Welcome to Saint Joseph Preschool. It is always nice to see so many past and present Saint Joseph families at the walk thrus, orientations, and parent meetings. And we are just that, a preschool family. We play, we learn, and we grow together. I am looking forward to having a great year of fun and learning with your child. If at any time you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.
This year we have a new Religion series called, “Allelu! Growing and Celebrating with Jesus”. We will begin with “New faces and New Places”, and then move on to “All the World Says. God is Great!” The children will express their understanding that God made the world and everything that God made shows us that he is great.
School times for 2017-18 school year. Class times are 12:15-2:45. Drop off times are 12:05-12:15 and pick up times 2:45-2:55.
A lot of fantastic things happen in March. We will begin the month learning about Saint Patrick, Ireland, and the color green, through songs, finger plays, stories, and art projects.
Spring also begins in March, we will be taking spring walks and going outside as the weather permits.
We will also be celebrating Easter. Our party is scheduled for Tuesday, March 27th at 1:30 pm. Parent helpers are welcome. We will be having an Easter Egg Hunt during our party, so we will need some volunteers to help hide the eggs for the children. Donations of filled plastic eggs are appreciated. If you would like to donate some filled eggs, please have them to the preschool no later than Tuesday, March 20th.
