Picture Day Rescheduled -PLUS! 

You will be happy to know that picture day has been rescheduled for Nov. 17th.  That is the same day as our Stone Soup Celebration, so it will be a busy day at Garden City.  Our photographer is a freelance professional who will be taking pictures of all the children and staff that day.  She is also offering family pictures the next day, Saturday the 18th, by appointment.  Families will meet her at a designated park and have a 20-minute session that is completely focused on your family.  Stay tuned for more information.

Stone Soup Invitation                                 

You are all invited to our 6th annual Stone Soup Celebration on Nov. 17th.  On that day, each child will be asked to bring one vegetable to school.  We will take the vegetables and make Stone Soup to share with you that evening.  Children in the preschool class will also make biscuits and butter to share with you that night.  This is a great time to relax, enjoy a meal, connect with Garden City staff, and meet some of the families who have children the same age as yours.   Watch for more information as we get a bit closer.

Pumpkin Contest

Thank you to everyone who voted for a pumpkin.  We had a lot of fun coming up with different ideas.  What I like best is that all of the ideas are SO different, and all child friendly.  Another great thing is that the seeds from at least one of the pumpkins are now planted in the garden in the back.  Hopefully, we’ll get to watch them grow.  The winner of the pumpkin competition is ….drum roll please…. Cookie Monster!!!  (All those free cookies might have helped.)

EHS Parent Meeting

Mark your calendars for Nov. 15th for an Early Headstart Parent Meeting.  You will meet your new Family Support Specialist and have an opportunity to ask any questions you have about transitions, in-kind, and how to make the most of the activities you have for your child’s development.  The meeting will be held here.  Watch for a specific time when it gets a bit closer.

Parent Tip

One of our parents says that she wards of the dreaded head lice by putting a few drops of tea tree oil in her child’s shampoo or conditioner every time she shampoos.  Evidently lice don’t like it and it smells great to people!

Facebook

Garden City is now on Facebook!  Look for us and like us there. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Garden-City-Child-Development-Center/629116287192372?ref=hl

We normally update it at least once a week.  

 

Family in Focus

Did you know that we are praying for you?  We are.  And we draw a name from our watering can every week or so to find a family (or team member) to focus on.  When we draw your name, we will ask if there is something specific we can pray for you or your family.  Experience tells me, this usually comes at a really good time!  The names for the  Family in Focus will be posted (without prayer requests) on the board in the entry way, along with the memory verse for the month.  That way you can pray along with us and be a part of blessing various families in the Garden City community.

 

Safety

Also, please remember that sandals for school need backs on them to hold them on your child’s feet.  The others are not really safe for school. 

 

Scholastic Book Club

Be on the lookout for October's Scholastic flyer.  Take advantage of these deals.  Order your books! 

 

 

Bible Theme

Our Bible theme for the month of October is David.  Our children’s Bible doesn’t have a lot about him, but he is someone who offers us a lot of opportunities for learning.  First, he was a younger son in the family and many of us know what it is like to have to measure up to our older siblings.  Second, he was a shepherd.  This gives us the chance to learn about sheep, what they are like, and what they need.  What does a good shepherd do?  Next he was a musician and song-writer.  This gives us the chance to focus on music and maybe make up songs of our own.  He is probably most famous for his fight with Goliath.  David the warrior only became a warrior because he couldn’t stand for anyone to badmouth God.  God blessed him in that battle and in many others.  David became king.  What does it mean to be a good ruler?  Finally,  David was imperfect, but God said he was a man after His own heart.  That reminds us that we are loved…even though imperfect
