Dear parents/guardians of our wonderful preschoolers,
It is amazing to me that Thanksgiving is already upon us. My four months at St. Joseph’s had been very busy, but equally rewarding. I especially love seeing our younger children develop in their learning situation. I am writing to give you some initial information about our kindergarten program. We have two wonderful and experienced kindergarten teachers. This year we added full time teacher assistants. Therefore, there are always at least two adults with the children. Also, teaching the class are specialists in art, music, technology, and physical education. This year we are revising part of our developmental program to have a more pronounced hands-on component. We have purchased a great deal of new materials to address this goal. You will find the program to be extremely rich in pre grade one skills in reading, handwriting, and mathematics. Because there seems to be quite a bit of interest in our kindergarten this year, we are inviting parents to two drop in visitations on December 2nd and 9th from 8:15 - 9:30 AM. Come visit our kindergarten sessions, have a cup of coffee, and find out what we have to offer. Other times will be accommodated. If you would like to save a seat in any case, please return the enclosed intention sheet. After the holidays, we shall send confirmation information. We shall also be hosting families and our preschoolers during Catholic Schools Week. Pre-Registration Form
Hope to see you soon,
Jim Deveney, Principal
