Dear Pre-K Families,
We had such a fun week getting to know each other. We have started with our new social emotional curriculum from Second Step. Some welcome letters were sent home with parent information and home links. I hope you will find it helpful. The first week was about welcoming friends and introducing ourselves to others. This week we will be learning about the listening rules. We have also been very busy learning how to play in our centers. We will continue to open new centers daily.
This week we will also continue to read social stories that help us to follow the classroom rules. We will talk about being a Super Friend and introduce the Bible. We have been learning how to hold our crayon and working on pre-writing skills. We will be learning how to use our school supply box as we learn scissor safety and proper ways to use glue. We will begin introducing nursery rhymes starting with Humpty Dumpty and also begin Friend of the Day. Friend of the Day is where we cheer a new friend's name each day and the class writes that child's name. It is a fun activity and helps us to recognize names as well as practice writing letters and letter direction.
Last week, the family envelope was sent home. Please go through the paper work and return the envelope with any papers you need to send back. You can hand it to a teacher or Mrs. Mary.
Please remember that I am here to help so if you have any questions or concerns please contact me or email me at email@example.com

Dear Pre-K Families,
Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Preschool. Thank you for choosing to bring your child to our program. We are very excited and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to teach and get to know your child during this upcoming year. Please visit my blog at olmlancers.com Go to For Current Families, click on Classroom and OLM blogs. There you will find Pre-K with Mrs. Veronica. This blog will be the place to get information that pertains to our class. Please check in weekly.
Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend 1st conferences. It was so nice to meet with you and it was a wonderful way to start our school year off. If you were not able to attend and would like a meeting time, please let me know. I am happy to meet with you. Thank you to all that were also able to attend back to school night. It was fun to see the children exploring the classroom.
Mrs. Romero and I are looking forward to your child's first day of school. The classroom opens at 7:50am and I will ring the bell promptly at 8:00am. This will be my twelfth year in this pre-k classroom and we have found it to be best for parents to share a hug and a kiss with your child, say goodbye and leave the classroom. When your child sees confidence in your eyes, they too will feel confident. If they are a little sad, usually by the time you get to your car they are already having fun. You are always welcome to call the preschool phone to check in.
The first week of school we will be busy learning the rules and routines of the classrooms. During the school year, we will focus on teaching curriculum, establishing routines and focusing on developmentally appropriate learning activities which are designed to nurture the total child. We believe that it is very important to have an open door policy with our students' families. If you should have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to contact me between the hours of 7:30 to 3:30 at (209) 722-6657 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am truly looking forward to this 2019-2020 school year. Together with you as your child's primary teacher, I hope to help plant the seeds to help facilitate your child to grow in their faith and learning experience.
