Message from Cathy Davis, Director of Early Childhood Education:
It's Autumn in Northwest Arkansas, and as leaves transform into beautiful fall colors, our young pre-kindergarten students are discovering the many wonders of this beautiful Fall season, enjoying nature walks with classmates, hands-on math activities, seasonal stories, Autumn songs & chants, outdoor explorations to increase gross-motor development, & seasonal art and cooking experiences. - - Allow me to share just a few of our special events with you:
In September, our pre-kindergarten students participated in special Fall learnings about the farm with an on-site pre-k field trip to THE PUMPKIN PATCH, with autumn stories from the farm, a corn crib for math measuring, pouring & filling, Fall Harvest games, and selection of pumpkins for each child to take home to share with their family.
In October, our young students listened carefully as Community Helpers shared about fire safety, stranger danger, emergencies, and how to STOP, DROP, and ROLL! We sincerely appreciate our local Firefighters, Police Officers, and Ambulance teams who help our families every day.
This Fall 2015, we want to thank our many partners in education....Altrusa of Rogers for providing dental health check-ups for pre-k; The Rogers Garden Club...for helping us learn about monarch butterflies, headed South for the Winter; Harley - Davidson for donating $2000 to the Pre-K Program for purchase of new trikes! - -and J. B. Hunt Corp. for allowing one of our daddy's bring their BIG-RIG from J.B. Hunt for children to tour.
At the end of October, our school will host our Annual Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences, Oct. 26-30. We look forward to sharing each students progress at school with their family.
November brings a change in the weather, as colder days become more frequent, with boys and girls in need of a warm coat, hat, and gloves for daily outdoor exploration activities.
On November 19th, Pre-k will host it's Annual Thanksgiving Feast, and we want to invite all pre-k families to attend a delicious meal of turkey & dressing with all the trimmings.
Meal cost for each family guest will be $3.75, & deadline for guest meals is November 5th.
All RPS classes will be dismissed on November 25-26-27 for the Thanksgiving Holidays,
with all classes resuming on Monday, November 30th.
I hope this information helps you, and I certainly invite all to view our Rogers Pre-K Newsletter for additional class information (click...LATEST NEWS... in box above).

Happy Autumn Learnings!
