Autumn is Here!

Happy Fall! Today is the official first day of Autumn! This has us thinking of all the fun cool weather activities ahead of us!

Which brings me to a couple of reminders:

-Please check your child’s extra clothes for school and make sure to add some pants and long sleeved shirts as well as t-shirts and shorts.

-Also, if it’s going to be chilly, please make sure your child has a jacket or sweatshirt to wear for outside play. We go out every morning and every afternoon.


Fundraising Time! We are currently doing two fundraisers for our school!

First is the Yankee Candle Fundraiser!  All the information was put in the parent mailboxes in the hallway.  There are two ways to shop this one! You can either shop from the catalog and use the order form or shop online! There are some online exclusive items you can buy as well!  Just visit www.yankeecandlefundraising.com and enter the Group Number (from the information in your fundraiser packet) in the “Start Shopping” box.  Then shop away!  This fundraiser started on September 14th and orders are due to the office by September 30th.  Delivery will take 2-4 weeks.  If you are paying with a check, please make the checks payable to Goddard Parent Organization.

Second is the Scholastic Book Fair! The Book Fair is at our school now and will be here until Friday the 25th.  Come on in and shop for some new books! This time we received many new titles, lots of board books for the younger children, some really funny Halloween themed books, and yummy cookbooks as well! Each classroom made a Wish List for their room.  You can shop from their wish lists and donate a book to your child’s class.  The Wish Lists are located at the front of the school next to Case 1.  You can purchase items using cash, checks made out to Goddard, or credit card!

Thank you so much for all of your support! It is greatly appreciated!


In Autumn
by Winifred C. Marshall

They’re coming down in showers,
The leaves all gold and red;
They’re covering the little flowers,
And tucking them in bed
They’ve spread a fairy carpet
All up and down the street;
And when we skip along to school,
they rustle ‘neath our feet

It is Goddards’s 25th Birthday! We are celebrating 25 years of nurturing children into respectful, confident and joyful learners. Our celebration starts on January 15th and goes until February 8th. In order to help make a positive impact in our community and across the country, we will participate in fundraising events to support The Ronald McDonald House.

Here are the following ways we plan to raise money for The Ronald McDonald House. Help us support families who use The Ronald McDonald House during their time of need.

1. We will be raffling off 3 gift baskets. 1 for $5 or 3 for $10
-Flyers tickets
-$100 gift certificate to Borghi’s + 2 hours of free babysitting
– Free Summer Camp Activity Fee for one child

2. We will be collecting donations to make gift baskets for parents and children
residing in The Ronald McDonald House.

3.We will be having a coin collection contest in each classroom. The classroom
that collects the most money will win an ice cream party.

4.Our teachers will be holding a bake sale the first week in February.
5.Our teachers have donated money to wear jeans every day.

We hope you have fun in helping us celebrate our beautiful school and children around the country!
