Assumption Academy Pre-K-Plus Class 9/17-9/21/18
Hello everyone, isn't it just wonderful to have a sunny Sunday? Here's Hoping your weekend's been going just super fine. Our first full week at Assumption went fabulously well! We are getting acclimated to the flow of our daily routines/schedule/activities and making lots of effort to follow our classroom rules. Our students are doing one awesome job presenting their All About Me Posters--thanks, folks, you and your child did an outstanding job with these! Our kiddos are loving their morning center activities, doing their jobs during Circle time, eating lunch with their friends, singing and praying with Sr. Kathleen and daily in our classroom too. Recess of course is always a top favorite! Our yogis and yoginis seemed to truly enjoy our first Yoga and Mindfulness Session. Another round of Jump the River and a Soccer Scrimmage made for a great work-out and a fun Friday afternoon!
Reminders/Requests for the Week:
This Friday, 9/21, is our school-wide Opening Prayer Service in Church--starting time is 9:30 am. Hoping to see you all there! (length of service - about 30 minutes).
