Dear Parents,

We have two new students in our classroom! Please welcome Tiya Rawal and Gabriella Meeks. We are so delighted that they have joined our classroom community.

The kindergarten students are enjoying their experiment on what plants need to survive. Last week we planted seeds in soil with water, soil without water, water only, and nothing. We put some of the plantings in shoe boxes to make sure they do not get any light; the others we placed in the window to expose them to sunlight. We were surprised to see the seeds in water sprout the very next day, and those getting soil, water, and sunlight sprouted in two days. We will continue monitoring our plants to see how they thrive in the various growing conditions. This week, we will learn about the parts of plants and their functions.

In addition to continuing our study of the autumn season, we will introduce several new works on community helpers and begin our classroom unit on community.

Don’t forget about Montessori Fits on Thursday, an evening of workshops for parents to learn about Montessori curriculum at Lamplighter. Please let us know if you did not get the information in the Monday folder last week. We hope to see you there!

Also, parent/teacher conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, October 31. There is no school on this day, but child care is available during the time parents are meeting with their child’s teacher. Kindergarten parents are allotted 30 minutes for the conference; everyone else has 15 minutes. We will be posting conference sign-up sheets in the main office.

Thank you to the Kuskye family for providing our snacks this week.

Have a great week!
