The leaves are beginning to turn, the crows and the squirrels are making their rowdy fall noises, and children are getting excited about all the fun things that October brings. I should add that adults are getting pretty excited too.
Classrooms have seen apple activities. These will followed soon by pumpkins, bats, spiders, and plenty of other fall discoveries. Costumes are being discussed as children make that very important decision each year - What will I be? We at Blue Ridge Primary get the wonderful opportunity to view the excitement of the fall season through the eyes of our young charges. We hope that you take the time to share the warmth and excitement also with your children.
Near the end of the month, our school will be having its character parade. Students will get to dress up as their favorite book character and join the parade of all their friends to share a love for books. We will also be having our fall festival where good memories are always made. How many of you remember fondly some of those activities you got to do at the school harvest festival? When I shut my eyes, I can still smell the smells and hear the voices of my friends. I remember with warmth all that my mother did in getting involved and making my childhood one to remember.
I hope you take the time to join us in our joyful times. You fill a spot that is sorely missed when you are not involved with all our fun!
