Kindergarten

November 30th-December 4th

This week, Kindergarten celebrated Christ the King! The children learned that Jesus is not only the ruler of their hearts but everyone’s hearts and that he watches over the entire universe. We were also fortunate to have Father Joseph visit our classroom this week to bless our Advent wreath! Now, as we enter this new liturgical season, the students will begin preparing their hearts for the coming of our Saviour’s birth and will come to understand the true meaning of Christmas.
