October 2019   

Dear Parents,

Welcome to October!  It was great seeing so many friendly faces at Back to School Night.  I hope you enjoyed the night as much as I did.

We have a busy month ahead of us.  Please be sure to read the newsletter so you are aware of all the happenings.

Our Oma’s Pumpkin Patch field trip is coming up, more information is below.  Also we will end the month with a costume parade and trick or treating, more information on the back.

When dropping off or picking up your child, please follow the speed limit.  We have a retirement home behind us and there are residential homes across from us. 

Blessings,

Shawn Santo
 
 
OTHER NEWS: 

Oma’s Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

We will be going to Oma’s Pumpkin Patch on Friday October 18.  Please mark your calendar because you won’t want to miss this fun event.  EVERY CHILD NEEDS AN ADULT CHAPERONE.  The cost is $10 per child and $5 for adults.  We have a scheduled hay ride at 10:00 AM.  Please arrive at the pumpkin patch by 9:30 AM.  We are open at our usual time, you can drop off your child and then come back to take them to the pumpkin patch.  Please let your teacher know your plans. 

There will be no one at school between the hours of 9:20 am -11:00am.  All teachers will be at Oma’s.  You may not bring your child back to school before 11 am.  Please plan accordingly. 
 

Please know that the hay ride can only accommodate the student and one adult.  We can’t guarantee that siblings or additional adults will be able to ride.

Halloween at LPCC 

On Halloween, October 31, each class will trick or treat around the school.  After we are done trick or treating we will have a parade around the playground to show off our costumes.  Parents are welcome to come and help trick or treat and watch the parade.  We will start around 11:15 am.

Your child is welcome to bring their “preschool friendly” Halloween costume for our parade and trick or treating.  Please talk to teachers about details.

Box Tops Fundraiser

Thank you to the families who have turned in Box Tops.  This is free money for our school.  The first submission date is approaching; we plan on sending in the box tops by October 15.

See’s Fundraiser

We will begin our annual See’s candy fundraiser in November.  We will have the orders back before Christmas.  This is a big fundraiser.  The top class will win a pizza party.  We are saving the fundraiser money to be able to get a secure entrance to the preschool.

SDMOM’s need our help

San Diego Military Outreach Ministries (SDMOM) has a long tradition of serving military families.   They provide helping services to enlisted military families (mostly ranks E-5 and below) and families of deployed and injured service members in SD county.  SDMOM serves families of all faiths.  Many of the junior enlisted families struggle to make it from one paycheck to the next while living in one of the most expensive parts of the country, SDMOM is there to provide help with “basic” needs.

How can we help?  With Thanksgiving fast approaching we can help by donating nonperishable food items.  We will have a box out by the sign in table starting October 14.  So when you are at the grocery store pick up a few extra items to help a family.

ILLNESS POLICY:

 If your child has a fever, vomits or has diarrhea at school or home, they may not return to school for 24 hours after the symptoms are gone.It is very important to keep your child home if they are not feeling well.  If you have any doubts it is better to keep your child home one more day than to send then to school when they are not quite up to it.  If your child has conjunctivitis (pink eye) they may not return to school until they have received antibiotic treatment for 24 hours.  Remember good handwashing is very effective in keeping disease from spreading.  Our policy will cut down on the transition of disease to other children, and our staff.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

If anything has changed with your emergency or contact information, please contact the Preschool Office so we can update and be sure we have your correct information.  When a little one is ill, time is of the essence in trying to reach a parent.  In addition if working, please leave-detailed instructions if needed to make it easier for us to contact you at work.  Cell phones are not always reliable.  We need a back up way to reach you.
