Last week we began our last theme, Ready For Kindergarten and Moving on. It has been such an amazing year. The children have grown up so much. I have enjoyed watching them build their friendships together. We have been talking about their accomplishments throughout the year and what it will be like next year in kindergarten. We are continuing to review letters and numbers as well as rhyming, blending and ending sounds. We learned about how Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three small children as we celebrated her feast day on May 13th. If you would like to watch the children's version of the story, I posted it on Seesaw last week.
This week, we will review the Rosary, review making patterns and talk about making friends in kindergarten. We will be attending Mass outside on Friday, May 21st. If your child attends school on Friday, please have them arrive before 7:55am so that they have a chance to use the bathroom before we leave for mass. Also, please have them wear their blue OLM t-shirt.
Next week will be our last week of preschool. We will read some special books and do fun things that the kiddos enjoy. We will celebrate children that have summer birthdays on Wednesday, May 26th with a special snack. The 2020-2021 preschool year will conclude on Thursday, May 27th.
It seems as though the mosquitos are back. Please apply mosquito repellent to your child before they come to school.

It has truly been a pleasure to teach your children this year. Thank you so much for your support throughout. May God bless your families and your children as they enter kindergarten.
May is upon us!! We have almost made it through the year. We are in the last week of our Growing and Changing theme. This past week, we talked about eating healthy. We talked about foods that are everyday foods and foods that are sometimes foods. We learned about Myplate and how to fill our plate with proper portions. We also began Numbers Bootcamp. We are doing 20 days of numbers!! Yes, the Silly hats are back and the kiddos love them! We had a fun time learning about Noah’s Ark. We made a fun ark craft and learned that the Lord watches over all who love him. We also had a fire drill and an earthquake drill. Some of the kiddos didn’t enjoy the loud noise of the fire alarm, but they thought it was pretty fun to get under the tables.
This week, we will be learning about how plants grow and have an opportunity to watch something grow. We will continue to learn about numbers. We will also continue to review our letters and sounds. Very exciting news!! Preschool will be attending the all-school mass on Friday, May7th. This is the mass where we honor Mother Mary during the May crowning. If your child attends school on Friday, they will need to be at school prior to 8:00am so they can go to the bathroom and wash hands before we leave for mass. We will leave at 8:05. We will also be working on a special Mother’s day project and something to recognize our grandparents.
