October News and Calendar of Events

Can you believe school has been in session over a month already? We are now “falling” into the autumn season…one of our favorites here at preschool. Though the weather isn’t necessarily cooperating (20-30 degrees cooler would be much more on par with ‘fall’ weather!), all the classrooms are gearing up to study fall, harvest and all that this season brings. Within the next week or so, you will see our Outdoor Classroom transform into a festival of color with pumpkins, gourds, and more adorning the yard.

In the News:

Moonlight Magic: Moonlight Magic is right around the corner (Friday, October 14th). Please sign up by October 10th to reserve your child’s space (flyer attached). You can enjoy an evening out while the children enjoy “Moonlight” yard time (complete with flashlights or glow sticks!), pajama parties, pizza, then popcorn and a movie!

Speech Assessments: Justine Sherman & Associates will be conducting speech screenings on October 11th & 12th. These screenings help assess your child’s expressive and receptive language, as well as his/her articulation. These screenings are optional and cost $45. A permission form is required and will be sent out next week. Please discuss with your child’s teacher their recommendation for your child.

Parent-Teacher Conferences: Conferences will be held October 28th. Sign-ups will be available next week. This is a non-student day. Care will be provided for students during your scheduled conference time. Please make every effort to attend these conferences as this is your opportunity to talk with the teachers one-on-one and your teacher will share with you your child’s progress thus far.

Observation Days: PCS offers several formal Observation Days where prospective parents can listen to a short message from Dr. Gray and then tour the campuses. If you are interested in PCS TK or Kindergarten, this is a great opportunity for you to see the school in action. Also, if you have friends who would enjoy PCS, please mention our Observation Days to them! To sign up, visit http://www.pasadenachristian.org/admissions/observationdayres.cfm

Dates available: Thursday October 6, November 3, November 17, December 1, and January 12
