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

Pre-K News

Pre-K is a fun and exciting adventure for your child and the whole family.  We want this Pre-K experience to be enjoyable and successful in every way.  Carolyn and I are delighted to be working with your children and look forward to developing a strong relationship with your child as well as open communication and collaboration with our Pre-K families.

The past few weeks the children have explored the classroom and established our routine. We have reaquainted with old friends and met new ones. Last week we began our P.E. class with Mrs. Christensen, met with our librarian, Mrs. Jezz, had music with Mrs. V., a.k.a. Mrs. Vanderford and had our weekly visit with Mrs. Denniston our school counselor. We also met two important people in our school as we were walking in the hallway...Fr. Tim and Mr. McGovern.  They both stopped to chat and meet with all the kids.

September begins by exploring the many ways your children are different and special. Thank you for providing the baby picture, current picture, family picture and clues about your child. This is a fun way for all to get to know one another.

Another theme for September is community helpers with special emphasis on fire safety including a trip to our local fire station.  Our field trip to Fire Station 40 was on Tuesday this week and turned out to be pleasant as we dodged the rain and were able to have a complete visit before the firefighters headed out to do their school inspections!  As we learn about the many different hats that our community helpers wear, we will be making our own fire fighter hats. On Thursday, September 28th, please bring a favorite hat to school for Hat Day!

Thank you to Christie Goforth who has volunteered to be our room parent this year. You will be hearing more from Christie later.
Thanks to Mary F., Peggy S., and Angie W. who helped chaperone on our field trip.
Thank you to Peggy S. for making our playdough for October.
