We are writing more and more every day. It is important that the Kindergarteners know their sight words and alphabet sounds (phonics). Review these daily. Also, please help your child practice at home writing simple sentences (ex. I see a rainbow. It is big. It is pretty. I like the rainbow.) Concentrate on how the word sounds and use "Just for now" spelling.
OLM Annual Auction:
The auction is January 27th. It is always a fun night and a great opportunity to support our school.
Kindergarten Auction Class Project: Thank you to all those who have sent in $20 to help fund this project. If you forgot to send in your money you can still send it in! Please send it in ASAP.
Drivers Needed for Catholic Schools Week:
Parents will drop off their children at St. Patrick's Church on Friday, February 2nd. We will need drivers to bring us back to school after Mass. This counts for service hours. You must have attended the safe environment meeting, cleared fingerprints and turn in driving forms into the office.
Catholic Schools Week:
A full list of activities for Catholic Schools Week will be coming home soon. January 28th will kick off Catholic Schools Week. Mass is at St. Patrick's Church at 9am. Make sure your child wears their school uniform to the Mass if they are attending.
Please follow the dress code as outlined in the parent handbook. Some items that are worn are not acceptable. Remember, leggings are not allowed only socks and tights are acceptable. Boots are not part of the dress code.
