March




Spring is coming near and we are so excited to have this season. The year is going by so fast. Students in Pre-K have been keeping themselves busy. They are growing up so quickly and before you know it, they will be ready and off to Kindergarten. 

Here is what has been happening in Pre-K:

We’ve been going over our alphabet and slowly knowing our uppercases and lowercases. We continued doing our Letter and Number of the day and we’ve been tracing our names regularly! We will continue reviewing our letters, numbers and begin tracing and doing more letter recognition activities to get ourselves prepared for next year!

This month we will be looking at the season of Spring. We will also be doing St. Patrick’s Day activities and learn what the season of Lent is.

I hope everyone will have a blessed Lenten season. Here are some days to remember:

Friday, March 13 – No Classes Student-Led Conferences

Monday March 30 - Friday April 3 – Spring Break

Wednesday April 8 - Classes Resume for Pre-K

February





February is the month that we get to be pretty busy but definitely it will be full of fun and learning in Pre-K!

First, we will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week and will be starting with a School Mass on Sunday, February 09 at 11:00 a.m. All students are welcome to attend.



Second, February is “I Love to Read” month! I would like each student to bring two of their favorite story books to share with the class. I will take turns reading the books as the students bring them in.



Third, it is also Valentine’s Day this month. The Pre-K’s will be having their small Valentine’s Day Party on Wed. Feb. 12th. Cupcakes and juice boxes will be provided. We will also hand out small Valentines gifts or tokens and do Valentines themed activities. Please have your child make 1 Valentine gift with ONLY his/her name on it. This will make it easier when the children pass them out as they cannot read one another’s names.




Reminders:

* Wednesday, Feb. 12 ~ wear something red or a number shirt. We will be playing Bingo together will all the other students. (e.g. sports jersey)
* Friday, Feb. 14th ~ No School - In-service
* Wednesday, Feb. 26th ~ Wear a t-shirt you can read!

Thank you!

January 2020




Happy New Year everyone! Happy new decade 2020! 

I am hoping that everyone had a lovely Christmas break. This month has been a coooold month! But I really appreciate the enthusiasm and the interest the students bring to the school every time they come. I love their smiles when they come to school. 

Here’s what has been happening and what will happen in the month of January.

The children have continued doing their letters and numbers. We are also looking at the basic shapes such as; the circle, the rectangle, triangle, square, diamond, etc. We’ve been making a lot of crafts based on our shapes! 

The children did such an incredible job performing at the Christmas Concert last month! They were the cutest happiest angels. I am surprised that even they joined the Kindergartens in the performance they still managed to show their smiles and sing the song. Thank you parents for your support!

Next month is a very busy month for different events. 

Here are some dates to remember:

Tuesday February 11 – Family Lunch. 

Friday February 14- No school

IT HAS BEEN COLD! So please stay warm and dress appropriately. 

GOD BLESS!

December




Dear Parents!

A joyful and blissful December to you all! 

I can’t believe it is almost Christmas! The days have just gone by so fast. I do really hope that  everyone here has a wonderful and peaceful advent this year.

Here is what has happened in Pre-K this past month!

The Pre Kindergartens have been working on more letters and numbers. We looked at the letter D, E, F, G, and H. We explored and learned the sounds of each letter.  We study the things that start with that letter. We’ve done some counting and have been recognizing numbers up to 10. We are practicing in how to share and be kind to our friends in the class and to play nicely. We practice and remember our manners like saying "Thank you", "You're Welcome", "Please", and "I am Sorry". I am proud to say that the kids are getting better at routine in the classroom and walking in line.

We are doing a lot of crafts for Christmas! The students are getting better at coloring, cutting, and gluing things together. We learned the importance of Christmas and touched on the season of Advent. We are also preparing for our Christmas concert. We will be singing with the Kindergartens. 

Dates to remember:
December 18th – 7:00 p.m. Christmas concert 
   1:15 pm Afternoon show 
December 20th - Last school day. Early dismissal. Please wear red and green. 

The kids will perform in both shows. Please have them wear something nice (their Sunday’s best).


Have a wonderful and safe holiday everyone! See you next year!

November




We have been very busy doing our letter of the week, counting, and making different crafts. Our children in Pre-K continue to follow routine, tidy up, and listen to their teacher and grown-ups.  They are continuously developing their different skills like physical, social, emotional skills to build wonderful relationships towards each other. It is amazing to see how much they have grown since September!

This month we have focused on the letter C, D, E. The kids always look forward in seeing what they will make with their letter of the week. We also have looked at things that start with the letter and have begun to practice tracing the letter and their name and recognizing what is the upper case and lower case of our letter.




It is the month of November so we also discussed about Remembrance Day and talked about what PEACE is. We made poppies and talked about what it is and what it means.

It is almost DECEMBER! Which means the Christmas concert is coming up soon! We already started practicing the song in class for the concert very soon! Winter has arrived so please dress your children accordingly. There will be some times where we might go outside and play (depending on the wind chill).

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

October 2019




Oh wow! 

October is already here and the weather seems to be so unpredictable! Trees are changing its color, the leaves are falling, and winter is already here! We had our first feel of snow on the second week of October. Just a reminder - There will be times where we might head out for some fresh air so please have your children bring warm clothes just for in case!

Here’s what has been happening the first few weeks of October:


The children have been working, practicing and spending time getting better school routines. They are doing an amazing job in cleaning up their toys and putting things back where they belong, lining up together as a class, climbing the stairs and sitting criss-cross when it is circle or story time. We have been working on knowing the days of the week, the months of the year and what the weather is like during calendar time and we LOVE to sing the ABCs and count the days on the calendar before we get into our activities!

This month has been pretty busy! We started learning our alphabet. Every week we do the letter of the day and do activities based on that letter such as letter crafts, coloring books, dot painting, cutting, gluing and sorting. We will also do the number of the day.  

This month is also the season of Thanksgiving and Halloween! For Thanksgiving we talked about things that we are thankful for and made a hand crafted turkey and a thanksgiving wreath! The next few days we will be doing many spooooky and fun Halloween activities!

We will have Pre-k on Halloween day so your children can wear Black and Orange that day!

A few reminders:
  •  Please send a HEALTHY snack for your child during our snack time - it may include fruit slices or fruit pack.
  • Friday October 25 - NO SCHOOL - Halloween Party 7:00 - 10:00 p.m. 
  • Wednesday October 30 – Wear Black and Orange. It is also an early dismissal. They can come still come at 1:00 and could be picked up at 2:25 p.m. 
  • Friday November 1 - NO SCHOOL - Student-Led Conferences 
  • Friday November 15 – Pre-K Picture Day


God Bless!
