Week of June 19 - 23

 

We had another exciting week last week! The Grade 7's had a very special assembly for Mrs. Moorehead on Monday! They wanted to show Mrs. Moorehead their appreciation for all she does, and what better way than bringing in her absolute, favourite hockey player, Trevor Linden! After months of planning the Grade 7's were able to suprise Mrs. Moorehead during assembly! Not only was the school in for a treat with Mr. Linden but also Fin! The Kinders were especially excited to see the real-live Fin! He even stopped by the classroom to read a story with us! It was truly a special day and a special way to end our SEL program Fin's Friends! If Monday wasn't already exciting, Wednesday was also a treat! Father Rodney, the current Vocations Director of the Archdiocese, came for a visit! He spoke to the whole school about vocations and answering your call from God! The kids loved learning from him and all the videos he showed to help us understand our calling! 

What a truly fantastic and blessed week we had! We're looking forward to more fun events this week!

WEEK OF JUNE 12 - 16

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

What an exciting week! Last Monday, Frater Emmanuel (Miss Costales' cousin), came to visit Kindergarten. He is studying to become a priest at the seminary at St. Micheal's Abbey in Silverado, California! The children enjoyed learning about his vocation and showing Frater Emmanuel how we say our prayers-- and Frater would say them back to us in Latin! Last Wednesday was Miss Guevara's birthday and last Friday was Miss Costales' birthday (talk about twinsies)! Thank you to all parents for the generous birthday gift! We are so blessed to work with such an amazing group of children and parents at St. Paul's School. Please join us this Friday for Kindergarten and Grade 6s last assembly of the year. Three more weeks left in Kindergarten....

Happy Mother's Day Kinder Families! We hope you had a wonderful day! 

We had a very exciting Friday last week! We started the day off by leading the assembly with our Grade 6 Buddies! The Kinders did a great job in the procession to crown our Mother Mary and with leading the rosary! Thank you parents, for practicing with your children at home! We then went on our field trip to 4Cats and the children were excellent listeners! We can't wait for you to see their wonderful artwork! Thank you to the dads who were able to take the time to accompany us, we hope you enjoyed it! We ended our day with a Community Helper presentation from Rachel's dad, Mr. Mallari! He brought in a recycling truck and we learned tips on reducing, reusing and recycling. We even got to see the recycling truck in action!

Hi Kindergarten Families,

We can't believe how quickly the year is flying by! There are only two more months left in Kindergarten! The children are working very hard in school and are doing such a wonderful job on their spelling challenges! They come to school excited to learn the new words, enjoy praciting them in class with their friends, and work very hard at home reviewing! Thank you to all parents for working with your children on these high frequency words! In Religion, the children are reviewing the Glory Be, Our Father, and Hail Mary Prayers.  In Socials, the children are learning about family needs vs. family wants. In Science, the children are learning about the plant life cycle as well as needs of living things! The children look forward to the busy month of May, where we will be hosting the Crowning of Mary Assembly with our Grade 6 buddies, as well as celebrating our marvelous Mother's on Mother's Day! Mother's please check your child's homework folder for an invitation to our Mother's Day Tea on Monday, May 15th!

Week of April 24 - 28

Hi Kinder families! 

We had an exciting week of safety drills this week! On Tuesday, we had an Earthquake Drill and on Wednesday we had a Fire Drill. The kinders did a great job of listening to instructions and following all our safety rules. We are confident they are prepared in the case of a real emergency! Thank you to everyone who came to the Student-Led Conferences on Friday! We enjoyed seeing all of you! The children were excellent leaders in showing you aroud the classroom and they had a great time showing you their hard work and accomplishments! We look forward to a busy week ahead of us!
