May 1st – 5th

Hi Kinder Families,

Can you believe it’s already May?! Last week, we learned to recognize Canadian Coins, visited Grade 3 to see their animal habitat projects and practiced for Assembly! This week, we look forward to the exciting wedding of the Letters Q & U and leading Assembly with our Buddies.

Our Featured Image:

Here we are from last week’s Nature Walk! We visited Sister Maureen & Sister Christine at the St. Paul Convent. They showed us their beautiful backyard with a statue of St. Francis; as our Sisters are of the Franciscan Order. We have posted more pictures and videos on ClassDojo!
