Last week we studied manners. After reading "The Rainbow Fish" we had a foil art project in the art center. We also learned about being kind with a "bee" art project. Our songs were "Please and Thank You" and "The More We Get Together". We brainstormed good manners and role-played some not-so-good manners! We had the opportunity to practice etiquette with a tea party complete with crumpets!

This week we will celebrate Earth Week. In our sensory table we will explore a "coral reef" with water, sea glass, sand dollars, and sea shells. In art we will recycle a can by making it into a pencil holder and learn about feeding the birds by making a bird treat. Our topics will include: Creation, Reduce/Reuse/Recycle, endangered animals, and being kind to plants and animals.

We are also busy preparing for our school-wide Fund Run, which will be held on Friday May 15th. This is a fun morning with our class together, running on the grass field. You will receive a packet this week with 5 pledge forms and 5 tickets. Please obtain 5 pledges from friends, neighbors, relatives or co-workers. The raffle tickets are from parishioners who have already pledged money for our school, and your child may win one of the prizes that are displayed upstairs near the office. For each pledge form you turn in, your child will get an additional ticket! Please take a moment with your child to drop the tickets in the containers upstairs. Contact Andrea McIntyre at with any questions. You are welcome to join us to cheer your child on and to assist your child and his/her classmates.

If your child has participated in prior Fund Runs, we are wearing past t-shirts each Friday leading up to the May 15th run.

Have a great week with your child!

On Monday, April 6 (during spring break), we will be having an Easter egg hunt! We are asking each child who is signed up to attend on that day bring in 5 filled plastic eggs to contribute. Thank you.

Last week we survived the rain with a few indoor active sessions in the gym! We went on a "Bear Hunt", played London Bridge and Farmer in the Dell! We even tried musical chairs!

In art we made collages with things you might find in a kitchen, and made Kookaburra birds. We explored kiwi fruit for a science activity and had our class photo.

This week we will celebrate everything Easter! We will have Easter themed art, music, stories, learn "Little Bunny Foo Foo" and taste hot-cross buns!

Our class has a few items needed if you would like to help contribute:

White rice for our sensory table

Stickers and patterned scrapbook type papers for art

Plastic lids from cottage cheese, butter dish or large yogurt tubs for streamer handles

Have a great week, and enjoy Easter with your family!


Last week we explored the letter 'X' with an X-marks the spot treasure hunt thru our school, made 'x's with pretzels, shared a book about x-rays and even saw a real x-ray of a human spine! In art, tissue paper rainbows were a big hit!

This week, our letter is 'K'. Please brainstorm with your child words that begin with the letter 'k'. We will be making kitchen collages and kites, exploring kaleidoscopes and flying kites. We will have the opportunity to taste kiwi and sort and count keys! Our class photo day will be Thursday at 11:15. If this is not a scheduled day of attendance for your child, you are encouraged to bring them for the photo with our class.


Enrollment for fall is underway, please be sure to register your child.

Don't forget to call if your child stays home on their scheduled day.

Please note the days/times of our special field trips planned for spring break week, April 6th thru April 10th.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to foster your child's learning!


This Thursday March 26th will be the Hawks class photo day. Other ELC classes will have their photo day on Friday. If your child is not scheduled on Thursdays, you are encouraged to bring them for the photo. Our time will be at approximately 11:15.
Order forms for our class photo were placed in your childs cubbie today. We will have extras in our class.

Last week in our class we learned that by mixing yellow with red it makes orange! We explored this concept with paint and also with food color in whipped cream (to dip our apple slices!) This lesson was based on the story "Mouse Paint". In our art area we used a spinner to make spin art and in science we explored the 'm'oon with Oreos and a life-like moon on our wall. Miss Mary Mack was our newly learned song.

This week we will learn about letter 'X' and emotions. Please brainstorm 'x' words and talk about emotions with your child. On Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, your child may like to wear green! We will be making tissue paper rainbows and going on a treasure hunt to find the 'x' from our 'x-marks the spot' map! We will be making 'x' with pretzels and celery and looking at a real x-ray.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to expand your child's knowledge!


We will be having class photos on Friday March 27th. Watch for ordering information to be in your child's cubbie soon. If your child is not scheduled to attend class on this day, you may bring them in and stay with them for the photo, as we currently don't have any openings on this day.  

Because the grade school upstairs will be closed this Friday March 13th, we will be having lunch 1/2 hour earlier, at 11:30 instead of 12:00.

We had a super fun Dr. Seuss week last week! We celebrated by trying green eggs and ham after reading the story, wearing Thing 1 and Thing 2 hats after reading The Cat in the Hat, having a fish cracker and blue jello snack after Mr. Hart came in and read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish to us. (He is an awesome storyteller!) We planted flower seeds to symbolize Truffula Trees after reading (the shortened version!) of The Lorax.

This week we will re-visit the letter 'M'. In our dramatic play area we will be shopping in our own 'm'arket, in our art area we will explore 'm'ixing primary colors with a spin art activity and a Mouse Paint activity. Our stories will include: Marvin K. Mooney will you Please Go Now, Are You My Mother?, On Market Street, Messy Room and Mouse Paint. Miss Mary Mack will be our song, and in religion We Celebrate Lent.

Thank you to the families who sent in items for our market, they will be well used!

Have a great week!
