Preschool News: October 2019

Posted by Lee Ann Roeder on Oct 03, 2019

The preschool would like to thank the Congregational Life Committee, especially Carol and Dick Dahoney, and all the other members of the congregation who helped us celebrate our 40th Anniversary with such an AMAZING event! We had so many preschool families come and enjoy the day at Pilgrim. I heard so many wonderful comments and all seemed very grateful and appreciative to be invited to this fun day of fellowship. It was fun seeing a few staff members from the past as well. We are extremely grateful and sincerely appreciative for all your hard work! THANK YOU!

October was a fun and busy month at Pilgrim Lutheran Preschool! We have been able to have lots of outside play time on our playground with many fun activities happening inside as well. After our visit to the fire station next door in September, we practiced the fire safety lessons we learned and had a fire drill. We learned about how to, "Get Out and Stay Out!" and went as quickly and quietly as we could to our "safe meeting place" outside. The 4s classes also were visited by a police officer during our unit on community helpers. The children had fun and learned a lot, but mostly, "The best person to keep me safe is ME" by making smart choices.

We had school photos in October, which always are very busy days for the teachers! We also had students from Butler University's College of Communications conduct free speech and hearing screenings for children in the 3s, 4s and 5s classes. The screenings help to identify children at risk for possible communication delay or hearing loss. It was a wonderful opportunity for our parents. 

Many classes have had apple activities in October...art projects, apple tasting, voting, sorting, and even making apple sauce...the preschool has smelled wonderful! The 3s, 4s and 5s classes will end the month with fall fun and Halloween parties. I'm sure there will be lots of princesses and super heroes at school! 

Feel free to follow Pilgrim Lutheran Preschool on Facebook to see some of the fun things we have been doing! Please keep our children and their families, and our preschool staff, in your prayers as we continue through the year. Thank you!
