Carved and ready!

Are your pumpkins carved and ready for the big day?

photoOur Head Start friends never let a rainy day get them down.  During recess, they took the opportunity to clean out pumpkins, count and clean seeds, and carve (with assistance) photo 02some funny faces to share.  The room was abuzz with excitement and orange goo! 🙂

Other classrooms and our own Nurse Sullivan talked about Halloween safety in anticipation of several events tomorrow.  Here are a few important tips to remember (based on advise from our learners):

  • Never trick-or-treat alone; go in groups and with a trusted adult.
  • Use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags to help drivers see you.
  • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them.
  • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see others and others to see you.
  • Wear well-fitting costumes, masks, and shoes to avoid blocked vision and possible falls.
  • Only visit well-lit homes.

Autumn holidays like Halloween are fun times for everyone involved.  Most importantly, be safe out there as you get those pumpkins carved and ready!

Happy Halloween!

It’s been a BOO-tiful day overall…and we’re not just talking about the glorious autumn day!  From the first “Cowabunga, Dudes” to special SPELLing activities to the Peanuts gang and the Three Amigos, our learners and their classroom leaders have been “thick as thieves” into this special day.  We started with our annual parade of book characters and moved into various engaging activities involving pumpkins and a little event known as classroom parties.  Thanks to all our wonderfully supportive parents, community mentors, and friends who TREATed our learners to many special opportunities throughout the day!  EnJOY these captured moments and Happy Halloween from everyone at LME!  🙂

PS – Please remember to wear green to support our Ethan (his favorite color) tomorrow and bring your items to donate to Manna House!
