Our eggs have arrived and they are in the incubator!  We are all very excited about our chicken eggs! Hopefully your child had a chance to show you what they learned about the inside of an egg.  Next week we will be “candling” (like an ultrasound) the eggs for the first time. This will give us an opportunity to see how many of our eggs have growing chicks inside. We’ll keep you posted! You are welcome to stop by and take a look at the eggs. I know the children are anxious to show you the incubator and eggs, but PLEASE remember to stop by only when I’m in the room.   We have to be very careful that we do NOT get too close to the table so that the incubator doesn’t get bumped.   We don’t want to hurt “our babies.”   Once again, if I am in the classroom you are more than welcome to stop in either before or after school (On most days I’m at school until 3:30.). Thanks for your understanding! We’ll keep you posted and let you know when the BIG day arrives!


Mark your calendars for VIP day on Friday, April 22nd. For those of you that are new to St. Rose, this is our version of “Grandparents Day,” however, we know it’s not always possible for grandparents to attend so your child can bring any VERY IMPORTANT PERSON that they would like to share with their St. Rose Family.  Please be sure to fill out the registration form that came home on Wednesday.  Please return the form and lunch payment for your VIP’s by April 20th so that we can prepare for this very SPECIAL day!

The schedule is as follows:

9:00-9:30     Registration in the atrium.  VIP’s may visit student’s rooms at this time.

10:00-11:00 Mass in church.

11:15-12:00   Lunch served in the PLC.

12:15-1:15 (approx.) Program in the PLC.

Children will be allowed to leave with their grandparents or VIPs following the program, after letting the teacher know.   Students not leaving will remain with the teacher until normal dismissal time.  Extended care and buses will run as usual.  If your child WILL be leaving with their VIP after the program, please send me a note or send me an e-mail so I can make note of it.  I must have this in writing in order to let your child leave at 1:30 on VIP day.  Thank you!


The Kindergarten program will be on Wednesday, May 18th at 6:30 p.m. in the PLC.   The children will be performing a short program and will be receiving a certificate of completion for all of their accomplishments this year followed by a small reception.  The children will be expected to MEMORIZE a poem (s) for our program. These poems will come home in NEXT week’s Friday folder so please keep an eye out for these. We do have a small class this year so there’s a possibility that your child will have 2 poems, but I wouldn’t ask them to do anything I didn’t think they were capable of doing.  I know as a “past Kindergarten parent,” it can get tiresome listening to the poem over & over, but it really helps the children to feel more comfortable on their big night if they are well prepared. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed! THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!
