K-1/Ms. Lauren Merola

Hello and Welcome to K-1!! 

My name is Ms. Lauren Merola. I have my M.S. Ed. in Literacy Education from Long Island University in Brentwood and my B.A. in Child Study from St. Joseph's College in Patchogue. I have been teaching for almost eight years and have worked in both the primary and intermediate grades. Prior to starting at Notre Dame School, I was a Literacy Specialist for K-6 in the Elmont Union Free School District for two years.

Kindergarten holds a special place in my heart though!! I am very excited about starting my second year as part of the Notre Dame community!!!! I look forward to a fun and exciting year of growing and learning together!!!

Happy May!! It's hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the school year!! We have learned so many wonderful and interesting things so far in kindergarten!!!! We are continuing to learn and practice our letters, their sounds, and sight words so we can become better readers. We are working in our journals and our handwriting books every week to practice our writing. We are working very hard to get ready for first grade!! In Math, we finished with the Numbers 20 and Beyond and reviewed for our assessment. In Science, we learned about different kinds of plants and sharks. In Religion, we learned about how we can share God's love with our friends. We also made a special craft for Mary and attended our May Crowning ceremony. God's blessings to all!! :)
