Welcome to Pre K!

The Pre-K curriculum includes literacy, math, science, social studies, and religion as well as social skills.

Each week the children are introduced to a letter of the alphabet. They will learn to recognize the letter, as well as words that begin with that letter. Through literature the letters are reinforced. The children create art work relating to the letter. The formation of letters is taught and sight words are introduced using My Short Books.

The math curriculum includes learning about shapes, patterns, measurement, and numbers as well as many concepts that relate to them.

In science we examine magnets, light, and bubbles through hands-on activities. In the spring, we learn about life sciences by exploring insects and animals and by watching our plants grow.

In social studies we discuss ourselves and our families and those people who help us in our community. We learn about other cultures through their customs, language, and foods.

The children learn about Jesus through stories and songs. They are taught the Hail Mary and The Lords Prayer. They learn about and celebrate the Holy Days. We visit church throughout the year.

Music is a very important part of our curriculum as the children sing songs about concepts that they have learned. These songs strengthen their knowledge of those concepts.

The computer is used to enrich all areas of the curriculum.

Social skills are taught through modeling and interacting throughout the day.

The UPK program enhances the curriculum through the use of centers where the children experience and learn on their own.

Good afternoon SFACA Families,

I hope this email finds you all safe and well and that you have been able to have some relaxation this summer. Summertime seems to go faster every year.

We are very much looking forward to our full in-person academy opening on September 8th, 2021. As you know, each new school year is an opportunity for us to improve as educators so that our students can reap the benefits of our growth. With that in mind, we will work this year to give our students the best of ourselves. We want them to be filled with hope, joy, comfort, and the love of learning throughout this new school year.
