December 11 - 15

Hi Kinder Families,

This week, we started our Journal Writing! The children were very excited to show their writing skills! We also started to learn and discuss our Virtue of the Month, Generosity. We learned about a saint who best showed how to be generous, St. Nicholas, also known as Santa Claus. We learned that Santa Claus follows the work of St. Nicholas, being generous and leaving gifts for those in need! We're looking forward to another great week that includes leading assembly with our Grade 6 Buddies this coming Friday!
