Dear Pre-k Families,
This past week, we had a-lot of fun with our apple orchard. October is the month of the rosary. We have been learning about praying the rosary. We have also began making our own rosary. This week, we will be sending home a bag with information on how your family can pray the rosary. We invite your family to pray the rosary and add any prayer intensions to our prayer book. Every night, a different child will bring home the bag. Please return it the next day so that another student can take it home the next day. On the 15th, we will make a chalk rosary on the ground in the back circle with our 5th grade reading buddies. On the 16th, the entire school will gather around it and pray the rosary together.
On Friday, the school celebrated the feast of St. Frances. St. Frances is the patron saint for animals. Father blessed the animals after mass. We started to learn about St. Frances and will continue to learn about him this week.
We have also started learning about fire safety and calling 911. We will have a visit from the fire department later in the month.
We are in week 2 of our theme Our Community - People we meet. The Big Idea is The workers in my community help everyone. This week the children will learn about the role of the community in their lives and the importance of good citizenship. Our social emotional focus is on responsibility. We will be learning about the letter Gg. We have been talking about being responsibly at home and at school. Many of the children have shared how they are responsible at home and the chores that they do to help our their family.
Please remember that their is no school on this Friday, October 12th. The entire school will be closed.
Parent Teacher conferences are the week of Oct 22nd. Please sign up if you have not already. There are sign ups for the Halloween carnival posted.
