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

Teacher's Comments


Pre-K just finished up their solar systems - find these in the hallway and ask what the names of the planets are! The kids can tell you through song, and also know a little bit about each planet (hottest, biggest, coldest, most rings, etc.) Instead of moving into gardening and insects, we will turn our focus to Holy Week and Easter and save planting for after break. The kids will be making crosses inspired by the "Jelly Bean" prayer, and hear stories from the Children's Bible corresponding to Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.

Invitations for Grandparents Day (May 1st) and May Show and Tell Calendars will go home this week, and please remember that the final round of Thursday hot lunch forms are due on or before this Friday, April 18.

The children continue to stay very busy in the classroom! Inset books, pin pushing books, and word books continue to be done and completed by many. All children are working on writing their name using lower case letters. Literacy games include 'memory' using upper case/lower case letters, letter sound bingo, separating objects based on beginning sound, etc. Math games include 'BUMP' where the children are using dice to practice correspondence counting and practice simple addition, number bingo (1-20), and arranging numbers 1-10 in the correct order. 

Please put this date on your calendar: on Thursday, May 22nd, at 6:30p, we will have an end of the year celebration. For this event each student may bring 2 adult guests - we meet in the classroom, venture to Jubilee Hall for a short presentation, and end back in the classroom. We ask that NO siblings come to this event - thanks!

Thank you to Katie Lovejoy for sending out a sign up genuis re Wednesday volunteers. Please remember that classroom volunteers are required to fill out a background check and take the Archdiocese required "Called to Protect" class. Folks who have taken this before only need to take an online refresher course. Please visit this website for details: http://seattle.setanet.org/classes.php. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about this!

Weekly specialists will continue during the second half of the school year: PE with Mrs. Christensen on Tuesdays, Library with Mrs. Jez on Wednesdays, Music and Movement with Mrs. Flannegan on Thursdays, and Second Step with Ms. Katie on Thursdays. 

The new gym is beautiful and Pre-K students are now using it on Tuesdays for PE - please, please send your kiddo to school in tennis shoes only on Tuesday.

Please let me know if you have questions about anything!
