Kindergarten

November 2nd-6th

It was a very exciting week in Kindergarten! It started off with the children picking out their perfect pumpkins, just in time for Halloween! As they were pumpkin picking, the students were able to make connections to the Pumpkin Life Cycle and even used their five senses to describe the pumpkins to their friends! They also enjoyed seeing each other’s Halloween costumes and were super excited to take part in today’s festivities, which included a spooky dance party and a Halloween Hunt! We wish everyone a safe and fang-tastic Halloween!

Also this week, Kindergarten did a wonderful job attending their first class Mass! Mrs. D and I were pleased to see how reverent they were at church and Father Smith was very impressed with their engagement during the entire celebration too! Way to go, Kindergarten!
