Preschool Press 11/5/18

Dear Families,

Our preschoolers enjoyed last week’s Halloween festivities! The children were darling in their costumes and had fun doing a costume parade with their 4th grade buddies. They also enjoyed making “skeleton hands” with the help of their buddies.


This week we will focus on the letter and sound of Hh and make Hippo Hal.


Last week we learned about “All Saints Day”. We talked about what a Saint is and how they teach us to be like Jesus. This week we will learn what life was like when Jesus was a boy. By giving the children an image of Jesus as a boy, we will help them understand him as a real person with many of the same joys and concerns that they have.


This week in Spanish we will learn some Thanksgiving vocabulary words.

Please: Porfavor

Thank you: Gracias

Spoon: Cuchara

Fork: tenedor

Knife: cuchillo

Dinner: cena

Family: familia

Food: comida


November Scholastic book order forms will be sent home on November 5th. Please post your orders by Tuesday, November 13th.


The month of November the classes of St. John’s school will be collecting food for the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. Please send in non-perishable items for our neighbors in need.


The children are learning to sing “TURKEY TIME” this time of year. Below are the lyrics:


Turkey time, pumpkin pie.

Frosty weather in the sky.

Families gather round

For Thanksgiving day.


On that first Thanksgiving day,

The Indians brought the meat.

The Pilgrims brought the vegetables,

And they all sat down to eat.


(Repeat: Turkey time, pumpkin pie…)


Each year on this day of thanks,

The people that we love.

Gather round to thank the Lord,

For blessings from above.

(Repeat: Turkey time, pumpkin pie…)


Preschoolers are always expected to put away one item before getting out another one. What a great habit to encourage!

Thank you! Have a blessed week!



No school on November 9 and 12 for Veteran’s day.

No school on November 19, 20, and 21 for the Thanksgiving Holiday
