nursery-kids-togetherWelcome to Nursery!

Our Nursery classroom is a place where each child explores, creates, and experiences the world through a rich, varied program in a warm and nurturing environment. These years are a time of tremendous growth in your child’s life, and our program is designed to promote the holistic development of your child. Each day your child will participate in literacy, math, science, social studies, music and movement, and expressive arts activities in the various classroom learning centers.

Each child will also have daily opportunities for work on the classroom SmartBoard and personal computers. There are daily opportunities for independent exploration and learning, as well as whole group physical activities and free play with friends. Your child will form friendships, and grow in self-confidence and self-sufficiency in an atmosphere of respect for the uniqueness of each individual and the dignity of each person. Our program is designed to nourish your little one spiritually and intellectually through activities that promote cooperation and respect, and through project work that allows for the meaningful application of developing skills. Most importantly, your child will be encouraged to develop a loving relationship with God and a compassion for others.

Please join us for Circle Time and visit our beautiful classroom. We look forward to being partners in your child’s education!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Marinelli

Dear Parents,

     This is our last week of the Nursery school year. It has been a wonderful year for all of us! It has been a privilege and a joy to be a part of your children’s lives, and to watch them learn, blossom, and grow. Thank you for all you do, and for supporting all our work in class!

     This week we are taking time to celebrate our accomplishments, review what we have learned, and enjoy each other’s company. We will also celebrate the completion of our Children Around the World project, and your child will be bringing home his/her portfolio. I am so proud of their achievements!

  • If you have not done so already, please be sure to submit the $20 fee by tomorrow in order for your child to participate in the Nursery Celebration. We are presently making purchases for the event. Thank you! Please remember to refer to the Nursery Celebration paper, which went home in your child’s folder, for details about our celebration on June 18th. (The letter is also posted on our Nursery website.)
  • Our Walkathon is tomorrow, Tuesday June 12th.
  • I will be posting photographs of our Nursery children, classroom activities, and school events on our Nursery website page at the end of June. Please check our website!
  • Thank you to Madison’s grandpa, Mr. George, for presenting a puppet show and playing the trombone for our class last week!
  • Thank you all for your constant support this year! It has been a pleasure getting to know all of you!

         Ms. Rodriguez and I would like to wish you all a happy, healthy summer! May God bless you all!

                                                                                                   With warmest wishes,

Dear Parents,

   We have two more weeks left of school! Ms. Rodriguez and I are enjoying every last moment with this wonderful class!

   We have begun practicing each day for our Step-Up Celebration. This week we will continue to practice for our performance. We will also review letters, phonics, and numbers. We will complete our Children Around the World project. We will continue to spend time outside each day. The children will also work on self- initiated art projects each day.

   * We are beginning to clean and pack up our classroom. Please have your child bring in toys to play with during playtime each day. The toys should be durable, and should not include little pieces that could become lost. (I also would ask if you would refrain from sending in action figures that may encourage aggressive play.) In addition to these toys, your child may continue to bring in a soft toy to cuddle with at rest time. You do NOT need to send in a blanket this week. Thank you!

   *Our last day of Nursery will be June 18th. Please refer to the letter that was sent home last week in your child’s folder. (It is also posted on this webpage.)

   Have a great week!

                                                                                               Sincerely,

                                                                                               Mrs. Marinelli

In our science center we are observing the caterpillar to butterfly metamorphosis in our Butterfly Garden; we are presently observing the chrysalis stage. In religion we are preparing for the feast of Corpus Christi.
