In kindergarten, students learn that God makes them and that Jesus is God’s Son, and they regularly discuss the importance of living our lives like Jesus.  Our classroom has a special prayer corner where students can go and spend quiet time in prayer.  Through various enriching activities, students learn about the beauty and importance of the Christmas and Easter seasons.

Kindergarten engages children in literacy through oral language, literature appreciation, and early reading and writing skills.  Through guided practice, field trips, literature, art, music, and stewardship activities, Kindergarten children begin to acquire the socialization skills necessary to function as living examples of Christ-like behavior, both as individuals and as part of a group, whether it be the family, school, parish, and broader community.  Through guided practice, students begin to develop an understanding of important science concepts, processes, and ideas.

Loving God,

You are the giver of all we possess, the source of all of our blessings. We thank and praise You.

Thank you for the gift of our children.

Help us to set boundaries for them and yet encourage them to explore. Give us the strength and courage to treat each day as a fresh start.

May our children come to know You, the one true God and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

May your Holy Spirit help them to grow in faith, hope, and love so that they may know peace, truth, and goodness.

May their ears hear your voice. May their eyes see your presence in all things. May their lips proclaim your word. May their hearts be your dwelling place. May their hands do works of charity. May their feet walk in the way of Jesus Christ, your Son, and our Lord.
