September Gumbo Limbo Newsletter

Dear Gumbo Limbo Families:

The Gumbo Limbo students are off to a great start reconnecting with classmates, getting to know each other,  finding new friends and settling in to our beautiful environment. You might notice some changes with new activities on our Primary playground. The children are really enjoying engaging with the new activities.

We have been focusing and learning about Grace and Courtesy these first two weeks, and also have been talking about the peace rose which we use in the Montessori Class.  The peace rose can be used as a tool for good positive communication if a situation arises within the class.

During  the month of September we will be learning about the differences between  living and non living and introducing invertebrates and vertebrates.

On Friday, September 8th we will be having our Welcome Back Potluck at 5:30 on the front lawn.  Each class takes turns setting up and cleaning up for our campus get togethers throughout the year.  The Gumbo Limbo’s are in charge of set up for the potluck.  If you are available on Friday to help please let one of us know.  We hope to have the set up done by 3:30 so we can go home and cool off and be back at 5:30 with our potluck and family.

The Gumbo Limbo’s are looking for a room Mom or Dad to organize our class bake sale which is coming up at the end of September (28 and 29th). Volunteering for this will benefit towards your work pay hours. We will have a sign up sheet available for baked goods and also setting up and manning the bake sale. We’ll post the sign up sheets soon on the bulletin board or in our sign in/out book by the front office. All the proceeds from our bake sale will go towards new materials for the class. This is a  fun occasion for our community.

A special Thank you to the Hill and Barroso families for providing items from our wish list. The children have already been enjoying the chalkboard/ painting easel and our new stainless steel bin in the practical life area.

Just a little reminder for wet bags(if you have not provided any yet) an open cup for our lunch times and for our after care, please bring in extra snack for your child during after care (also Friday’s).

Thank you Love and Peace. Ms.Nicole and Ms.Pascale
