Sacred Heart Cathedral Catholic School - Dodge City, KS

April Fun!

This month literally blew right by!  There were days at recess I was worried we would blow away with how strong the wind was!  We survived and learned a lot as well!  We finished our letters of the alphabet, which was such a great accomplishment for the students.  We learned so much about spring and the weather.  We also had so much fun exploring the church and learning about all the objects we see everyday.  Check out our newsletter for more details!

March Madness

March blew in and flew right by!  Between Spring Break and Easter, we didn't have many days in the classroom, but we sure made the most of them.  My favorite thing we did was learning about Easter Week and all the fun activities we did.  Between water color painting, making play dough crown of thorns, and learning about the Stations of the Cross, the students were able to explore what Easter is all about.  

Check out our newsletter for more info on what we did!

The Reason for the Season

December has been a fast and busy month!  There's so many wonderful activities, books, crafts, and service projects you can do this month.  And although we had fun reading Gingerbread Man stories and making reindeers, I hope the students found the most fun in learning about Jesus' birth.  It's such a wonderful story that never gets old.  So as Advent draws to an end, I hope everyone takes a moment or two to read the story of Jesus' birth, or ask your student to tell it to you!   

Merry Christmas!

Thankful November

We have so much to be thankful for this month!  We had so much fun coming up with things we are thankful for along with learning about pilgrims, Indians, and our different traditions we have for Thanksgiving.  We tackled two long stories in the bible this month, Joseph and Moses, and began learning the Our Father.  

We are also gearing up for Advent as we wait patiently to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  

Have a blessed holiday season!

Super September

September was SUPER!  The students worked on fine motor, spelling and writing our names, shapes, colors, and began Letter of the Week.  We have had so much fun reading books, making crafts, enjoying our centers, and getting to know our friends even more.  This month we also focused on GOODNESS by being "bucket fillers" to our friends.  We are eager to move into October and get ready for PUMPKINS!

Guardian Angel Prayer

The preschoolers continue to be super busy and have so much fun as well explore and learn about our senses, apples,colors, shapes, and begin to tackle the alphabet.   Next week, we will be celebrating the Archangels (September 29) and our Guardian Angel (October 2).  Students are starting to learn our first prayer, the Guardian Angel Prayer.  We are also working on the Sign of the Cross and how to genuflect.  


Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, my guardian dear

To whom God's love commits me here. 

Ever this day, be at my side

To light and guard, to rule and guide.


Awesome August

What a great beginning to our school year.  It has been such a joy to get to know my new students.  They are a great and fun bunch.  We have been busy already working on classroom manners, expectations, and routines in our classroom.  We have also read some wonderful stories and made some great projects.  We will be busy, busy, busy all year long!  Please check back often as I will try to update with pictures and special happenings in our classroom.  I will also always post our monthly newsletter!
