As BUMNS begins our second month of school, I have observed that the children have adjusted well to BUMNS preschool routines. I enjoy becoming acquainted with each child and their families. The children are becoming familiar with new routines and classmates. I am amazed how well the 2 Day children have acclimated to their new surroundings. You have done a terrific job reassuring your children that you will return at the end of the morning.

The children have been learning these skills and routines:
• recognizing classmate’s names
• taking turns and sharing with new friends
• transitioning from one activity to the next
• improving small motor skills using pencils, crayons, paint, glue and scissors
• taking care of belongings
• using quiet indoor voices and saving loud voices for outside
• cooperation in the classroom

Lunch n’ Play has been well attended this fall. The children enjoy socializing and outdoor recess on the playground. Please cut grapes and cherry tomatoes in half. Your child’s safety is our number one concern.

There is a teacher In-Service on Friday, October 13th. There will be no school. Parents are invited to join others at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Wayne. After Pizza, wings or salad join families at Encke Park in Radnor. 20% of tracked dine-in and carry-out sales will be donated to BUMNS.

BUMNS is participating in the Square Art fundraiser. Your children’s’ art will be replicated on a variety of keepsakes. The keepsakes include; mugs, keychains, mousepads. Information packets will be sent home on Monday.

BUMNS is also partnering with A Casa Pizza during the month of October. Pizzas and Stromboli’s can be ordered from A Casa. Delivery will be on October 30th and 31st. The pizzas are perfect for an easy Halloween Eve dinner.

I am occasionally asked why fundraise at BUMNS? Fundraising helps distinguish our preschool from other schools in the area. Monies raised have built our playground, given us funds to add new educational tools to our Game Room and classes, installed a security system, painted classrooms, bought music instruments and KIM equipment. Fundraising helps support our school environment. Tuitions do not cover the full cost of education. Fundraisers help BUMNS offset the costs of providing a high-quality learning experience to children. Fundraising enhances a child’s early education experience.

Dads evening social will be held on Friday, October 20th from 7:00-10:00 PM at Devon Bowling Lanes. The cost is $30. Email the office for more information
