N-1/Mrs. Elizabeth Pellettiere

Welcome to our little corner of the world!
Last week, on our Lenten journey, the children learned that Jesus wants us to follow in His footsteps. We can follow in His footsteps by listening to His message of love and kindness. The children made kindness pledges  to friends and family that they promised to keep. This week, we will learn that Jesus taught many people to pray. In the art center, we will make "praying hands" and list all of the people we love. 

Some important considerations:

Kindly refer to the handout given out at the Orientation regarding Valet safety rules. 

Gym is every Monday. Please wear sneakers! 

Next week our number work  will include adding quantity to the number 7 on our number line.

We hope you are enjoying our class mitten book. Don't forget to return it the very next school day so another family can enjoy it.

Show and Tell is on Wednesday. Kindly send in something that begins with the letter O.

Teacher's Prayer
Lord, please help me to strengthen their voices,
bodies and minds,
to express their feelings and to guide them gently,
to explore what's near,
and venture afar, but
most important to love who they are.
