Welcome to K5A!

So many changes, so much growth, so much FUN!
Kindergarten...what a great place to be!!!


Thank you to everyone who made our Saints prayer service possible. I was so proud of our boys and girls and I know it was an experience they will long remember. Thank you, too, for your attentiveness and feedback at parent/teacher conferences. I always enjoy bragging about your little ones!

Reminders for the week:
  • Cold Weather Clothing: Now that the weather has gotten colder, please send your child with the appropriate clothing for outdoor recess. We will continue to have outdoor recess all throughout the winter months. Also, please make sure your child's clothing is LABELED and that they are able to dress themselves for recess. Quite of few boys and girls have had jackets they couldn't zip on their own (or over their snowpants) or boots they couldn't pull on themselves.
  • Art Bag: I will be sending home some art projects this week in a brown paper grocery bag. Please return the bag after you have removed your child's artwork. We will reuse them all year long. I am still in need of some bags so if you have any to donate it would be greatly appreciated.
  • Stamps:  Throughout the year we make cards for the elderly of our parish. The children really enjoy making and sending cards at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine"s Day and Easter. On occasion, a child may receive a thank you note in return but the satisfaction of spreading joy to the lives of our elderly friends is enough thanks for the boys and girls. For some of the elderly this may be the only card they receive during the holidays. They love hearing from your children! This is a fun and easy way for your children to be like Jesus and reach out to others. Please send 6 - first class stamps to school by Friday, Nov. 15th to cover the postage of each of the cards. Christ King will provide the envelopes. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
  • Annual K5 Thanksgiving Puppet Show:  Our annual kindergarten Thanksgiving Puppet Show will be held on Tuesday, November 26th at 8:00 in the North Hall. All are welcome.
Mystery Reader:  Fridays @ 2:30 (please stop by the office to let them know you are our Mystery Reader
