November 2017 – ECC News


At KRECC we are proud of the many things that make our school unique. Our early childhood center is family oriented, with many of our families living around the block from school. This year we wanted to try something different for our back to school event. In the spirit of families getting to know each other better, we had a back to school social at Shaw Park. The children had a great time running through the splash pad, swinging, and climbing on the playground equipment, while parents had the opportunity to connect with other parents.

During Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Shafrin dropped by the ECC classrooms to blow the shofar. At our family program, kids picked apples off trees and sorted them by color, sifted through a sensory bin of oats to discover symbols of Rosh Hashanah, and traced and colored apples and honey coloring pages. During Sukkot, Rabbi Arnow stopped by classrooms to show a lulav and etrog. Families also joined us on Sukkot for a pasta dinner in the sukkah. (see back cover)

Last year we held our book fair at Barnes and Noble. It was such a great success that we will be doing it again this year. On November 12, our Preschool Parent Organization is organizing a family event at Barnes and Noble. Just like last year, the book fair will be open for a week, during which time families can make in-store or online purchases using a specific code (see ad on page 10). Our school will get a percentage back from all the purchases so start thinking about holiday gifts.
