Kindergarten at Our Savior Lutheran School is a daily routine in a Christian setting where each child is loved, respected and accepted, and in turn, each child learns to love, respect, and accept those around him/her.

The teaching/learning in the classroom is child oriented with a combination teacher led, teacher facilitated atmosphere. Centers are part of the curriculum. An academic, developmental balance is the goal for our kindergarten.

Through many rich and varied experiences the OSLS kindergarten curriculum promotes growth for the social, emotional, creative, spiritual, and intellectual development of each child.


Classroom Letter     January 11

Dear Parents,

Our Bible story was “The Wise Men Visit Jesus”.  We learned that God leads us to faith in Jesus by the Holy Spirit.  We worship Jesus with gifts of love to others. —- Our letter was the letter Pp. —- In math we’re working with numbers to 12. —- Our new science unit is all about squirrels.

On Tuesday, January 22, grades K-2 are going to see the Grand Rapids Symphony and The Ballet perform “Hansel and Gretel”.  A permission slip came home on Monday.  Please return it by Wednesday the 16th.  We will need car seats on Tuesday the 22nd!

There is no school for kindergarten on Thursday and Friday, January 17 & 18.

In Christ,

Chris Mc.



Classroom Letter     December 21

Dear Parents,

Our Bible story tells us that Simeon and Anna waited for God to keep His promise and give His people a Savior.  Jesus came for all the people of the world.   —- Our letter was the letter Cc, and new sight words are:  like, is. —- Thank you for the fun party!  It was great celebrating with first and second grades!

On Tuesday, January 22, kindergarten, first and second grades are going to see “Hansel and Gretel”, a Lollipops Concert by the Grand Rapids Symphony.  Watch for a permission slip after the break.  We will need one driver.

Oops.  I forgot to send home January’s Book-it form.  Our goal for January is still 20 minutes a day for 20 days.  If you keep track, I’ll send the form home after break and you can fill it in later.  You may turn in December’s form after the break.

Blankets came home yesterday – we like to empty lockers for the break.  Please send one back after the break.

Show & Tell for Thursday, January 10 – free choice (a Christmas gift?).

Have a Blessed Christmas!  School resumes on Monday, January 7.

In Christ,

Chris Mc.
