THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE HALLOWEEN PARTY A HUGE SUCCESS!

Thank you to everyone who came to the annual Halloween Party this weekend! It was so fun to see all those clever, unique and adorable costumes. We had a great turnout this year with 323 people in attendance! 

This event would not be possible without the help of some very talented and amazing volunteers: A special thank you to our Halloween Party Co-Chairs Melissa Basso and Courtney Benson who worked their magic to help coordinate the event and lead the Halloween Party Committee team.

A huge thank you to our Halloween Party Committee members who also put in many hours and used their talents to design and run some of the many wonderful booths that were there including the pumpkin patch (pumpkins courtesy of Trader Joe’s), trick-or-treat station, photo booth and many more! Thank you to the Halloween Food & Beverage team and the members of that team for providing and setting up the delicious food for the party. A big thank you to Whole Foods for donating food platters and the pumpkin cookies for the cookie decorating station.

We would also like to thank our Events Team: Jenna Hesse and Michelle Cirigliano who led the efforts of the event and especially a large thank you to all the National Charity League volunteers from Skyline and Crystal Springs Chapter! We couldn’t have done this event without you!

The party wouldn’t have been complete without a visit from Elmo! A huge thank you to Dino Chen and Edward Herrera for being this year’s Elmos and stepping in to fill the very big shoes of Mireille’s husband, Tom. This is always a highlight of the party and we really were happy we were able to have Elmo at both parties!

THANK YOU AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR COMING!
 

DISCUSSION CYCLE # 3- FOCUS ON TEMPERAMENT

Please do read the handouts posted to Konstella prior to your discussion cycle for a more robust discussion.  

PHOTO SHOOTS WITH SHEILA 

There are still a few time slots available for fall photos with Sheila Krakow. Sign up here. There are no upfront fees, other than the sitting fee of $20 per time slot, payable to Sheila. This is part of our fundraising effort and she is an awesome photographer. Get great shots for holiday cards or gifts and support Little Wonders at the same time. 

DIAPER DRIVE FOR LIFEMOVES

To kick off Little Wonders’ community outreach activities this school year, we will be collecting diapers of all sizes during the remainder of October and into November. These diapers will go to LifeMoves, which benefits homeless families with small children in San Mateo. Open and closed packages of diapers are welcome, as are new packages of wipes. To learn more about LifeMoves, click here. There will be a collection box in the Little Wonders classroom starting on Monday.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS DUE OCTOBER 31 

Order your Thanksgiving books and lots of other great books by October 31 for November delivery. Sign up at www.Scholastic.com/bookclubs. At the site, if you don’t get routed immediately to the parent page, you will need to click on the “Parent” button on the home page. On the Parent page, if you do not already have a username and password with Scholastic, click the “register” button to register for your own username and password. When prompted, enter the one-time class activation code (GKC39). This code ensures that your order is sent. More information can be found on the flyer in your parent packet. These make great party favors, stocking stuffers or gifts for your friends or toddler when having a new baby! 

MONDAY PM SCHOOL WASH COMING UP SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1-3 PM

The Monday PM class school wash is coming up on Saturday, November 2 from 1-3 PM at Little Wonders. Only one parent needs to attend and no children please. This is a fun opportunity to meet others in your class and to make sure the school is kept clean and safe for our little ones.  

If you cannot make this date please contact facilities@littlewonders.org to reschedule. You may reschedule for one of the two next washes or pay the $175 buy-out. We thank you in advance for following through on this co-op commitment.  

 

KEEPSAKES ARE COMING! 

Our Fall Keepsake run is coming up! You will all receive a separate announcement with a link to an order form for ordering your holiday keepsakes. These are special ceramic treasures featuring your child’s handprints and personalized for those special people in your lives. Examples will be in the classroom next week and the order form is coming. Pieces are limited so order quickly! The order form will be due on November 7, and the keepsakes will be made during class the following two weeks.
