MORNING DROP OFF: When dropping off your children please park in the angled parking lot and walk your child down to the classroom. I would prefer that the children arrive in the classroom starting at 7:30 every morning. Class starts at 8:00 with the children doing worksheets or other learning activities. If a child does not complete the work during this time, the teachers need to find time during work time to complete the activity. This does interfere with the planned projects and the child's planning time. As parents please have your child in the classroom by 8:00 so they have time to finish their work.
Homework is due on Wednesdays and Show & Tell is Thursdays.
Mass: The 4-K class will attend Mass every 1st and 3rd. Thursday of the month. Your child needs to be in the classroom at 7:30 on these days.
P.E.: The class will participate in Physical Education every Wednesday. Please make sure your child has tennis shoes for gym class.
Computer Lab: The children will be going to the Computer Lab every Tuesday. Please purchase headphones for your children for this class.
The children came up with 127 "C" words! Congratulations!! The story was "Curly Caterpillar". The children made Christmas cards, ornaments for the tree in the cafeteria, and Home and School helped the children make Christmas Gifts. We were unable to go to the Computer Lab this week because we practiced our songs in the Church for the concert. In Physical Education the class worked on their skills, jumping, skipping, and galloping. On Wednesday, each student made a birthday cake for Jesus! They all looked very yummy, enjoy!!
