Today, we celebrated the Chinese New Year with Ms. Sarah’s Preschool Class! We practiced using chopsticks with M&M’s, colored Chinese New Year coloring pages, and put together our very own dragon! Then, much like they do in China, we paraded around the school with our dragon and drums. Happy Year of the Dog!
Today was 80's day at school! Everyone was rockin' their throwback gear. Along with 80's day, it was also Groundhog Day! We took a vote on whether or not we thought Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow, and then we watched him coming out of his home on our SmartBoard! It was so much fun. We had an amazing Catholic Schools Week!!
As part of Catholic Schools Week, Epiphany does a bulletin board contest! The class with the most "likes" on Facebook wins an ice cream party! This year's theme was "Faith to move mountains." Help us try and win some ice cream! Please click on this link, and follow it to the "Preschool 2" bulletin board and give it a like. Feel free to share it as well!!
In honor of Career Day, we all discussed/wrote about what we want to be when we grow up! These preschoolers are our future. Dream big, little ones!
We also had a special guest come speak to us today! Officer Ruehl, who works for the Chicago Police Department, came and spoke to us about what police officers do. He even let us try on some of his gear! What a fun day.
What a wonderful morning we had enjoying breakfast with our families and friends! Thank you to all the families who were kind enough to donate food for the breakfast, as well as the families who were able to come eat with us! We appreciate everything you do for us and our school. We also had a special guest reader, Mr. Tom Zbierski from the Big Shoulders Fund, come read to our class! Thank you Mr. Z for spending time with us today. :)
We were so cozy in our pajamas today! Also, since tomorrow is our special Family breakfast, we spent the morning working together with the other preschool class to make a table cloth. Along with pajama day, it was also student appreciation day! Each of these preschoolers received an "Elephant and Piggie" book to take home. I love these kiddos!! What a great start to Catholic Schools Week.
