Kindergarten

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.

Dear Parents,

Our Bible story was “Paul is Shipwrecked”.  We learned that God is always with us, and that He delivers us from our troubles, especially from sin, death, and the devil. —- Our letter this week was the letter Zz.  New sight words are:  here, to, up. —- Our new chapter in math has to do with time.

On Tuesday, June 4, we will eat lunch with our houses.  House Chemnitz was the winning house at the Fun Run, so they will be treated to a hot lunch.  Congratulations to Adam and Samuel who will have hot lunch on Tuesday!  Thank you, PTL!

On Thursday afternoon we will see the movie, “Follow That Bird” and have popcorn and juice.  There will be no Show & Tell next week.

You are invited to the Awards Assembly on Friday (June 7) at 8:35 a.m. in the gym.

Chapel next week will be on Friday at 11:00.  It is our last day of school for the year.

Please turn in 3rd trimester church attendance forms.

See you at the musical tonight!  Please bring your kindergartner to the classroom at 6:45 (not before), wearing his/her costume.

In Christ,

Chris Mc.

Classroom Letter     May 24

Dear Parents,

Our Bible story this week was the story of Pentecost.  God wants all people to hear of Jesus and to come to faith in Him as their Savior. —- Our letter was the letter Yy. —- On Wednesday Mrs. Lawrence from WMLHS visited with a science (engineering) activity.  With a given number of building materials (marshmallows and toothpicks), students each designed and built a gale-proof house for one of the three little pigs. —- Thank you to the parents who came to the track meet today!

Do you have any questions about a cowpoke costume for the musical?  Our dress rehearsal is on Friday morning (5/31).  Please send your child’s costume to school so that he/she may change into it.  I will send the costumes home and students should wear them that evening for the performance.  The musical begins at 7:00, and students may come to the classroom at 6:45.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Show & Tell for Thursday – free choice.  (You could bring last week’s choice, since we missed Show & Tell because of the power outage.)

In Christ,

Chris Mc.
