Dear Pre-K Families,
We had a fun week last week. We worked on review of letters Aa-Ee. We also talked about using our senses to investigate apples. We did some apple tasting and decided that our class liked Green Granny Smith apples the best,. Our dramatic play area has turned into an Apple Orchard. We also have been making "apple pie" with our apple scented play dough.
This week we will begin our new theme, Our Community. Our social emotional focus will be on responsibility. We will be learning about the role of community in our lives and the importance of good citizenship. Week 1 will be about places we go in our community. Our letter of the week will be letter Ff. We will also be learning about St. Francis. Thursday is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis is the patron saint of animals. On Friday, our school will celebrate with a school Mass at 11:00am outside. There will be a blessing of the animals. If your family would like to attend, you may take your pet to the mass and it will be blessed. Preschool will not be attending the Mass as it will be during our lunch. Please feel free to sign your child out if you would like to take them.
