Dear Families,

Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten at Blessed Trinity Catholic School!  We are looking forward to working with you and your child.  It will be an exciting school year, packed with fun-filled learning experiences and activities!

Throughout the school year, our class will focus upon learning to identify the letters of the alphabet and learning to produce the unique sound(s) of each individual letter.  Our literacy program will help the children develop phonological awareness (awareness of sounds in spoken words).  The program will also help expand vocabulary, and assist students in developing comprehension skills in reading.

During the school year, the Pre-K class will explore numbers from one to ten and learn to recognize a variety of colors and shapes.  Students will also learn about God’s everlasting love through bible stories, songs, and various projects.

There will be a new classroom theme each month.  Together, we will explore many interesting topics.  During the first few weeks of school, we will be busy establishing our classroom routines.  The children will be learning about our rules and procedures in the classroom and around the school.  As September approaches, our first theme will be “All About Me.”  Additionally in September, the color red, circles, and the letters Aa and Bb will be introduced.

     P.E. class is scheduled for every Monday.  Please make sure your child wears his/her school uniform and tennis shoes.  No school shoes are required on this day.  Tennis shoes must be worn in order for your child to participate in P.E.  Girls are encouraged to wear shorts under their jumpers.
      Library Day is every Wednesday.  Please remember to place your child’s library book in their folder or backpack, so they may be able to check out a new book.
     Since spills and accidents often occur in preschool, we ask that there is always a change of clothing inside your child’s backpack.
     Please know that the staff at Blessed Trinity is committed to making the school as safe as possible.  Before school begins, we ask that you please discuss the idea of social distancing and the importance of hand washing and other sanitary routines with your child.  We will be reinforcing these measures every day in classroom, and sanitizing our school environment repeatedly throughout the day.  We ask that your preschooler has a clean face mask daily, with his/her name written on the front.  In addition, please provide at least one extra face mask inside his/her backpack.  We also ask that you please provide your child with a water bottle each day, that is no larger than 2 1/2 inches in diameter for their personal use.  The school has installed individual cup holders to each of the children’s tables, to avoid the use of the water fountain.
     If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me through the school office (904) 641-6458 or through my school email:  clark@blessedtrinitycatholicschool.org
     Welcome again to Blessed Trinity Catholic School and to the Pre-K program!
                                          May God Bless Our School Year Together!
