PRESCHOOL NEWS

Happy New Year! 2017 sure went by fast. We are excited about the beginning of a new year in the Preschool classroom.

The four year old students are continuing to learn the letters of the alphabet. The letters are taught with the help of a reading readiness program called “Let’s Begin with the Letter People.” Each letter is taught with the help of a friend from Letter Land. We just met Mr. M who introduced his letter and taught the students about healthy foods to munch with their mouths. The students love this program!

The four year old students will be having a mid-year assessment for parent/teacher conferences in February. One of our goals with the students at this age is to make sure they are ready for their transition into Kindergarten.

The three year old students are finishing a unit on shapes. Their next units will focus on Nursery Rhymes and Health/Safety.

Keep an eye on the Preschool hallway to see the art projects this month. They focus on the season of winter and Valentine’s Day. We will be reading stories about cold weather and animals that hibernate.

Our goal is to provide an experience at Preschool where the students can gain confidence and grow both socially and emotionally. If you are interested in learning more about the Preschool program please contact the school office for information or to schedule a tour.

 

LUCKY LOTTERY

Lucky Lottery tickets are available for purchase at the Scrip table after Mass. These tickets are $25, and are valid from January 1, 2018 through June 30, 2018, based on the PA Daily number evening drawing. These make great Christmas gifts!

 

Yard Signs

We are looking for people to advertise our school by displaying our yard signs. If any parishioners live in a high traffic area or in a neighborhood with a lot of school age families and are willing to display our sign, please call the school office to get one.

 

Open Enrollment

As you read about our school on the web site each week, we hope that you begin to picture the value and scope of a Catholic School education. We are very proud of our parish school and invite you to enroll your child(ren) for the next school year. Please contact the school at (412) 771-4545 for your personal tour!
