May 7 - May 11
We have a lot of activities to pack into the next two weeks of school. Here are some of the things that we are going to be working on:

We are going to continue to learn about gardens and how plants grow. We planted green bean seeds and will be observing them over the next few weeks. We will be talking about flowers, leaves and produce. We will be making our own little garden using an egg carton and vegetable props. We will also be learning about the letter F and talk about different words that begin with F.

This week will be the last week I will be sending the homework folders home with your child. I will send a summer packet home in your child's homework folder at the end of the school year. Please return your child's homework folder by Friday, May 11th.

This Thursday evening is the Spring Concert at 6:30 at the McCormick Center. Preschool and Pre-K will be participating. Please have your child there by 6:15 and wear his/her Sunday best.

This Friday, May 11th will be field day at the St. Augustine Campus. All Preschool regardless of scheduled days are invited to participate in this event. All students are to be dropped off at the St. Augustine Campus at the regular drop off time. Before and After care will be available at this campus only. Each student has been assigned to the team of their 6th grade buddy who will help them with each activity. Please have your child wear a short-sleeved T-shirt the color of the assigned team. Preschool students will attend Mass with their assigned teams at 8:15. Each child needs to bring a sack lunch with a drink.

On Wednesday, May 16, we will be joining the other area Catholic schools at Althoff Catholic High School for our annual Belleville Catholic Schools' Picnic. Preschool and 
Pre-K DO NOT COME TO SCHOOOL ON THIS DAY. If you would like your child to participate in this event, you will be responsible for bringing them to the high school and staying with them throughout the day. The pep rally is scheduled to start at 10:00 in the gym. Please make sure to come find me at the pizza stand in the courtyard after the pep rally (around 10:30) I will have your child's $2.00 in free food/drink tickets.
