Happy Thanksgiving

Friday November 17th will be our "feast day" in our classroom  We have been talking about friends and being thankful.  The kiddos made pilgrim and Indian hats to wear to our feast.

There will be NO SCHOOL at all next week. 

When we return we will hit the ground running with all things around the birth of Jesus.  What does Christmas really mean?

Have a beautiful thanksgiving.

First of November 2017

Happy Fall everyone.  This month we will be preparing for Thanksgiving.  So many things to be thankful for.

We are doing a food drive until the 17th. Pre-k was asked to bring "stuffing", but any food donation is welcome.

We will have our feast day on the 17th at 10:00 and 2:00. There is a sign up sheet on the window.  If you do not drop off or pick up please let me know and I can add you to the list.

There is NO SCHOOL the 20th thru the 24th. I will be at a conference on that Monday and Tuesday, and then with my family the rest of the week.

Have a blessed week!

Upcoming Spirit Night Fundraisers: Tuesday, November 14th: Freddy’s ( 21st & Tyler) 5:00-9:00pm         

Barnes and Noble:Share the magic of reading by purchasing a book or two at the 10th Annual Barnes & Noble Bookfair Saturday November 11th, 9 am to 9 pm, to benefit nine Catholic schools* located in Wichita, Coffeyville, and Newton. Our goal is to improve reading levels by providing new classroom and library books. Combined, these schools have at least 63% of their students receiving either free or reduced lunches.  They do not have financial means to purchase new library books.                                                                                                                           

Ways to help:

1.      Purchase a book for the school library. We have a great selection of books already for you to pick and buy for the school. We deliver.

2.      Make a purchase and tell any cashier you are with the book fair, we receive a percentage of the sale from all sales including coffee.  This will help purchase more books. So come get a jump on your Christmas shopping.  

3.      Unable to attend but would like to help?  You can mail a check to any of the following schools or St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School Fund – 424 N. Broadway Wichita, Ks.  67202 by November 4th.  Please indicate “Bookfair” on the memo line. Or donate on-line: https://give.catholicdioceseofwichita.org/pages/Drexel/book-donation

Come dressed as your favorite Princess or Superhero.   Activities include making your own cape or crown.  Have your picture taken with a Princess or Superhero.

Have a blessed day!

Hello Families

Your kiddos are settling in nicely. They already have the majority of the routine down and have all made new friends.

We are continuing to learn how to talk to god.  Our hands are in front of us, fingers pointed up.  Our bodies are still and our mind is calm. We are working on the Angel of God prayer, and the prayer before meals.  Along with any Catholic prayer, the sign of the cross comes in to play.  Please help them with this at home.

The morning pre-k will begin going to library next week.  They will go on Monday's at 8:30, they wont check out books right away, we will wait a few weeks, to let them get use to it.  The librarian is not here in the afternoons for our afternoon class.

You will start to see notes coming home in regards to fall fest.  Please let me know what questions you may have.

Thank you for sharing your most precious treasure with me.
