Another busy week lies ahead for 4K. On Wednesday at 10 am we will join SPCA and the Am Vets as they demonstrate the flag folding process and the meaning behind each fold. We are honored to get to participate and learn about our flag. This week we will also introduce “This Land is Your Land”. In writing we will learn 2, F and how to draw a square. Identifying Anger will be the focus of our social/emotional time. There will also be a continuation of the Fall/Harvest theme.

Harvest Party

We had a great time! Thank you volunteers.


This week we have our first student birthday of the school year. I want to remind parents that you may send a sweet treat with your child on or near their birthday. Please remember two rules: 1. It must be from a commercial kitchen. (You must buy it.) 2. No Nuts, not only is Canaland nut free, but there is at least one nut allergy in our class.

Clay Corners

The school district is offering a very fun event for your 4K child. They will get to pick out and paint one Christmas ornament on November 5 or 6 from 4-7 pm at Clay Corners in Plover. Check it out. It is a lot of fun.

Pumpkin Pie Party

On Monday, November 19 from 5-6:30 pm 4K will have a Pumpkin Pie Party. We will make a no bake pie during class that day and share with our families that evening. There will also be games, coloring and lots of fun. Please RSVP so that we can make enough pies.


Parents by now you have received my suggested time. Please return the bottom portion so that I can make any needed adjustments. Thank you to all of you who have responded.
