Kindergarten

January 18th-22nd

This week, we continued to learn about more celebrations by talking about our own Baptism! The children were so happy to learn that when they got baptized, they became a part of God’s family. We even acted out a Baptism, by taking on the role of different people present at this special sacrament!

Today, we also recognized Black Shirt Day in support of anti-racism. The students watched a Sesame Street video about how it’s wrong to treat people unfairly because of the colour of their skin. We also read a story called It’s Okay to Be Different by Todd Parr and had a class discussion about how God made us all differently and that we are special and unique.
