Kindergarten

October 28th – November 1st

It was a super exciting week in Kindergarten! The children began their week by discussing how they could be a follower of Jesus. They shared meaningful ways they could be kind and loving at school and at home and are definitely showing good understanding of our Archdiocesan theme! The class also had so much fun surprising Miss Costales with an in-class bridal shower! Thank you to Mrs. Chiu and Mrs. Law for planning and organizing the celebration and to all the parents who were able to attend and shower the (very) soon-to-be Mrs. Dos Santos with lots of love!

  5. Halloween
    • If your child plans on bringing a treat to share with all their classmates, please be sure they are nut-free and individually wrapped. Please do not individualize the treats by putting names on them but you can put who it’s from (i.e. you may write From _________, but please not To ___________ ). Please also keep in mind that we have 31 students in the class.
    • Your child is welcome to come in a costume, or wear black and/or orange.
    • If wearing a costume, please keep in mind the following:
      • We are a Catholic community, therefore costumes must be modest, respectful of others, and free of offensive language.
      • We are focused on student safety and peace of mind, therefore: no weapons or replica weapons of any kind (guns, swords, knives, chains, etc.); no blood or slime; no witches, ghosts, goblins, zombies, or scary monsters.
      • We are a learning community, therefore students must be able to sit at their desk comfortably and consider the space of others (no big hats or wide wings); fully participate in all class activities (including PE and recess times); and see and hear clearly (no face masks).
