September News 2017

Welcome to Corpus Christi Kindergarten.  I am happy to have your children in my class.  I have always felt that a child’s first introduction to school determines how he or she perceives their future school experience. I hope this year’s class finds kindergarten to be a positive experience in which they can grow spiritually as well as academically.

October is already here and the children are very excited about our upcoming fall activities.  We are learning about St. Francis and his devotion to Jesus, especially his kindness to animals and his love of all God’s creation.  We are also looking forward to our Halloween celebration ant the end of the month.

Please review all the papers that are sent home each night in order to reinforce the skills that have been taught during class.  Be sure to practice the “High Frequency Words” and “Consonant Vowel Consonant Words” that were sent home.  By practicing the words each night the children will become more fluent when reading them therefore they will also become more confident in their reading.  

This month we are learning about Geometry and Patterning in our Math class. Look for solid and plane figure shapes with your children at home.  They are very excited to find objects that look like cylinders, spheres, cubes, cones and rectangular prisms.

June 2017

Dear Parents,


As we approach the end of the year I can’t help

but reflect on the growth and progress your children have made since their
first day of Kindergarten.  This is
always a bittersweet time of the year for me.  While I am happy to see that the children are prepared for
first grade.  I am also a little
sad to let them go.  It has been a
great journey but the journey continues.

Special thanks go to my class moms, Mrs. Finnerty and Mrs. Kloza who were always there with a helping hand to make all of our events so much fun and so successful.  I also want to thank every one who signed up for our class parties and supplies; your contributions were much appreciated.


Please check the web site for information about graduation.


Moving forward please know that I will be here in the future to help your children in anyway I can.  They will always be my children.


Our June Author is James Dean.  (We love Pete the Cat)


I hope you all have a safe and fun filled summer.

God bless you and your families.

Love Mrs. Rocha
