“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments


Thank you for attending Curriculum Night this past week! It was great to see everyone who could make it - I understand there is a lot going on right now with the start of school; for anyone that was not able to attend, please let me know if you would like to meet briefly any day this week following dismissal at 12:30 - thanks!

Week 4 includes our trip to the Fire Station on Wednesday. Please send your child to school in a pair of shoes they can comfortably walk in, and a rain jacket - thanks!

In the classroom this week our theme is fire safety and community helpers. The children have been learning what fire fighters wear to protect themselves, how to "stop, drop and roll," and we had our second fire drill of the year this past week! We will also begin making our "family hands" banners this week - watch for these to be displayed in the classroom!

We have begun playing games where the children are seperating and identifying objects based on beginning sounds, and have started work with numeral identification and one-to-one correspondence counting.

In your child's file you will find a "Superstar" list for the year, with each child's specail week. Please let me know if the week conflicts with any preexisting plans - we can always move things around!

The Thursday Hot Lunch program begins this week (Sept 25). This is open to all students, and is a favorite day of the week for many! Order forms have been attached to the past two Wednesday newsletters from Kathy Boyle; forms were due on Friday, but can still be turned in this week (students would just miss this coming Thursday's lunch, and need to include a $5 late fee :) Please let me know if you have any questions!

Our Lady of the Lake is holding it's first "Orange Ruler Fun Run" this fall (Oct 8.) This is a jog-a-thon type fundraiser - an envelope for donations was sent home on Curriculum night; it is due back to OLL on Oct 1st. Please let me know if you have any questions - thank you!

Please remember to check your child's file outside the classroom door daily.

Mrs. Breysse and I would like to welcome parents who are interested in volunteering into the classroom on Tuesday mornings. Please remember that volunteers are required to fill out a background check and complete the "Called to Protect" course. To accomodate time for both of these requirements, a classroom volunteer sign up will be sent out to begin the end of September - thanks!

I would like to thank Jaycee Barrett and Heather Sorenson for their role as room parents this year!

Please let me know if you have questions about anything!
