Head of School Newsletter: October

PFM Families,

The Fall season brings us cooler weather, leaves changing their colors, and this year, OUR NEW PLAYGROUND!!! We are so excited for our playground remodel and cannot wait for the children to enjoy it each and every day.  We hope to see you all at the ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, October 13, at 10:30am.

This month the toddler room welcomes Lars and Nathaniel from the infant room!  These guys are ready to join their older buddies to see what toddlerhood is all about. North Preschool welcomed Cedric Jacob and Aarav Kulkarni in mid-September and Freya Straume will join South Preschool in mid-October. The children are showing great skills in sharing and forming friendships while at school and have been so nice to their old and new friends.

School photos are on Wednesday, October 3, so be sure to have your child photo-ready when you arrive!  Toddler parents, please join us for Toddler Information Night on Thursday, October 4, from 5:00 to 6:00 pm in the toddler room. This is a good chance to get together to meet other toddler families, discuss “all things toddler,” learn more how the toddler classroom works, and have your questions answered.  Home visits begin in October for infants, toddlers and preschoolers as well. We will be sharing more information with you about this soon.

Halloween is a FUN time at Pacific First Montessori and we encourage all children to come dressed up that day (with extra clothes to change into). We will parade around the building and preschoolers will sing songs for parents at 9:30am on the second level by American Eagle Outfitters. You won’t want to miss this! We also have a very special field trip planned for preschoolers on Thursday, October 25. Preschoolers will take a yellow school bus to the pumpkin farm! This is always a favorite for the children and we hope you can join us! Also, prospective Kindergarten parents should join us at PFM on October 23 for Kindergarten Information Night. We will have a Kindergarten Transition Specialist here to answer all of your questions.

Have a wonderful month everyone!
