Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. If you need to brush up on your art appreciation, you too can watch the video that your children watched.
HALLOWEEN TREATS- On Thursday, October 26th – Pre-K and KG-1 classes will be trick or treating from class to class. As part of the American Halloween tradition, the children will receive something when they knock on the door and say, “Trick or Treat!” We are trying to encourage less chocolate and candy and MORE small treats (pencils, erasers, rings, stickers, plastic jewelry, tattoos, rubber balls, small toy cars, etc). Daiso and The Party Store have a lot of fun treats like this. We would also like to encourage healthy snacks – fruit snacks, raisins, pretzels, breakfast bars, etc. In order for us to have this special celebration we will need each child to bring in individualized treats for at least 30 children. Please DO NOT send any small hard candies or jelly cups (heart candies, mints, etc.) as they pose a choking hazard. We have several children who have severe allergies to nuts so please do not send any products that contain nuts. The children will not be eating the candy at school so you will have a chance to check through it before your child eats it. We are encouraging them to share what they receive at school with their families.
If you have not sent in yet please send in this week.
There will be a parade at 8:05am that your child will walk in. You can stand outside on the big playground. To make this easier on your child please do not stop and allow the line to move. If you think your child will be upset by seeing you you might want to wait for the pictures that we will post on the blog.
October 31st is Orange Day, please have your child wear something orange to school that day.
