Butterfly School News - OCTOBER 2020
Hooray! The Butterflies are back at school! What a joy to see all the precious faces of our students and their families!
Extensive safety pre-planning has allowed us to safely open Butterfly School during this time of "COVID" and is progressing well! A special thank you to our parents for being proactive in their attention to new safety protocols helping us assure the health and well being of our children, teachers and families. Your gracious support, understanding and patience is greatly appreciated!
Our teachers and staff are going above and beyond in staying ahead of the new sanitation procedures. These new COVID cleaning procedures are in ADDITION to our already stringent cleaning routine.
As long as COVID-19 continues to pose a health and safety problem, these extra cleaning and sanitation adjustments will remain in place.
Prayers for continued safety for all of us as we carefully and cautiously move forward this school year.
TRUNK or TREAT - COVID style!

CHAPEL CHAT Ms Chris
Hello everyone! It is great to be back at Butterfly School! So many exciting things are happening this month in Chapel. Fall is in the air and we are noticing our world is bursting with color! Our lessons will focus on God’s creations, including creating us. We will learn that God created the world in 7 days. We will hear the Bible stories about how God made us and how God takes care of us.
October’s Memory Verse is Genesis 1:31 “Everything God made was very good.”
Our toddlers enjoy their snacks during Ms Chris and her chapel lesson.
MUSICAL MOMENTS Ms Deborah
It is so good to see all of you at Butterfly School!! Music is off to a great start. I love hearing all of your children’s voices.
For the month of October the Toddlers and 2s will be singing all kinds of nursery rhyme songs while shaking shakers, and using scarves to move to the music. We are learning the idea of rhythm and beat.
The 3s classes are taking a journey through the alphabet musically we began this week with A is for Anthem We will follow with L is for Lullaby, N is for notes, D is for Dynamics, and H is for Harmony. Along with an alphabet journey we will also be talking about the basics of music. Our focus is Dynamics this month. We started with forte or loud songs this week, next will be piano for soft, and mezzo forte for normal volume.
The Pre-K class will be focused on music appreciation. We are covering dynamics, tempo, and rhythm. Then we begin our journey into the orchestra and the instruments that make it up. Each class will use their own instruments and props that will be cleaned after each use.
I am so excited to share music with your children and am so excited to be back at school.
Have a blessed day!
Our Toddlers having fun in Ms Deborah's music class!
