Welcome to the Pre-Kindergarten Classroom Blog!  We will blog and post pictures here throughout the week. This is where you can find all important information pertaining to our classroom. Please be sure to "subscribe" to our blog so that you can receive notifications when a new post is made.

What an exciting beginning to our 90th year at Holy Child Academy! The HCA Class of 2027 is ready to learn and have a great year in Pre-K!

We have spent most of the past week and a half getting to know one another. We discussed our classroom rules and routines and everyone "signed" our classroom contract.  

The boys and girls have been eager to build friendships with their new classmates. They are learning to work together to complete simple tasks.

One of the students' favorite things so far has been visiting our brand new STEAM Lab. The boys and girls used Zometools to build shapes with a partner and then they connected their creations together to make one big class project.

The Pre-K students were able to meet our school mascot, "Blaze," the HCA Dragon! They had a great time running with him on the field.  

Be sure to sign up your child up to race Blaze at the HCA 5K Run/Walk and Dragon Dash on September 23! For details, visit

Some reminders:
  • Scholastic Reading Club catalogs were sent home. All orders are due by Friday, September 22.  Orders may be sent into school or you can order online at with class code H7WXZ.
  • Please remember to send in your "Meet and Greet" Questionnaire, emergency form, and supplies if you have not already done so. Also, please empty and return your child's folder every day.  
  • Please send in a pair of inexpensive, basic headphones in a Ziploc bag with your child's name. We will be introducing the children to the iPads in our classroom shortly. We will keep the headphones in the children's cubbies so they can use them independently.

Looking ahead:

Our first Show and Tell will be next Wednesday, September 20. The topic will be "My Favorite Thing." Please prepare your child to tell the class what they are sharing and why it is their favorite thing. We are eager to see what the children have to share so we can continue to learn more about one another!

Have a great week!
