Dear Pre-K families,
Welcome back from winter break, we hope you enjoyed some nice time with your family. We are in week 3 of our theme Imagine it, Make it. This week our Big Idea is: I can use different materials to make new things. I can invent things. This week, our focus will be on Things We Build. We will be engaging in a lot of story extension activities around the story of The Three Little Pigs. Our letter for this week will be Oo, We will continue to work on rhyming, and story retelling. We will also continue with show and tell.
We will continue to talk about imagination. creativity, and being the best 'me' that I can be. We are encouraging them to imagine it, dream about it, create it and make it. I found a fun song on YouTube that the children really enjoyed that is encouraging. Sesame Street Will.i.am Sings "What I am". We will also be talking about some famous inventors and people that inspire us.
Thank you for replenishing your child's school supply box. If you were not able to send it back, please send it in by the end of the week. I will continue to assess the children in preparation of mid-year parent teacher conferences. Sign ups are posted in the classroom. If you are in need of additional time slots, please contact me, I am happy to make arrangements with you. Kindergarten informational night is this Wednesday, February 27th at 6:00pm in the school auditorium. Please plan to attend even if you are not sure if your child will be attending OLM next year. They usually will have a drawing for a free registration fee. This Sunday, we will celebrate an OLM school Mass at St. Patrick's Church during the 1:00pm Mass. If your family attends, please have your child wear their OLM t-shirt to represent our school.
Next week we will begin the season of Lent. Lent will begin on Ash Wednesday, March 6th. Mass will begin at 8:15am in the school auditorium and ashes will be distributed at the end. If your child attends school on Wednesdays, we will be attending the Ash Wednesday Mass. Family members are always welcome to attend.
