Pre-K 3 News!!
JUAN DIEGO ACADEMY JANUARY 12, 2016
Here are our weekly announcements:
Wednesday, January 13th , there will be dismissal at 11:45 for Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4. It is a half-day professional development day for teachers.
Extended care will be available tomorrow for half-day.
Next Monday January 18th : NO SCHOOL due to Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday.
This coming Thursday we’ll start attending weekly mass; so please encourage your child to behave at Church. Also, please be sure they are in full uniform with sweater or vest. It’s important for them to learn how to respect our Lord by having good behavior.
WHAT WE ARE LEARNING THIS WEEK:
Religion: We are learning about Jesus’ Baptism by John the Baptist.
Literacy: We are also reviewing the letters M, P, S, T, L creating new words and of course, learning more Spanish vocabulary.
Math: We are working with geometric shapes as well as with numbers. We want to make sure that they have learned from 1 to 10 well in order to continue learning more numbers.
Writing: They are learning to identify their names and working on how to write them.
Fine Motor Skills: Since the start of this month we started to work more with scissors. If you can support them at home practicing cutting skills, that would be awesome.
Again a reminder for you: If you find some pasta letters for soup, please send a bag with your child. We have a pending project to do and we have not found the right size. We need Big Letter Pasta so you happen to find some during your grocery shopping trip, we will really appreciate that.
Mr. Gabe the 7th and 8th grade teacher sent out this letter to all teachers about Catholic School’s Week activities that will run from January 31st to February 6th.
Here's the Student Council Plan for Catholic Schools Week! There will be dress-up spirit days each day of the week so you can inform your students.
Monday: Pajama Day
Tuesday: Sports Day
Wednesday: Flip-Flop Day. This is a little tricky. Students are supposed to dress up like their teachers (boys can dress like Mr. Nolting, Mr. Ivan, or myself) and teachers dress like the students. In other words, we will be wearing HOLY ROSARY SCHOOL UNIFORMS. We need to tell the students asap so that they can begin scouting out possible outfits. More details for this in the coming weeks.
Thursday: Grandparents Day (co-led by Mr. Nolting) More information will be sent out as it arrives. Church day means FULL UNIFORM for all students.
Friday: COLOR WARS ASSEMBLY
Each grade will be given a specific color for them to represent their grade. They will participate in Religion trivias grouped by grade level (eg. k-1st, 2nd-3rd-4th, 5th-6th-7th-8th) where winning teams will receive some sort of classroom prize. Afterwards, there will be an all school assembly where grades must represent their color in several mini-games.
Here is the list of colors
Pre-K 3 -- Blue
Pre-K 4 -- Purple
Kindergarten -- Red
1st Grade -- Orange
2nd Grade -- Yellow
3rd Grade -- Pink
4th Grade -- Green
5th Grade -- Black
6th Grade -- White
7th Grade -- Gray
8th Grade -- Turquoise
Parents have a wonderful week! Go Hawks!!!
