WELCOME TO PRE-K
Hello and welcome to our Pre-K Class Page, where you will find information on all the exciting things we will be working on this year.   My name is Patricia Carter and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year.
My email address is:pcarter5632@stpeterspw.org  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns.

Reminders/Important Information:     
PLEASE NOTE: 
-As we  are now in the season of spring, the older grade children are excited, once again,  to be able to grow their own flowers/plants in the gardens in front of the school.  We are asked to always be respectful of these plantings.  As the Little Learner children are dismissed and anxious to run around with their friends, please help us in keeping them out of the gardens  and walking/running through the flowers/plants.  As always, we thank you for your support!  

Gentle Reminder FOR ALL OUR 11:30 Monday and Friday Dismissal children: I know as the weather is getting nicer, your children may ask to play in our school playground at their 11:30 dismissal.  However, we kindly ask that you please do not bring them to the school playground at that time, as this is our Kindergarten's regularly scheduled recess period, as well as our Pre-Kindergarten children's recess time to play. It becomes very crowded and is difficult for the teachers in charge to keep track of who is with who, etc.  We thank you for your cooperation with this.


**On Friday, June 1 we will be attending 8:30 Mass.  We ask that your child arrives to school between 8:00-8:15 please.  Have them use the bathroom before leaving the house.  It is so important that they arrive at school on time so that we can be seated at Mass before the 8:30 start.  Thank you!!

**Also on Friday June 1 Dismissal is at 11:30 for all Pre-Kindergarten. Parents are encouraged to take their child to Manorhaven Park for a "playdate" with fellow classmates.  Bring your own lunch/snacks to the park and stay as short or long as you wish.  It should be a fun time. Although teachers/aides will be there for some of the time (as we need to return to school for a faculty meeting) parents are responsible for the safety of their child while at the park.  Thank you.

Week of May 28, 2018  No School on Monday, May 28 for Observance of Memorial Day!  See you on Tuesday!

In Math we will be starting Module 5, counting roups of ten and ones up to 20 and introducing simple addition and subtraction stories.

Exciting News:  All ten of our Painted Lady Butterflies came out of their chrysalises this week and both classes watched as we released them on Thursday in our school gardens.  The children were so excited!!  Check out our pictures under photos on this class page!

We continue learning more about Mary, Jesus' mother and our Spiritual Mother. We will continue praying the Lord's Prayer, but will also be saying the Hail Mary.  We also always talk about Jesus' love for us and how he wants us to show love and compassion toward each other.  To help the children understand this better, as you know, a few weeks back we read the story
Have You Filled a Bucket Today? and we continue to refer to ways we can and should "fill other people's buckets" each day during circle time, center time, snack/lunch, and outside play.  We "fill people's buckets" by our kind and thoughtful actions and we "empty buckets" when we forget to make good choices and are unkind to others. 

We continue to work hard on practicing for our graduation. Graduation, which is on June 13. This is the last day of school for the Pre-K children.

Last week was our last Star of the Week, ending with Buckley.  It has been a fun year learning about all our classroom friends.  

Reminders: Please send in an extra outfit, including socks, in case of a bathroom or spilling accident.  Make sure it is appropriate for the season and school. Please place in a small bag and label all items. Please also make sure you put your child's name on all sweaters, coats, hats, etc.  Thank you!!
