Wow!  It does not seem possible that our preschool year is almost over.  It has been a joy for us to watch your children become more confident academically, physically, socially, and emotionally this year.  We are so proud of their accomplishments as they prepare to “hop up” to their next step.  This month we would like to wish Kassandra a “Happy Birthday.”  In addition, this month we will also celebrate Keison, Kennedy, Anthony, and Iliana’s summer birthdays.

This Friday we are looking forward to a visit from Broken Road Farm.  It is always a fun, hands-on experience for the children to pet and feed the animals.   

May 12th is our “Morning with Mom.”  This is a special day for you and your preschooler—please no siblings.  Please arrive at 8:30 with your preschooler and bring a flower for Mary.  It can be a flower picked from your garden.  We will all attend Mass together at 9:00 and then go back to the classroom for a special treat.  After our classroom activities,  all of the preschool classes will take the flowers to Mary’s garden to place in front of our blessed mother Mary.  Our preschool day will conclude after we visit Mary’s garden.  We look forward to enjoying this special day with you!  

Our last day of school will be Friday, May 26th.  This is not a regular school day.  On this day, please bring your child to our classroom at 9:30 and then go find a good seat in the gym to enjoy their “Hoppin’ Up” performance.  Our entertaining performance will begin at 9:45 with a reception to follow.  Bring your cameras—it will definitely be filled with many “Kodak moments!”

We would like to thank everyone for all of your help this year!  It has been a pleasure getting to know all of you.  It was wonderful to have so many different parent volunteers coming in to help with our parties and to make Play Dough for our class.  Thank you, thank you!   Most of all, THANK YOU for sharing your children with us.  They each have a special place in our hearts and we have really enjoyed watching them grow.  Have a safe, relaxing summer.

May God bless you and your family,

Mrs. Bowen & Mrs. Gomez





May Calendar 2017


Our preschool day consists of center time, art, circle time, snack, playground, and we end our day with a story.  Art is done during our center time so that we are able to work with a few children at a time, depending on their needs. During circle time, we will be going over colors, shapes, patterns, prayers, and songs. So if your preschooler tells you that they did nothing at school, believe me they had a busy day!

Please note: the first week preschool will dismiss at 11:30 for everyone. Our afternoon program will begin on Tuesday, September 20. Your child will need to bring a lunch, labeled with their name. There is an option to order school lunches for your child, but we have found that the children are happy with their lunches from home and tend to not eat the school lunches as eagerly.
Milk and water are provided for the children to drink at lunch.
Please do not send a drink.

Our afternoon program ends at 3:00 and the children are dismissed in the car pool line. We will bring your child out to your car. For those children who are not staying for the afternoon  program, school dismisses at 11:30.
If you would like your child to stay for the Lunch Bunch program,
we will keep them in the classroom with us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us or send us an e-mail. We are always available. We look forward to a getting to know your preschoolers and enjoying a fun-filled year of learning with them!
