      October

     Our class will begin a theme on “Safe, Healthy, Helpful Me.” We will be exploring ideas about places in the community, people in the community, being kind and helpful, eating well and being active. The goal of this theme is to have children develop responsibility in their daily lives while learning good citizenship. Here are some ways you can show community involvement and teach responsibility at home.

    • Take your child to community places and events, such as story hour at the public library or a high school sporting event.

    • Talk about community workers, such as crossing guards and store clerks, and how to be respectful of them.

    • Point out community resources that are part of your daily life, such as trash collection, mail delivery, bus service, and so on.

    • Practice being kind and helpful at home by getting yourself dressed, cleaning up after yourself and carrying your own backpack.
