February Newsletter

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we welcome February, we also welcome another fun filled month of learning for your little one! This month we will first and foremost, continue growing in our faith as we learn all about St. Valentine and the Lenten season. Other topics that will be covered include dental hygiene, measurement, President’s Day, and the concept of more or less as we will also start our work on simple addition.

Additionally, we will practice our story elements of author, character, and setting and of course continue learning our numbers (1-2 a week), letters (1 each week), and sight words (2-3 each week).

February is also very special for our Pre-K family, as we will be celebrating our 100th day of school together! I cannot believe how quickly the year is going! Their continued growth and hard work of each of your children truly makes me very proud to be their teacher!

If you have any questions or concerns, as always, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

All the best,  

Ms. Aceste

The cutest little piggies you ever did see

To work on our early literacy and science skills Pre-K4 109 did a book study and STEM challenge on the story the “Three Little Pigs.” We became the most adorable class of little piggies by working in groups to create a house out of Dots candy and toothpicks. The challenge was to make it sturdy enough to stand up to the huffing and puffing of the big bad hairdyer wolf! We did not let him in, not by the hair on our chiney chin chins!

2020 is here and the first month promises to be one full of great fun and learning! This month we will be completing our first author study and learn about fiction vs non fiction.

As always, we will also be working on our letters, sounds, and numbers. Most importantly, however, we will continue growing in our faith as we review the Epiphany, learn about the first sacrament, and celebrate Catholic Schools week.
