Welcome to Kindergarten at St. Francis!
We children are usually very busy working, playing and singing about many different subjects. Our religion lessons cover God’s creation, Jesus God’s Son, Mary, His Mother, special people called saints, and special holy days.
We are beginning to learn to read through sounds, words, and stories. We listen to many stories that take us to wonderful places to meet special people.
Our math work is all about numbers, shapes, measuring, money and how we can use all of that in our lives each day.
We also talk about holidays, communities, workers, citizenship, and history in social studies, additions which help us to become more well-rounded.
The seasons guide our science lessons: fall happenings, winter weather, spring and summer. Of course, we talk about the healthy habits we try to have so that we can be in school every day. Music, art, gym, library and Italian are wonderful.
Our days are busy and each one helps us to grow in responsibility, independence, and maturity as we make new friends and learn to treat others as Jesus would want. Our teachers help to guide us through the year.
In Reading and Phonics we will be taking the TerraNova exams and continuing letter Jj.

In Religion we will continue to learn to pray as Jesus does.
“A HAIRY TALE” by Charlie Lovett
Friday, May 10, 2019
Msgr. Campbell Hall
The supremely bratty Prince Rupert and the equally obnoxious Princess Iphigenia have been exiled to the wild woods of Wychwood and can’t return home until they find true love. But who would love such spoiled brats? Could it be Rapunzel and her brother Bill, trapped in an enchanted tower because they refused to get a haircut? Or perhaps Elton and his sister Ernestine, peasant children who sell all the family’s electronics for a measly five beans that might be magic? With a fairy-tale committee that includes a super-cool big bad wolf and a bumbling fairy godmother making the rules, this romp through the forest of Wychwood is filled with twists and turns. With unforgettable characters like Paprika (the lost Spice Girl) and a pair of paparazzi desperate for a photo of Rapunzel, A Hairy Tale will have you laughing until the curtain falls and everyone (okay, almost everyone) has learned the meaning of true love, true sacrifice, and truly hilarious storytelling.
Admission Donation are greatly appreciated. Light refreshments available before the show.

If you are not already familiar with this event, let me fill you in! It is a silly, fanciful, wonderful way to teach students the spelling pattern of “qu” in a way that is truly memorable.
