Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten!
Thank you to all of the parents who drove and chaperoned for our field trip to the fire station! We had a wonderful tour and learned lots of helpful information! The kids loved getting in the fire truck, watching the firefighters in the ladder bucket, and seeing the fireman get dressed in his gear. I appreciate your help in getting us there!

PRE-K CLASSROOM INFORMATION
This information will be useful throughout the year.
Show and Tell will be every Friday. (Or the last day of the week). There will be a theme for each week. For example, B (bugs) - Students can either bring in a bug or something that starts with the letter B. Students need to be prepared to tell 2 things about their show and tell.
Birthdays will be celebrated in school. Parents are welcome to visit for snack or bring in special treats. Reminder that we are a peanut-free school. Please do not send any snacks with peanuts or peanut butter. They will be returned. Snacks with a label reading “May contain traces of nuts” or “made on equipment that also processes nuts” will not be allowed due to severe allergies. Parents are welcome to send in favors in place of treats if desired. (All birthday celebration suggestions are optional and definitely not mandatory!) Summer birthdays can be celebrated any time throughout the year- let me know when you want to celebrate it ahead of time. Birthday party invitations may be passed out in school bags if ALL STUDENTS IN THE CLASS are invited. If not all are invited, please send them through the mail.
Please check the class webpage on a regular basis. I will update it weekly as to what we will be doing each week. I will also send home a weekly sheet telling you the theme, letter, star student, religion lesson, centers, and stories for the week.
We will take scheduled bathroom breaks every day. Please encourage your child to use the bathroom before coming to school. We hope to eliminate numerous trips to the bathrooms, as there are other classes using them during their scheduled breaks.
We plan to take field trips this year. For all trips, students will need signed permission slips and car seats to attend. Drivers must be Safe Environment trained, must have background checks, and must be fingerprinted ahead of time. The office must have records of this before the field trip. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you have any ideas for a field trip, please let me know. Safe Environment trainings are offered throughout the year.
Please send your child to school with their empty tote bag and folder. Many papers will be sent home on Fridays. If the office has an important notice to send before Friday, you may have a folder/note any day of the week.
The Behavior Management system for the classroom is
When the students fill their caterpillar with stickers/necklace with beads, they may choose something from the prize box.
My name is Laura Kiley. I am a graduate of Holy Trinity (now Corpus Christi) Catholic School. This is my 15th year here at Corpus Christi. I taught my first 2 years in Kindergarten and have taught preschool for 13 years. I have four children who also attend Corpus Christi. Jameson is in sixth grade, Campbell is in fourth grade, Adeline is in second grade, and Dax is in preschool. I look forward to working with you this year. We will learn so much and will have lots of fun while doing it!
