October Newsletter - Noah’s Ark Preschool 2019

Autumn brings lots of excitement and events!


Our themes this month are:

Farm, Bugs, Fairy Tales and Fall Fun!


Fall Fundraiser

We will be having a “scent”-sational Fall Fundraiser through “La-Tee-Da”! There are a variety of candles and wax melts, along with room sprays/diffuser oils and bath salts in various scents, just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Every child will receive a sales flyer in their file the second week of October, so please let us know if you did not get one/need extras! The top seller will receive a prize; the top selling class will receive an ice-cream party! All orders and money (checks made payable to Noah’s Ark Preschool) will be due no later than Tuesday October 29th. Funds raised will be utilized to purchase new math and science materials for every classroom!


“Trunk or Treat”

We are pleased to announce our annual “Trunk or Treat”! On Thursday October 31st at 10am the teachers will line the children up to go “trunk or treating” in a sectioned-off portion of our parking lot. We are asking for volunteers from our families and church members, to distribute candy to each child from the (decorated, please!) trunks of their vehicles. Your child may dress up for school in costume that day as their favorite storybook character! (Please nothing with “weapons” or scary/demons or witches!) Please have your child bring in a book that represents the character that they’ve chosen, so that we can read the books in class that morning!


Please see the sign-up sheet in your child's classroom if you wish to donate candy and/or dress up your vehicle for this special event. The children will be judging the vehicles, and the lucky winner will receive a prize!


Halloween Tips!

You know that Halloween candy that no one eats? Here is a great tip for you! Sort through the candy before your kids eat it, then pick out the disliked pieces and put them in a freezer bag. Come December, you have candy to decorate a gingerbread house!



Does your family carve pumpkins? If you can wait until Halloween night, sprinkle your pumpkin with a little cinnamon. As the candle warms your pumpkin, your whole house will smell faintly of pumpkin pie! If you carve early, rub the inside of your pumpkin with Vaseline, as it won’t dry out as fast and stay fresher longer!



Fire Safety


October is Fire Prevention month! Noah’s Ark holds fire drills monthly, so that we may be prepared in case of an emergency. We are in touch with the Fire Department to schedule them for a visit to our school sometime in the next few weeks!



Just a reminder that Noah’s Ark will be closed on Monday October 14th for Professional Day.
