Upcoming News

We have started a new Creative Curriculum unit, the ball/sports study. We discussed what we like to play and investigated what is used to play those sports/games.  We brainstormed what we thought balls are used for and made of. We read a story that helped determine if what we thought was true.

Catholic Schools Week is approaching.  We celebrate our Catholic education with a variety of activities and spirit week. Check out the spirit days and do your best to participate :)

There will bee two field trips during this week for four year old preschool. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.   If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.  There will be separate permission slips for each field trip.

The green field trip permission slip for the Nursing home visit has already been sent home. 

A golden yellow permission slip is being sent home today for the all day skating field trip. If you have already paid for this field trip, please sign and return the form. Students will need a sack lunch with a drink.

PLEASE send payment and permission slips at the same time.

November Things

Four year old preschool:
This week has been so fun and exciting! Check out our Veteran’s Day artwork in the hallway. We have read different stories this week about Veteran’s Day.  The Ramps and Pathways STEM kit continues to be a huge hit. During four year old preschool, it was very exciting to have Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg and other members visit our classroom to see how we used the STEM scale up at a preschool level.  There was a lot of people in the room at one time! I am beyond impressed with how well our class demonstrated their knowledge. The month of November we will focus on Thanksgiving.  

* Disguise a Turkey projects are due back on Tuesday Nov. 15.  
* We will be having a Thanksgiving Feast with kindergarten on Tuesday Nov 21. More information to follow.
