Dear Pre-K families,
We are in week 4 of our theme Growing up Healthy. The children have been exploring the concept of everyday foods vs sometimes foods as we have been learning about eating well. This week we will be talking about being safe. We will discuss being safe in our environments and talk about rules that keep us safe. This is a review week for letters Aa - Ss. We will continue to learn about Lent and learn the Stations of the Cross as we prepare for Easter. Last week, we finished sanding and nailing our wood crosses. This week, we will paint them and at Mass on Friday, we will have the priest bless them. During Holy Week, we will carry our crosses as we pray the Stations of the Cross in the back play yard.
This week, on Thursday, we will go down to the Auditorium to watch the 8th graders perform their 8th grade show. That morning is also spring picture day will the live bunnies. If you would like your child to take pictures, please see one of the teachers for the picture packet. Only children with completed picture packets will go down to take pictures.
On Saturday, our school will be participating in Relay for Life which will take place at Merced College. We will have booth and will host Kid's Camp. We will continue to collect money to support this event. If your child would like to contribute, we are collecting pennies and dimes. All other monetary contributions are also accepted and appreciated. On Friday, we will wear purple and after Mass we will have our own mini Relay for Life event at our school. We will also have a Bark for Life if you would like to enter your family dog to participate.
