Welcome to 2017-2018                             
                                                      We are so happy you're here!

Welcome to the home of Our Lady Charity's Pre-Kindergarten class news, up dates and much more.  

"Play is a child's work."  In our room, the children learn through play.  Our days are built around the activities that the children choose and we are modeling, facilitating and teaching in each of those moments. Click on any of the tabs to the left.  You can read more about play and literacy, see our projects, view photos and discover a snippet of what a day in our classroom looks like.

Mrs. Bogacki and I feel blessed that you have chosen Our Lady of Charity for your child's learning experience.  I've been teaching at OLC since 2009.  Prior to coming to OLC, The Cardinal Bernardin Early Childhood Center in Lincoln Park was where I hung my hat and taught from the time it opened in 1998 until its closing in 2009.  If you are curious about OLC's history, have a conversation with Mrs. Bogacki.  She has taught at OLC over 20 years.  She retired from full time teaching in June, 2015 and became Pre-Kindergarten's full time assistant extraordinaire in August of the same year.  I am so glad she retired! 

I do not engage in social media.  My communication with family and friends is through the U.S. Postal Service, yes, I buy stamps at the Post Office and actually write letters, in cursive, imagine that!  I do send e-mails but member's of my family will tell you they love getting mail in their mailbox and NOT their in-box.

My main communication with parents is via e-mail, phone and your child's communication envelope.  You will be able to see the newsletters in full color on this web page.  If I have your e-mail address, you will periodically receive photos from our class time and I will also send up-dates that way.  If ANY of your contact information changes, please let me know immediately.  It is imperative that you keep the school up-dated in case an emergency arrises with your child.

Let me know, through your child's communication envelope or via e-mail if you have visited this page.

We will pray for you daily and we ask that you keep us in prayer, too.

May your day be blessed!

Your children's teachers,

With sincere thanks for bringing in pasta and other goods for the OLC food pantry.  
While we take time to share with others during the Thanksgiving season, there is always a need for keeping the pantry filled.   
Donations are welcomed anytime of the year.

Along with Mrs. Bogacki and myself, the PK families were well represented in our total donation to Catholic Charities in Florida.

$100.00 donation was given to Hurricane Harvey 
Our PK families along with Mrs. Bogacki and myself contributed $100.00 to the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston for the families who have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

My sincere thanks for the overwhelming generosity of our families in PK.    Miss Talbot
