1 Pre-Kindergarten Parent Packet Nikki Parks Save this for reference this year.

2 Dear Parents, I am very excited to start this new school year with each of you. This will be my 15 th year of teaching in Wichita Catholic Schools. I started working with preschool-aged children while in college. After graduating from WSU, I taught 2 years at St. Joseph. I then taught at St. Mary s in Derby in the preschool, kindergarten and first grade classrooms for 7 years. That brings me here to All Saints where I will be starting my 6 th year. I am a wife and proud mother of three young and busy boys. Being a mother has made me a far better teacher than any formal education could have! I have learned about the true love for a child and have come to an understanding for their own special needs and desires. I am looking forward to a wonderful year. You will be so proud of how much your child will grow! I hope to guide them into this school journey with a spirit for learning and a fondness for friendships. Please be sure to talk with me about any concerns you may have for your child. I will do the same. is a great way to contact me. I will be sending newsletters out on Fridays. If you prefer paper, please let me know and I can send notes to you, as well. Also, be sure to check the orange folders for notes. Please make sure your child has this with them every day. Be sure to clean this out daily. Most papers that go home in the folder can stay home unless otherwise noted. Here s to a Great Year!

3 Curriculum We have received a grant for a comprehensive (all subject areas) preschool curriculum called, Literacy Express. The activities and lessons will build upon each other as the year progresses. Your child will learn about rhyming, letters, numbers, counting, shapes, syllables, compound words, etc. It is also an excellent tool for vocabulary and speaking skills. I will explain what skills we will be working on in our class newsletters. For our religion curriculum, we will be using the excellent Catholic program, Seeds. It is geared towards the weekly Gospel readings at Sunday Mass. We will be attending Mass on the first Friday of each month starting in October. If my lights are off and it s a Friday after 7:50, we have probably already left for Church. You will need to meet us there. Be sure to look over and save the list of prayers attached. We will start with the Morning Offering and the Angel of God prayer. I have attached the new diocesan-wide Preschool Curriculum Guide for you in this packet. This will give you a good idea of the many skills we will be working on this year. Procedures Our school day begins at 8:00. The front main school entrance will be unlocked at 7:50. You can enter through this main entrance on the west side of the building under the awning. Let your child take care of their own folder, backpack, jacket, etc. as they enter the room. Dismissal for the morning class will be at 11:00. If we are on our playground, please come inside the gate to pick up your child. If we are not on the playground, please enter the front main entrance to pick up your child from our classroom. Our full day group will be dismissed at 3:00. You can meet us inside our playground gates located near our north door. For parking lot safety, please wait inside these gates for your child. I will be talking to the kids about not running out to meet you, they must wait for you to come in and get them. At 3:05, I will be walking the remainder of children to our Extended Day Program which is located north of our school building. You can follow the sidewalk outside of our gates directly to the north towards a marked entrance for your child.

4 Classroom Discipline I believe in a consistent routine in the classroom. Your child will know what is expected here at school every day. If misbehavior does occur, I will first remind them that the behavior is not appropriate and redirect them towards a better choice. If it continues, they may take some Thinking Time away from others for a few minutes. We will discuss what happened together and decide if we need any other consequences at that time. I also believe in self-responsibility. Your child will be asked to solve their own problems in class or work as a team to find a solution. I may be there guide, but they will take pride in taking care of themselves! Birthdays We love celebrating in Pre-K! Please feel free to send special treats for your child whenever works for their birthday. If you can, try and avoid frosting cupcakes. The messy factor is a bit much. Please and thanks!

7 Show and Tell Show and tell is an excellent way to improve your child s verbal language skills. It s also great for listening and detailed learning. It is especially good for children s confidence in their own unique self. If your child goes all day, they will have show and tell once a week. It will always be on their same day. Please refer to the newsletter for the specific show and tell request for the week. Mondays: Tuesdays: Ellie, Joey, Beyonca Wednesdays: Leo, Madeline, Olyve Thursdays: CJ, Cameron Fridays: If we do not have school on your child s day, please make note that their day will be the following day of school. If your child forgets on their day, they miss their turn and can have show and tell the next week.

8 Weekly Chef We will be cooking up some wonderful recipes in pre-k this year. Our Weekly Chef will be leading us through a tasty recipe of their choice. They will be leading our class through the steps of a simple recipe in which we will be making, too. I will send home a recipe book with your child the week before their turn. Feel free to add or create your own and send a copy for me to help. If you are unable to do this project for any reason, simply return the book for the next child s turn. NO FOOD CONTAINING NUTS PLEASE!! It s important to send enough ingredients for 10 children to participate in making this recipe along with the chef! Don t forget utensils, if needed! Thanks!

Please feel free to use one from the book or try another one you may have found elsewhere. Simply make a copy for me if it isn t in the book. Then, send in all materials needed to demonstrate the experiment along with the notebook. The class will observe the scientist, so you only need to send in materials needed for your child to demonstrate the experiment.
