February 10-14, 2020

What a busy week we had in school!

Have you heard? We have pen-pals! We are exchanging letters with a Pre-K class from Plano, Texas! We received our first letter from them and already responded. The boys and girls are so excited about our mail unit - and we need your help! Since we are already learning about maps and geography, we want to tie these two concepts together to see how many places from around the world that we can receive mail from. Tell your family and friends that live both near and far to write to us so we can add a pin to our map! Please send all postcards, letters, and cards to: 

Mrs. Barrera's Pre-K Class
Holy Child Academy
475 Shadeland Avenue
Drexel Hill, PA 19026

Our mailbox is ready and the children can't wait to see when our next piece of mail will arrive! Thanks in advance for your help! This unit will run through March 20.

The Pre-K students did an amazing job with their items for show and tell this week. How many things that begin with /h/ do you see?

While we know it's not because of the earth's gravitational pull or because of the vernal equinox, it's still pretty cool to see a broom stand up all by itself! 

We had tons of fun celebrating Valentine's Day with our school families and sharing soft pretzels for snack. Thank you for all the treats you sent in for the students and the teachers! 

Looking ahead:
  • There will be no show and tell next week. Our next show and tell will be on Monday, February 24 and the topic will be something that starts with /l/.
  • Get your tickets for the HCA Auction on Saturday, February 29!  We are counting down the days until this fun night celebrating our community. More information can be found here.
  • Re-enrollment forms for the 2020-2021 school year are due March 6.

Have a great weekend!
