News From the Forest

Ranger Lincoln
This week's Ranger is Lincoln.  He is ten-years-old and he was born in Chapel Hill. His family includes his mom, dad, and my sister. He has a dog, a goldfish, and a cat. The things he likes to do when he is at home is watch tv shows and play sports. His favorite food is chocolate. His least favorite food is stew. His hobbies are playing sports, playing with my friends, and playing with my sister.  When he goes on vacation he most likes to go on his swim team trips to Myrtle Beach. His dream vacation would be to go California. Lincoln is really good at swimming. When he grows up right now he would like to be an Olympic swimmer.

Notes from the Teachers:

  • Our Lower School Halloween celebration is this Friday, October 28th. In the morning we will go on a hay ride around the campus. Your child may bring a costume to change into at lunch/recess time. After lunch recess we will parade through the Middle and Upper School in our costumes. (We ask that students not bring in fake swords, knives, or any type of weapon that may go with their costume.)  After the parade students will enjoy this year's Halloween play, put on by the Lower School staff. Forest Class will enjoy Halloween refreshments after the play. A special THANK YOU to all of the parents who are sending in treats and/or volunteering to help out Friday afternoon. 
  • Just a reminder next Wednesday, November 2nd is a noon dismissal day. 
  • Lower School Picture Day is next Thursday, November 3rd in the morning. 
  • Carolina Friends School Book Fair is coming up at The Regulator on 9th Street in Durham on Saturday, November 12th and Sunday, November 13th. Each unit from the school will have a "wish list" of books that classes or libraries would like to have for their classroom use. The books that are on these lists will be at the Regulator Book Store. We invite Lower School families to purchase any of these books and dedicate them to your child's classroom or the Lower School Library. Your child received a green handout on Monday with more information about the Book Fair.
  • Forest Class Laundry Parents - Thank you for helping out with our classroom laundry each week. We have noticed our laundry could probably be washed every other week. So as soon as our schedule is complete, a new schedule will be sent out which reflects an every other week laundry routine.
