Kindergarten Website Update
Happy New Year and welcome back! There is a lot happening this month as we prepare for Catholic Schools Week which occurs at the end of January. It is a special time for Catholic Schools where we celebrate our students, community, cultures, academics, faculty and staff. Details and more information for this special week will be provided on the St. Philip Neri website.
We will begin our year by adding a “Guesstimation Jar” to our curriculum. One student per week will take home a large jar which they will fill with “like” items. They will return it to school and the students will “guesstimate” how many items are in the jar! No prizes will be given but it will be fun to see how close the students can guess. We will begin next week.
Our Super Kid this week is Marco.
Rosie will go home with Sybil.
