Amazing End of Year Party

Thank you all so very much for all your help with the End of Year party, Ms. Barb and I appreciate it more than we can say. It would not have been successful without the help of each and every one of you!!!

Here is our Goodbye Ms. Barb video that you all worked so hard with your children to create. Again, we really appreciate you making the effort and we know it was a BIG effort to get the kids to cooperate...

Thanks for a wonderful party and a great year! Good luck to you all and especially to your children!

Rebecca and Ms. Barb

Pajama Day

We will be going to mass on Friday, May 27 so PLEASE do NOT send your child to school in his/her pajamas. Have their pj's in either their backpacks or in a bag. As cute as I think it would be to have them in the pj's at mass, I don't think everyone else would feel the same as we do!
Thanks for your cooperation!

How to Use the Blog


Use the tab labeled "Weekly Schedule" to see what we will be doing in the classroom each week.

See the Show and Tell Calendar for your child's day.

The Classroom calendar has important dates for parties, school functions, and also the weekly schedule. If you click on the +GoogleCalendar icon on the bottom right corner of the calendar you can add all the events to your calendar.

See the Photo Gallery tab to see the children playing, for party pictures, and other school events.

On the Documents tab, you will find all the important information that Ms. Barb shares throughout the year, such as allergy information, schedules, and donation information.

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

The most amazing job….
Your tiny baby needs lots of hugs.
Rock her …hold her….she won’t be spoiled! And…
Cherish the moments.
Your toddler must be allowed to make decisions.
Only appropriate for the age…limits are important, and…
Cherish the moments.
Pre-school …patience, explain, pause, laugh, listen, answer every question, and…
Cherish the moments.
School days start.
Encourage friendships, tell her to be a good friend, teach her to treat others as she wants to be treated, and…
Cherish the moments.
School days continue. Be there for her. Guide her.  Support her. Listen to her. Love her no matter what, and…
Cherish the moments.
Pre teen years are confusing for everyone. Be strong. Be supportive. Let make decisions within limits, and …
Cherish the moments.
Teen years can be challenging. Listen. Listen. Listen. Love her especially on the rough days! Hold her with an open hand….and…
Cherish the moments.
College ….you gave her roots now give her wings! …and…
Cherish the moments.
Cherish the memories.

I love this...

from Eliot Wigginton:
We teach, and at the same time allow ourselves to be taught by those we teach. We talk, and at the same time, listen. We experience the world anew through another's eyes. And therein lies the secret of renewal. It comes, in part, from allowing students some of the same positive energy we try to put out into our lives. We refuel each other.
