.
All of our classes have worked together to create a set of guidelines and rules for our outdoor space. As this project was meant to be completely child-centered, each and every rule listed is a direct quote from a child. We would love for you to take the time to review the guidelines. We were impressed and we think you will be too! There are copies at the front table in the lobby.
Bob from Kidstock will be working on a new open house video for us as our current video is wonderful but quite outdated! Please be on the lookout for a consent form that will be sent home this week. As always, pop into the office or call with any questions.
Season of Giving
The month of November kicks off our annual Season of Giving. Each year the Neighborhood Cooperative donates Thanksgiving baskets to families in need through the Woburn Council for Social Concern. This is a fantastic way to introduce young children to giving as they often work on cards or centerpieces to add to the baskets. In mid November and early December we will be celebrating our Giving Tree and we will gather books and toys to donate to Winchester Hospital. More information on these activities to follow in the coming weeks.
Officer Pacheco came to visit last week to speak to the children about Halloween safety. Jackie Dee offered him a treat!
