Kindergarten

October 26th-30th

This week, Kindergarten discussed how they could Walk with Jesus by being kind to others. They shared meaningful ways they could use their superpower of Kindness at school and at home and are showing a good understanding of our Archdiocesan theme! It was also nice seeing all of you at the Parent-Teacher Conferences yesterday and today to celebrate your child’s learning in the first term of Kindergarten. Thank you for being so actively involved in your child’s education!
