Kindergarten Baptism Lesson

KA and KB came together with the help of one of our Seminarians, Mr.Cheung, to learn more about the sacrament of baptism.

Each class was given a baby doll: they voted on the name and selected their classmates for each role in the baptism. We had a set of "twin baby dolls": Molly and Sunny Ava. From KA we had Francesca Monaco (Godmother), Michael Fanelli (Dad), and Josephine Kelly (Mom). From KB we had Henry Aschenbrenner (Godfather), Aria Forster (Godmother), and Brian Wichroski (Godfather).

Seminarian Cheung led us in our mock baptism ceremony; he explained to the students about the importance of this sacrament, the font, the oils, and candles. He led us in prayer and the students all had a chance to ask questions about baptism.

A Note From Our Classroom Parents


Hello KA Parents,

Jen and I want to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves as the Kindergarten A room moms. There are a few parties lined up for the Kindergarteners this year (e.g. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc). We will be using SignUp Genius to sign up to bring in items for the parties. You may sign up for the Halloween Party here.


******************


Calling all Pirates, Ballerinas, and Superheroes

Draculas and Witches, too.

We've got a spooky party,

Planned just for you!

KA will be having their annual Halloween party on Thursday, October 31st at 12:30-1:30PM. If you would like to help us make this party extra special, please sign up for the item you would like to send in. Please have enough for each of the 17 children in the class.

**PLEASE note that there is a deadly peanut allergy (contact and ingestion) in the class. Be mindful of this whenever you send in a food item. KA class is peanut/tree nut free. If you are sending in a store bought, prepackaged item, please provide the ingredients portion of the label.**

Please send in your contribution with your child by Thursday morning. Don't forget to send their costume in a bag labeled with their name, so we can help them put it on before the Parade of Costumes. They are not permitted to bring any play swords/knives/guns as accessories.

If you have your clearances and would like to volunteer to help at the party please email Michelle (Tiger9_mich@yahoo.com) by 10/19, names will be picked out of a hat. We know everyone loves to help, so if you don't get to contribute or volunteer this time, there will be more parties in the future!

Due to the small space in the classroom, all parents and siblings cannot be accommodated at the party. However, the school costume parade will be at 1:30PM, in the front of the school. ALL are welcome to watch the kids show off their costumes as they walk to the rectory for a special treat.

If you are taking your child home after the parade, please make sure to inform Mrs. Lebron ahead of time. Please do not take them directly from the parade line, please sign them out after they have returned to the classroom to retrieve their belongings.


Thank you!

- Jen Wiggins and Michelle Mangapit
