Mrs. Katie Eakes -- Room 207
We had a great month of December in Kindergarten! We had so much fun on our Polar Express Day, Seeing Santa, Merry Moose shopping, and making all of your lovely ornaments!
We also met some new Super Kids from our reading program- Sal and Lily! We can tell you all about the sounds letters S and L make. We are also starting to blend sounds, which means we can take the sounds we know and put them together to sound out words!
In math, we are now learning about addition and subtraction stories. For example, if 3 fish are swimming and 2 more join them, how many fish are swimming in all?
HAPPY NEW YEAR ~ 2018
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
We hope everyone had a wonderful vacation!
We will be doing many winter themed crafts and activities as we immerse ourselves in this winter season.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
We will be learning about Martin Luther King Jr. and how he
tried to instill the values of PEACE and LOVE to all!
There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 15th as we observe
the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.
Please join us on Monday, January 29th in the Church at
9:00 a.m. for our School Mass celebrating

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
We will celebrate Catholic Schools Week from
Monday, January 29th until Friday, February 2nd.
Please watch for the schedule of events that will be coming

BOOK IT FORMS
If your child has not returned their completed December (or November) Book It Form, please send it in so we can add them to our Book It Chart.
The January Book It Forms were sent home with your child.

Once they return their form, they will receive a certificate good for a
FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut.
