Pre-Kindergarten News

Greetings from our PreK bedroom,

We are having a great time this week in PreK celebrating our wonderful school and all Catholic schools around the nation. Monday we showed so much spirit by wearing our move-a-thon shirts and our school colors. Today the students kept telling me how sleepy they felt wearing their pajamas all day – too bad no one wanted to take a nap 😉

I wanted to remind you that tomorrow is Grand Friends’ Day. Please dress your child in their best school uniform and meet me in the Koinonia Room (to the left of the church entrance) by 8:40a. They will leave their backpacks on a designated table and then proceed into Mass with their Grand Friend where Mass will begin promptly at 8:45a. Those who do not have a visitor will either sit with me or join a classmate with their friend. After Mass (9:45 or so), we will go downstairs for breakfast. Everyone is invited!

Last minute request: We are in desperate need of pancake flippers!! Ms. Romero is going to be at school at 0’dark hundred to try to cook breakfast with very few helpers. If you have ANY free time, we could really use your help. Thank you!!

About 10:30a, we will say goodbye to our Grand Friends and go outside for recess. We will come back to the classroom for a bit of work and lunch. Please remember to send in a lunch and drink from home as there will not be cafeteria service. Morning students may be picked up in our classroom at 12:15p.

Thursday, we will dress up as our hero. Superheroes are not exactly what we are looking for, as this is not Halloween. We would like to see doctors, policemen, bakers, etc. We have been talking about it in the classroom, so do the best you can.

Friday, we will dress like our friends. I believe Mrs. Woosley has helped coordinate this one – Thank you!

We have bee working on the letter Ii this week – igloos, Inuit people and iguanas. It has been a little hard to concentrate, but routine is the way to go. We will finish our week by talking about Groundhog Day. Not a very scientific day, but fun all the same. We will make predictions and then see what happens on Saturday and report back on Monday.

Once again, thank you for blessing me with your wonderful children!

Ms. Madden
