“Finally be strong in the Lord in the strength of His might.” Ephesians 6:10


Monthly T
heme

Who’s ready for October? We are! This month is all about Careers and Community Helpers. We will be learning all about the different jobs people do in our community. October is Fire Prevention month and we will be learning about how to prepare and stay safe. We will be celebrating Fire Prevention day on October 9th.

Our letters this month are: G, H, I, our numbers are: 4 for Alligators – Dolphins and 7 & 8 for Pelicans – Seagulls. The shape is: triangle and our color is: orange.  

For our Bible theme this month, we will be focusing on Strength and Samson, who despite having obstacles; He overcame them with strength from the Lord.

 

Camp News       

Parents, please notify the office on days your child will NOT be riding the bus.

If your child has been sent home sick from Elementary School, please refrain from sending your child to after school that day. They are not to return for 24 hours without symptoms. Remember to label all backpacks with your child’s first and last name. Do not allow your child to bring in personal toys from home. Camp Lowcountry Day is not responsible for items brought from home. If your child wears a phone/smart watch on their arm, it will be kept in the front office for you to pick-up. All after schoolers need to keep a full change of clothes in their backpack or cubby.

Ms. Kim’s Notes

The air is crisp and the chili’s on the stove which can only mean one thing, it’s officially fall y’all! This year’s Fall Festival theme will be “Pet Shop” and will be held on Friday, October 25th. Think cats, dogs, fish, ferrets, things you would find in a pet store. See the office for apporoved costume suggestions! Make sure that the costume is kid friendly; No masks, swords, guns, etc. Keep in mind we are a Christian school and we would love to celebrate fall without any scary decorations or costumes. Your child may also wear regular clothing on this day. Keep an eye out for Party Sign-Up sheets; they will be posted by each classroom door! 

 

Parent Reminders

*Scott Moody Photography will be coming for our annual school pictures! More details soon to come. See postings soon!

*It is important that shoes fit properly to help ensure safe play. Crocs, sandals with NO back strap & loose fitting shoes are NOT appropriate for little feet during school hours.

* We live in the Glorious Lowcountry, but the biting insects like it as much as we do. Remember to apply your bug spray and sunscreen at home in the morning before leaving for school. We are no longer reapplying in the afternoon without a Doctor’s Note.

*There is a 3 minute parking time limit for drop off and pickup under the portechere. No parking in the fire pass lane. If your child needs changing for after school activities such as dance, soccer, football, cheerleading, karate, etc. you must come in and change your child yourself. Our staff cannot do one-on-one changes during the busy afternoon bus drop-off. Please note- do not call the office to have your child wait up front for quick pick-up, you must come in and sign your children out and pick them up from the classroom with their daily papers.

*If you take extended time to pick-up multiple children, or spend time visiting or taking care of your account at the office window, I advise you to park in the parking lot as to not backup traffic in our portechere.

*A child may not be in underwear until they are 30 days accident free, documented by the preschool. Potty charts are noted daily. Also, please check your child’s cubbies daily for soiled clothes and notes for supplies needed.

 

Serving Christ,

Ms. Kim
