March

We’re back from vacation and it’s March! Whether the month comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb only time will tell, but we had fun talking about March and preparing our lion and lamb bulletin board with Ms. Jodrey’s class!

It’s such fun to start thinking about spring and the changes it brings in New England. In Pre-K, anticipating spring helps us understand the special season of Lent and how it helps us anticipate celebrating Jesus’ resurrection at Easter. We continue to talk about and practice being kind, and the children made Lenten promises to add to the school-wide Lenten display Mrs. Noon created in the lobby. The kids came up with such wonderful ideas, most of which involve being kind to others in one way or another!

March also brings our St. Chris STEM Fair on March 8th. We’ll get to showcase some of our winter science learning in our classroom that night, and let our visitors try their hand at a couple of the projects we enjoyed. It was exciting working on the Pre-K auction project, too! It looks like tickets are going fast and our school is set for an exciting auction night on March 24th!

We have progressed to Units 6 and 7 in our math curriculum, and our March math lessons, projects, and games will focus on using different numbers to make 10, sharing 10 items equally, comparing and describing towers of varying numbers of blocks, and using attributes to name shapes.

On March 16th, our whole school has a free dress day - green and white for St. Patrick. We’ll take part in the whole-school Mass, enjoy a simple green snack and learn a bit about St. Patrick and the Irish traditions of St. Patrick’s Day, leprechauns, and rainbows.

There is no school on Good Friday or on Monday, April 2nd. I wish you all a joy-filled Easter when it arrives!
