Please contact Principal Jessica Scanzon at jscanzon@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

It was our first full week of the New Year and it was an exciting one!  Here’s a recap for each of our classrooms.

Our youngest class is exploring the season of fall and talking about wind.  Rainbow Room is also focusing on exploring the topic of baptism.  Mrs. Bozick even brought in her own baptism picture to share with the students.

Mrs. Paulus’ class is focusing on rain.  Very appropriate this time of year, don’t you think?  J  They are doing some great counting activities related to rain as well as creating rain clouds in various ways.  Green Room is also learning about the letter “U”.

Red Room is learning about the season of winter and snow!  They are reviewing the lower case letters c, o, and q.  Mrs. Michelson is also teaching the kids about kindness and how important it is that we treat others kindly.  They also had some visitors at their recess time from Northwest School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

Ms. Baek has been working on the letter “S” and reviewing the numbers 1-10.  They are also learning about the sun and what it is made of.  Yellow Room has been working on fine motor skills, doing things such as cutting.

All of our Pre-K classes walked over to the elementary school and experienced a Discovery Friday with the Kindergarten classes.  Our students really enjoy experiencing this with the Kindergarten students.  It’s always fun to experience learning in a new environment!  Each classroom talked about snow.  They all had learning circle time together, once everyone was settled into their classrooms.  Then we were able to experiment!  Each child was able to make their own snowflake out of toothpicks and marshmallows. After that project was complete, each child was given a vile of “snow”.  They added the water and instantly, the snow in their hand expanded.  All of the students had a wonderful time and were even able to take home their snowflakes they had made, as well as the fake snow.

We also had a delightful Chapel that Mrs. Scanzon and Mrs. Kim led.  It was all about our “God Thoughts.”  Mrs. Scanzon and Mr. Hill got to try out their acting skills, playing as two young students in class. Mrs. Scanzon was building with blocks, when Mr. Hill came over and knocked down her tower!  Mrs. Scanzon had thoughts about how mean Mr. Hill was and how sad she felt, but then she paused and began to think about her “God Thoughts.”  Her “God Thoughts” helped her to realize that instead of Mr. Hill being mean, maybe he just needed a friend. The students were also able to contribute to the Chapel presentation. They all did a wonderful job shouting out suggestions on how we can help Mr. Hill to use his words, as well as helping Mrs. Scanzon realize that Mr. Hill just needed someone to be his friend.
