The preschool class is adjusting to being back after our Christmas Break. They were all happy to see each other again! We have been learning some Nursery Rhymes and practicing our numbers. The class has also been enjoying playing Alphabet Bingo! For the rest of January we will be talking about Community Helpers and our state of Kansas. This semester we are focusing on the virtue of generosity. Which for preschoolers means practicing sharing, taking turns, and giving to others in need.
Catholic Schools week starts Jan. 27- Feb. 2. There will be many fun activities happening that week, such as donuts and Juice on Monday Jan. 2 and a Talent Show on Wednesday Jan. 30. Keep your eye out for more notes with upcoming activities for that week.

You might want to mark your calendars for Tuesday February 5th. That will be an informational night for preschool and Kindergarten. If you have a child who is going to be entering Kindergarten this August, I encourage you to try to attend. If you know of any three year old children whose families are looking for preschool, please let them know about our meeting in February. I hope to have a full preschool next year!
