Kindergarten - Miss Narkis


Welcome to Kindergarten! If you have any questions or concerns, please send me in a note with your child.

I have been part of the teaching staff here at St. Chris for over 15 years and love it. I also taught for 10 years in the public school prior to coming to St. Chris. My whole career has focused on the early childhood years. I find that kindergarten is a challenging but very fun level to teach and at St. Chris I’m pleased to be able to include a spiritual component to my teaching.

Mrs. Irene Foran is the Kindergarten aide for Miss Narkis.

November Class News 2010

We ended the last day of October with limitless fun!  It was Dress down day, Hat day, Pizza with parents day, Popcorn day, Party snacks day, and Gym day!!!  What an exciting and memorable day.  Thanks to everyone for your effort and contribution in making all of it possible.  The children truly enjoyed it and their hats were terrific.Laughing

November brings with it our next unit of study involving Native American culture and Thanksgiving.  Many of you have been preparing and providing materials for our upcoming Native American day and we want you to know how much we appreciate all you have done.  As the Lakota say -pilamaya! (THANKYOU!)  On Native American day the children will be:  painting a cover for our teepee frame, making an authentic native stick game, creating a beaded bearclaw necklace, and making a feathered headband.

In the weeks ahead we will also learn about the journey of the Pilgrims and their life in the new land.

Do you know that lions never lie?  Well they don't when it comes to their body language.  You can tell a lot about a lion's mood just by observing its' ears and tail position.  The lion is our character animal for this month and it centers around truthfulness.

Here are some upcoming events for this month:

Tues. Nov. 2 Nashua Fire Dept. is visiting

Wed. Nov. 3 Picture retakes

Fri. Nov. 5 School Mass 9:15   Sr. Joan Winn (our adopted nun) will also make her first monthly visit to our class on this date.

Thurs. Nov. 18 KN Parent teacher conferences (7:50-8:30 am)

KN Class News for October

October has come so quickly! It is hard to believe that our first month of school has passed. We have had a terrific start to our year and we have much to look forward to in the days ahead. This month we will have our first art project with Mrs. Mansperger as part of the St. Chris Fine Arts program. We have many little artists in KN who are sure to enjoy this program.


We would like to thank Mrs. Brown for making arrangements for both kindergarten classes to visit with officers from the Nashua PD. They will be talking to the children about safety topics such as wearing a helmet when biking etc.


We have already met four of our letter friends and this month we'll meet the next four (E-H). The children are strengthening their phonics skills daily through repeated songs, games and worksheet practice.


We continue to review numbers 1-10 including proper formation, value sense, sequencing and number combinations.


Our second class book is about Autumn and is based on a poem that we had memorized. The children liked it so much that we decided to recite it for our friends in first and second grade.


We have also officially met our wonderful 5th grade buddies who were very warm and welcoming. The children are quickly developing a special bond which they will enjoy in the months ahead.


Our character trait for the month is obedience-a very important exercise for all of us.


Please don't forget Friday Oct. 29th! The children will need their decorated hats for Hat Day and the Parent-Pizza Luncheon which will be from 12:00-1:00pm. Hope to see you there1
