It was great seeing all the smiling faces upon returning from Easter Break!

We have been able to play again outside now that it is becoming warmer.  The children love to play on the playground and to observe signs of Spring.

Our letters this month: Pp, Qq, Rr

We will be participating with the entire school on Earth Day.  We will turn off our lights and electronics in the morning, make a bird feeder, plant plants, clean up the school, and sing a song at the assembly. The children can dress in play clothes that may get dirty during our activities.


We began the month by having a lot of fun celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday. We made " The Cat in the Hat" head bands, tasted green eggs and ham, decorated our doors and hallway, and listened to many books!

Our themes this month are Weather, St. Patrick's Day, and Community Helpers.

We will complete many activities to help us learn the letters Ll, Mm, Nn, Oo, and Pp.

We welcome our new friend Gianna to our class!



On Thursday, Feb. 12th, the children may bring in Valentine cards for their classmates.  Please do not send in any products containing nuts.

Tuesday we will be visiting the Book Fair during our library time.


Happy New Year!

We have many exciting things planned for this month. We will complete several winter activities.  We will paint winter scenes and snowmen, make bird feeders, decorate mittens, learn finger plays and songs about winter, and make home made play dough.

We have begun identifying our letters. Each week we practice a new letter and complete many activities to help use recognize the letter.  For each letter we make a few crafts that begin with the letter we are working on.

A- astronaut, alligator, apple

B- bear, basket, boat

C- Christmas, caterpillar

D- dinosaur, dog

E- eagle, elephant

F- frog, fish, fox


We have learned so much.  We enjoy listening to stories, playing in the sand box, building with blocks, stringing beads, painting, playing with balls, puzzles, making things with play dough, practice writing on the white board, playing in the kitchen, puppets, dolls, cars, and singing songs and acting out our movement activities.


January events:

19th- no school

23rd- dress down day "Dress up"; danceathon 

25th- 11a.m. Catholic Schools Week Mass at Holy Family; 12-2p.m. Open House

27th- Book Fair


This month our themes are: seasons, fall harvest, family, and Thanksgiving.  Some of the skills we are focusing on are: tearing, cutting, gluing, holding a pencil correctly, tracing lines, identifying names, counting to 30, identifying numbers 0-5, identifying the beginning, middle, and ending of a story, saying the Our Father and Hail Mary Prayer.


We have finished our first reading theme " Good Morning, Good Night" and have begun our second theme "What's the Weather". Our faith focus in Religion is that God knows and loves each one of us by name, God created the world, and God created people to share in his love.


Some of our favorite activities are: playing in the sand box, playing with play dough, painting, singing, dancing, putting on puppet shows, and playing inside and outside.
