Dear Pre-K Families,
Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Preschool. Thank you for choosing to bring your child to our program. I am very excited and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to teach and get to know your child during this upcoming year. Please visit my blog at olmlancers.com Go to For Current Families, click on Classroom and OLM blogs. There you will find Pre-K with Mrs. Veronica. This blog will be the place to get information that pertains to our class. Please check in weekly.
I would like to welcome new families to my class and welcome back the many families that previously had older siblings in my class.
I know things are going to be a little different this year, but I am committed to making your child's experience the best that I can! I have been planning a lot of fun and exciting activities.
I am looking forward to your child's return to school. I will do my best to ring the bell promptly at 8:00am to begin morning prayer. Please have your child arrive prior to that so they will have time to get signed in and wash their hands. Please remember that our class will enter through the back of preschool from the playground side. Please be patient. I will be taking family pictures as you arrive, and there is a process to check in. Please remember to send in a water thermos. There will be a snack calendar on the sign in table.
This will be my thirteenth year in this pre-k classroom, and we have found it to be best for parents to share a hug and a kiss with your child, say goodbye and leave. When your child sees confidence in your eyes, they too will feel confident. If they are a little sad, usually by the time you get to your car they are already having fun. You are always welcome to call the preschool phone to check in.
The first week of school we will be busy learning the rules and routines of the classrooms. During the school year, we will focus on teaching curriculum, establishing routines and focusing on developmentally appropriate learning activities which are designed to nurture the total child. We believe that it is very important to have an open door policy with our students' families. If you should have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to contact me between the hours of 7:30 to 3:30 at (209) 722-6657 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am truly looking forward to this 2020-2021 school year. Together with you as your child's primary teacher, I hope to help plant the seeds to help facilitate your child to grow in their faith and learning experience.
