The after school program is held in the Cafeteria.

THRILLED TO BE THREE!

Parents, I can't believe it is May already!! The year has gone by so quick. I will be doing end of the year assessments, and they should go home by the first week in June. Our last day of school is Thursday June 6th, it is a full day and after-school care is available that day. We will be having pizza and ice cream for our last day, more information will go home as it gets closer.

We will be finishing up our letters of the alphabet and reviewing our numbers. Most of my friends have been working really hard at writing their names, and they look great!! It has been such a joy to watch your children learn and  grow this year.

Important Dates

 

Start of the Year Information: 


We request that each family bring in 2 disinfecting wipes (for tabletops), 2 boxes of tissues, 2 baby wipes, 1 flushable wipes and 1 paper towel.  We want to try to keep germs at bay! We could also use napkins, and plastic utensils, throughout the year. We are always in need of "stuff" for our projects. Many items can be found around the home, others at craft/dollar type stores. Some items we use often are: glue sticks, coffee filters, seasonal stickers, cotton balls, glitter, googly eyes, feathers, paper plates. Donations are always appreciated. Thank you!!

 

Welcome to the OLV Angels Preschool -3 home page


What your child should bring to school:

 Please clearly put your child's name on all belongings- including mat cover

Backpack – Please be sure it's clearly labeled with your child's name and large enough to hold 8.5 x 11papers. In the backpack should be a snack, lunch, water bottle and a folder (which we will provide). Children do not need to bring their own school supplies, and we ask that you do not send in toys from home, they sometimes get misplaced, and we do have many toys to play with!

Two complete change of clothes-  All children in this program must be potty-trained, however, we completely understand that accidents  happen.  The change of clothes comes in handy for spills also!  We will keep these sets of clothes in your child’s cubby and will send home any soiled clothes in a plastic bag to be replaced on your child’s next school day.

Mat Cover – We have mats for each child for rest-time. Please send in a mat cover (crib sheets fit perfectly). If your child likes to rest with a small stuffed animal, (or blanket in the winter months) you may send that  along,  we  just ask that it fits inside their cubby (no pillows please). We send these covers home periodically to be cleaned.  If you prefer to take it home at the end of each week, just let us know!

Labeled water bottle - We go outside daily and it's important that the children stay hydrated especially with the warm weather we sometimes have in the early fall and spring. Thank you!

Snack -  Please send a healthy snack each day along with a drink in a bag separate from the lunch box (we eat snack in the morning). If you do not want to send a separate bag for snack please let your child know what choice is for snack.We recommend fruit, veggies, yogurt, cheese, crackers…these healthy choices help keep children focused and energized for their busy school day!  

Lunch – We eat lunch in our classroom, not in the cafeteria. We have found the children enjoy the comfort and quiet of the classroom!  If you prefer to buy a school lunch, the menu will be posted on the school website.  We recommend you print that out and circle the days you are buying to help keep track of which days to send a lunch for your child. We will send a lunch envelope home on Mondays which must be returned by Friday to order lunch for the following week.  

OTHER INFORMATION

Scholastic Book Orders – Each month we will be sending home book orders for you to look through. Orders can be placed on-line, or by check.  Each time you place an order on-line the classroom receives a free book.  We always appreciate you participating in this program.

Curriculum – During Religion, the children will learn about God's creation and  prayer.

 Through instruction, music, movement and "play" the children will explore:

Social and Emotional Development

Language and Communication Skills

Emergent Literacy 

Math and Science

Social Studies

Art and Music

Technology

Physical Development

There will be 2 assessments done throughout the year on your child so that we may evaluate your child's progress, one in January, and a final evaluation at the end of the year.
