St. John Vianney Catholic School
December 8, 2017
We had a very busy week in Kindergarten. We had a visit from St. Nicholas on Wednesday. We left a shoe out in the hallway and he paid us a visit and filled them with some “gold coins” and candy canes! We were so excited! We met Mr. Tall Teeth and worked on forming Tt as well as our Ii.
The virtue we will focus on during the month of December is Joy; The joy we know as children of God. A joy that we share with kind words and actions.
Each morning we gather, after our “basement family prayer” to gather in a circle of Kindergartners to sit and greet our friends with a handshake, a look in the eye, and a greeting. We do so kindly and gently and with patience. This is also a time to work on simply gathering in a circle without worrying about where we are sitting and who we are sitting next to. We are all a school family and will treat each other with kindness and respect.
In Religion, the focus of our next chapter is that God created us! He loves us and made each of us special.
Our turn to shop at Santa’s will be Tuesday, December 12.
Juice/Milk fee for the month of December is $ 7.00. This is for both a morning and afternoon drink choice. Thank you for keeping up with this, either daily, weekly, or monthly.
We are looking at having a Christmas Party during the afternoon of December 20th at around 2:00. More details will be coming!
Thank you for sending in warm clothes for your child. We use this “getting ready time” to work on independence as we get those coats on and zipped!
Our Primary Christmas Program for grades K-4 will be held this coming Monday in the Church. Children should meet us in the back of the church to left as you walk in at 6:45.
