Pre-K


Welcome To Pre-K


The Pre-K program at Holy Redeemer encourages children to create their own learning environment in which they learn to make new friends, experiment, be independent, problem solve, be creative, use their imagination, act Christ like and most importantly to be safe and have fun. 

We offer both teacher-directed and child-directed activities with a balance of inside and outside play, active and quiet times, and hands-on learning. The program includes art, music and movement, science, nutrition, dramatic play, cultural awareness, pre-math, pre-reading, pre-language skills, physical development, social interaction and spiritual growth.

Our goal is to provide a welcoming and loving environment in which young children will thrive and grow.  This is a time where your child will begin new relationships and continue to build on them throughout their Holy Redeemer school career. 

 
Snack and Lunch
Due to student's allergies, this year we are asking parents help to make our classrooms NUT-FREE.  Please send snacks that are nut-free.  Lunches that contain any nut related products are okay.  We have made accommodations for our students in the cafeteria.   Thank You

Please refer to our weekly newsletters for important dates and what Pre-K is doing in the classroom.

Pre-K News

          April 9, 2015

 

In the Classroom:  This week Pre-K began a new unit on shadows and reflections.  The kids have also enjoyed discussing the life of a caterpillar and butterfly.  We have connected the life cycle of a butterfly to Jesus, his death and resurrection.  Look for all the fun crafts we have made in our room.  In literacy, the kids are blending phonemes, learning about long Aa sound, and learning new vocabulary.  In math, the kids were introduced to the shape rhombus, and talking about the attributes of different shapes.

Next week we will continue to discuss shadows and reflections, long vowels and shapes. 

 

Jog-a-thon:  April 24th is the jog-a-thon.  Please work on getting pledges for your kids.  We want to beat Father John!

 

Spring Walk:  We are hoping to take a spring walk to Peninsula Park.  Please fill out permission slips and return next week.  Please indicate if you can chaperone.  Again, if it rains we will have to postpone the walk.  Thanks for understanding!

 

Show and Tell:  Next week we will begin show and tell.  The calendar on the back indicates when it is your child’s day to bring in an item. No play weapons are allowed.  It is your and your child’s responsibility to remember their day. 

 

Mrs. Hunter is back!  Thank you to Mrs. Hatke for doing such a wonderful job when she was gone.  She will be missed!  Mrs. Hunter is getting to know the kids again and seeing where they are at and what needs to be worked on.  Please give her a couple more weeks and she will be in-contact with parents if there anything that needs to be discussed. 

Thanks!!
