Hello again, Board Members, Friends, and Families,

We have just finished another month filled with Love, Laughter, and Learning!  It has definitely been an adventurous 10 weeks for our center!  I was so excited when the doctors finally released me to come back to work this week!  Thank you to everyone who helped out during my absence.  We are excited to welcome back our original Early Bird Dynamic Team!  What a blessing they are to me, our Early Bird Families and to CTSA!  Welcome home Miss Brittney, Miss Connie and Miss Denise!  We are looking forward to a new month filled with lots of love, laughter and learning in the months to come! 

For the month of October the children have been studying about trees.  They have learned about different types of trees, what grows on trees, people who take care of trees, what types of animals that live in trees, what we can make out of trees, and what types of foods that grows on trees.   We have gathered leaves, measured trees and created different types of art with our trees.  

We celebrated our dads at Early Bird with a Dad’s Day (Family) Breakfast.  The children made cards for their dads and sang songs for them.  After breakfast the dads worked together with their child to choose the perfect pumpkin to decorate together.   Check out all our very unique handy work of our dads and their children!  Thank you dads and family members who helped to make it a great success! 

The parents planned a wonderful Halloween Party for our students.  They decorated and helped get everything ready for the party.  Thank you parents for all your help!  As the children were getting ready for the party, Miss Brittney showed the children how to carve a pumpkin.  They predicted what the pumpkin had inside, if it was hot or cold, soft or hard.  They decided what shape the  Jack-o-lanterns face would look like.  They were excited when we turned out the lights to see the Jack-o-lanterns smiling face!   The fire department came with Sparky the Fire Dog to talk to the children about fire safety and about Trick-or-Treating safely.  The children sang their Halloween songs for the parents and the firefighters.  They did a great job! 

Next month we are finishing up our tree study, celebrating our Native American Heritage, planning our Family Thanksgiving lunch and gearing up for the holidays. So until next time we will be filling our days with lots of Love, Laughter and Learning!
