Our Heavenly Friend

"Pray, hope, and don't worry."
--Padre Pio

Padre Pio is our classroom saint. Each day our students will pass by his image and enjoy his heavenly intercession. Saint Padre Pio, pray for us in Pre K 1!

October News 2018

October has arrived and we are starting to get ready for Halloween.  We have a "pumpkin vine" starting to grow in our classroom and we have been learning about how a pumpkin grows.

We have a field trip planned to the pumpkin patch on Monday, October 29th.  We also will have our Halloween Parade and Celebration on Tuesday, October 30th.  The parade will begin at 10:00 in the field by the playground.

Please remember to send your child to school in their costume that morning!  

This month our Religion Theme of Rejoice in the Lord introduces us to the second commandment.  You shall not take the name of your Lord Thy God in vain.  The virtuous action is thoughtfulness in speaking about God.

The alphabet letters we will be learning are E, T, H, I and U.  Please bring in a Show & Tell, on Tuesdays,  that begins with the letter of the week.  The shapes we are learning are circle, square, oval, triangle and rectangle.  Each week there is also a different theme that we will be learning about.

Our Bishop will visit our school on Wednesday, October 17th and we will sing a song for him.  

A reminder that on Wednesday and Thursday October 24th & 25th, there will be 11:50 dismissal for Parent/Teacher Conferences.  Please sign up for a conference.  I would like to see all of you to discuss your child's progress in adjusting to the school environment.

Remember no school on October 31st it's our Faculty Retreat day!

Have a wonderful October! 




September Fun!

Welcome to Pre-K 1!

We are so excited to start a new year with a wonderful group of students.  The children have only been in school for three days and they already have the routine down pat!

We start out this year by learning about our school, ourselves, our five senses, our emotions, our friends and our family!  It is a full month! 

Our religion theme this year is REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS!  We will spend each month learning about each of the Ten Commandments and the virtuous action that is related to it.  September is I am the LORD your God you shall not have strange gods before me.  The virtuous Action is Faithfulness:  Keeping God First in our lives. 

This week we will have our opening Prayer Service and next week we will celebrate our Parish Feast Day:  The Feast of The Holy Cross!  We will have a School Mass in the morning and a Procession of the Cross down State Street in the afternoon! 

September will also bring the study of colors both primary and secondary colors.  

We will have several celebration days so check out our calendar for the dates!  My favorite is our classroom saint's Feast Day Celebration,  We will celebrate on Monday, September 24th with lots of Italian Singing Dancing and Food!

September will be a wonderful month!

It's good to be back in school with all of these wonderful children!
