Welcome to Saint Joseph Preschool. It was nice to see so many past and present Saint Joseph families and the walk thru and parent information meeting. 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. My door is always open.
The first few days of class we will be working on learning the classroom rules and routines. We will play outside, learn new songs, introduce the “Pledge of Allegiance”, and learn the days of the week. Along with getting to know our new Preschool family, our classmates. The rest of the month we will focus on learning the different shapes, through games, stories, and art projects. We will also learn “The Shape Song”.
Please not that we have Music every Friday in either the music room or the classroom with Mrs. Agostin. Gym is on Wednesdays in the big gym, outside, or in the classroom.
In Religion we will . . .
* learn about ourselves, the world, and God, who made everything
* learn about the Golden Rule – “Do unto others as you would have them don into you”.
Simply put, “Just be nice”.
* be learning a monthly prayer (a copy will be provided). Please practice this prayer with
your child beginning and ending with the sign of the cross
