Mrs. Rambo and Mrs. Meisenhelter's class enjoying the Blue Mound Fire Department Fire Safety Program.
Today for Little Hawks we read the book Mind Your Manners about misbehaving animals learning how to be polite to make the world a better place! We also traced our hands to make a bee craft to help us remember to “Be Kind! Be Polite and Be A Good Friend!” I think our favorite part might have been jumping around to our songs and running around/acting out different animal moves in the gym!!
Just a reminder that Thursday, Sept 22nd, is Little Hawks at the Blue Mound Community Center at 9:30am. We will be reading a book about manners, playing an interactive game with pretend food to teach “yes, please” and “no thank you”, doing an animal workout, singing songs with sign language for “sorry” and “excuse me”, doing a craft and snack!! Hope to see you in the morning!!
Grandparents Day in Mrs. Heffernan’s Kindergarten class!
Our Little Hawks end of September plan is dependent on when the butterflies arrive to Mrs. Edwards's house here in Blue Mound. Around the end of September, her yard fills up with hundreds of butterflies and it's a very neat experience. As of today, they haven't arrived, so we will plan to do Little Hawks on Thursday, Sept 22nd, this week at 9:30am at the Blue Mound Community Center. If the butterflies happen to show up in the next few days we can save the end of our time for a stroll to her house (2 short blocks away from the community center), but we will keep you posted.

The Little Hawks playgroup had a wonderful time at the Scovill Zoo yesterday! Our next playgroup will meet Tuesday, September 6th at the Blue Mound Library. Come anytime between 10:45-11:45am to celebrate National Read a Book Day with Mrs. Holdener. Your little one can either bring their favorite book or check one out and Mrs. Holdener will read to your child. The library toys will also be out to play with too, so your child can either sit and listen to other children's favorite books or play! Both morning and afternoon pre-k classes are still in session on this day. Little Hawks is a playgroup designed to reach our 0-3 age group and those children not currently enrolled in the Meridian Pre-K program, but all preschool aged children are welcome to come. Here is a copy of the Little Hawks newsletter for more events available both through the school and throughout the community. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lpGsxvct625ebz0DAv5g3q0JMGDpKrn0QHFETWlYFmE/edit?usp=sharing
