Welcome to Mrs. Veronica and Mrs. Hermosillo's pre-k class. We are very excited and looking forward to getting to know our students and their families! This will be my 11th year in this pre-k classroom. This year I am very excited to announce that we have a new curriculum. I will share more about it next week. There are many new and exciting components to it that will include the ability for you and your child to have access to online stories and other great information. We will also be teaching your child a foreign language that you will be able to choose. There are so many fun things to look forward to this year and we feel blessed to be able to share them with you!
It was so nice to meet so many of you last week on Meet The Teacher Night. I hope you enjoyed touring the classroom. We handed out a few things that night and if you were not able to attend they will be inside your child's cubby. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a teacher blog for our class and you can access it at olmlancers.com. Click on the three bars and click on For Current OLM Families. Click on classroom and OLM blogs. There you will find a bar that says Pre-k with Mrs. Veronica and Mrs. Hermosillo. They are updated weekly.
Our first week of school we will be busy learning the rules and routines of the classrooms. Please do not send backpacks to school as they are not necessary for preschool, and unfortunately we do not have storage space for them. Your child will need a school supply box that is big enough for all the required supplies to fit inside and be easy for your child to get in and out of. The small standard school box is too small. It is very important to get the correct school glue for your child. It is Crayola school glue. It is available at Michael's and Hobby Lobby. This glue does not get clogged and is very easy for the children to use. The Elmer's twist up glue gets clogged and is very frustrating to the children.
Children that stay past 11:30 for lunch should bring a lunch. We do have a microwave and can warm things up for them. Please pack cool packs inside as we do not have storage inside the refrigerator for lunch bags.
On the first day of school it is best to share a hug and kiss with your child, say goodbye and leave the classroom. We will begin at 8am and we will have a fun day!
Thank you for bringing your child to Our Lady of Mercy Preschool! We look forward to a super year!
