Kindergarten Update

Dear Parents, April 8,2022

This past week the students had a busy week preparing for their presentation of “The Story of Moses.” We will finish up this week. In addition,the students have been learning about the meaning of Holy Week and Easter.  The link will be sent out so that you can view the story as well.  Palm Sunday is this Sunday!  We would love to see you at one of the many Mass opportunities!  Holy Week has so many great opportunities for prayer experiences that support what your children have been learning.  Here is the parish bulletin with the Mass times and events for Holy Week (scroll to the last page):  SPNSA Bulletin

As Spring Fever has hit our Kindergarten class with the excitement of Easter, Easter vacation and better weather, we have spent a lot of time reminding students of the six steps for listening and the SLE’s (respectful, responsible, reverent, life-long learner).  It is common at this time of year for students to get excited and need these reminders, especially since this is the first “normal” spring for them in two years!  We will explicitly teach these when we return from break so that the remaining weeks will be focused behaviorally so that we can stay on track for our academic goals.  We appreciate your partnership in enforcing this at home and having conversations daily with your child about listening.

At Mass on Wednesday Fr. Joel talked about the importance of prayer.  He brought each student the Angel of God Prayer on a beautiful laminated prayer card.  They were so excited and honored to receive the gift.  Coincidentally, this is the last prayer that we teach and memorize as part of the K Religion curriculum.

All of the students did a FABULOUS job on their books that they wrote for the month of March homework.  All of the students will have an opportunity to read and share their books with the class. We will finish up this week.

There will be no SuperKid next week. Thank you to Kailyn for sharing your things.

There also will be no Friday folders next week.
