Autumn Winds

Autumn winds begin to blow

Colored leaves fall fast and slow.

Whirling, twirling all around,

Till at last they touch the ground.

October's curriculum theme is Autumn Science. We'll have fun learning with nature all around us--apples, pumpkins, acorns and leaves are all part of play and learning this month. Please see your child's classroom door for the weekly schedule of projects, books and learning.

October is packed with special events for National Fire Safety Month, National School Bus Safety Week and Halloween. What does this mean for your child? LOTS of fun and learning with trucks, buses and costumes!

The children will be treated to a visit from the Rochester City Fire Department. These important community helpers will bring a BIG truck to the Center to show off what they do to keep us safe and share some basic safety tips.

For National School Bus Safety, Mike will bring over the Browncroft buses over to give the children an opportunity to climb aboard, turn on the lights and learn about bus rules and safety.

Finally, on October 31, it's our annual Halloween parade and trick or treat. Please be sure to send a costume to the Browncroft for your little one. We'll parade and trick and treat throughout the building.

We remind all our families, to please use extreme caution. No cars should be exiting the Center onto Atlantic Avenue. Atlantic Avenue entrance is one way into the Center. All cars should be exiting onto DeMaille Street. We also ask that you don't leave cars running in the parking lot. It is for the safety of all the children.

 Parent Notes

  • Please be sure to sign your child in and out on a daily basis.
  • Our supply of extra clothes is running very low. If you have borrowed clothes from the Browncroft closet, please return them promptly. It's always a good idea to bring extra clothes as play can be messy sometimes.
  • As always, please inform the office of changes in phone numbers, work and home addresses. Help us to stay current with your contact information!
