Ms. Brooke’s Return

Dear SHARE Parents,

I have thoroughly enjoyed the 6 weeks I was able to spend with my newest daughter, Ella.

Lisa, Kristi, Maria, and Sam did an excellent job while I was gone. I never had to worry or stress during my leave…they graciously took care of it all! I will be returning this week for the Wednesday/Friday class. The following week, I will be working Monday/Wednesday/Friday and I will be back on a daily basis starting on October 24th.  I am excited to get to know the children in the 3 year old class and get reacquainted with the 4’s. Thanks for your continued support as I make my transition back to the classroom.

Sincerely,

Brooke Soppe

This week, we have the opportunity to explore and observe Bee-Bots. A Bee-Bot is an easy- to-operate robot designed for young children. They are colorful and sturdy and so much fun! So, don’t forget to ask your child about them.

Also, a huge thanks to all the moms, dads, and grandparents that accompanied their child to Uncle Bill’s Pumpkin Farm. We had such a great time!

All classes will go to the Pumpkin Farm on Thursday, October 6.  We still need many volunteers to be chaperones.  There is still plenty of room on the bus.

Parents – Please have your child at the McCann Center at 10:30 a.m.  You will need to check in with one of the teachers to receive your itinerary for the day.  Please read it carefully and note important meeting times.  We will have coolers for you to store your lunch at the front doors of the McCann Center. (When packing your lunch, please remember to mark your bag with your name).

We plan to be back at the McCann Center around 1:45 p.m.  If it is a rainy day, we will be back slightly earlier.  We will not cancel unless the weather is absolutely not cooperating.  Please remember to dress for the weather.

All $9.00 fees must be paid before October 6.  Student fees are already paid by the activity fee.

A huge thank you to the parents who helped out during our trip to Mariposa!  We could not do these special outings without you.
