Christ is Risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! 


I hope that everybody have had a good and restful Spring Break! 

Certainly, the Pre-kindergartens are having such a great time learning. 

They are continuously learning and mastering the alphabet, numbers, colors and shapes. They are tracing, coloring, cutting and gluing. They are learning simple sight words. They love dancing and playing. We are practicing catching the ball.

They are also doing some fun spring arts and crafts. They will learn more about Spring season in the next coming weeks. Depending on the weather, we will try to do some walking around the playground for any sign of Spring.

Important Dates to Remember: 

  1. April 7, Wednesday - School Re-opens for PreK
  2. April 14, Wednesday - Pink Day 
  3. April 28, Wednesday - Cow Day - Wear Black, White or Brown
  4. April 30, Friday - Farmer Day - Wear Denim and Plaid 
Take Care. Stay safe and healthy.

March 2021

 


Spring is coming. Let us look forward to more beautiful days. 

The Pre-kindergartens are always looking forward to this season and we are excited about it. Certainly, the year is going by so fast. And the students in Pre-K are really growing up so fast just like the trees and flowers - soon they will have branches full of leaves and flowers. And just like the bees in the garden, the Pre-k's are 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:

They are going over their alphabet - uppercase and lowercase. They are learning to write both letters. They are also continuously learning the letters of their name. They have been practicing answering the questions with Yes and No. They will continue reviewing letters, numbers, shapes, patterns, alongside with the tracing, writing, coloring, cutting, and gluing. They also do crafts for different seasons or occasions. 

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

We are continuously making our school and our students safe and healthy. Continue to wash hands, hand sanitize and social distance. Don't come to school when feeling unwell. 

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

Friday, March 19 – In-Service NO SCHOOL

Monday March 29 - Friday April 2 – Spring Break

Wednesday April 7 - Classes Resume for Pre-Kindergarten

Take care always.

December

Hello December! 

Christmas is just around the corner. And when you are in Pre-K, everything is just going so fast. 

December is the season of Advent and Christmas. 

Advent means “coming” of Jesus.  During the Advent season we are awaiting and preparing for the arrival of Jesus.  Most of the activities that we are going to do in Pre-K are focused on Advent and Christmas.  We will be doing Christmas crafts and activities. As much as we want to sing Christmas songs we are not allowed to, that is why we will just try to make this Christmas a little bit special in our own little way. 

In the last couple of days, the Pre-k's have been busy practicing our two little Christmas poems for the Christmas Concert. They are entitled, "J-E-S-U-S" and "I'M A LITTLE SANTA". It will be a little different from what we were used to. This year's Christmas concert will be filmed in advance and a link will be sent to families on the evening of Wednesday, December 16th at 7:00 p.m..  We are very excited to stand on stage and share it with our families.  You can watch it with family on that night. 

Reminders: 
* Wednesday, December 9th - NO SCHOOL - IN SERVICE 
* Wednesday, December 16th - Virtual Christmas Concert 
* Friday, December 18th - Last day for this year, Early dismissal at 2:25 p.m. 
* December 19th - January 5th - CHRISTMAS BREAK 
* Wednesday, January 6th - Pre-K classes resumes 

Have a wonderful Christmas and a joy-filled New Year! 
Stay safe and healthy. 

Love, 

Mrs. Francisco

November

 


Hello November! 

It is the month of November already. It has been almost three months since we started our classes. The Pre-kindergartens are now getting the routine. We now also experienced the first snowfall and we have talked about the cold weather days and what do they need to wear on these cold weather days. 

They are making a very steady progress with the activities that we are doing - tracing, coloring, and glueing. We're doing a variety of activities about numbers, colors, shapes and letters. We are also doing different crafts and activities depending on the season or the holiday. So far, we have done fall, Thanksgiving and Halloween. 

These are some of the PreK's in action. 








I appreciate parents whose letting their children stay home if they are not feeling well. Please also be reminded that no hugs, high fives or other forms of physical contact. However, we can air high fives just to let them feel that we are still have this connection. A reminder to please let them wear proper clothing since it is now getting cold. 

Also, since Christmas is fast approaching and we are on a different situation right now. The school will be preparing a different way of presenting the Christmas concert. For the PreK's, I will be sending home an activity for our presentation on the Christmas Concert. 

Please let them bring healthy snacks only.  

Reminders: 

November 6 - Friday - No School Student-Led Conference 

November 13 - Friday - PreK picture day

November 20 - Friday - Administration Day - No School


Take care and Stay safe.

Hello Fall! 

I can't believe it is Fall. It has been three weeks since we started our classes. The students are slowly getting into the routine of coming, washing their hands, taking their shoes and backpacks, eating snacks, going to the bathroom and going for dismissal. They are so good. 

They are also making their steady progress with the activities that we are doing - tracing, coloring, and glueing. We're doing numbers, colors, shapes and letters. We are also doing fall crafts and activities. 

We will continue with learning new stuff and crafts. 

I appreciate parents whose letting their children stay home if they are not feeling well. Please also be reminded that no hugs, high fives or other forms of physical contact. Please let them wear proper clothing since it is now starting to get cold. 

Take care and Stay safe.
