Our Faith Can Move Mountains

Quick Reminders
  • FIELD DAY - Friday, May 20 - Preschool wears RED for Field Day.  
    • Rubber soled gym shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or Crocs with straps. No flip flops or sandals.
    • Casual bottoms
    • Bring a water bottle & towel. There will be water games.
    • Apply sunscreen in advance.
    • School lunch is a hamburger on a bun.  We will eat outside.
  • END YEAR PARTY - Monday, May 23, from 9 am to 11 am is our Preschool/STEM End of Year Party and Petting Zoo, Rain date, Tuesday, May 24th.  We will use the St. Malachy School Playground and the west lawn of our school.  All St. Malachy Catholic Preschool students and parents are invited to our end of year party!  Only preschool students and parents may attend – not siblings.  If Monday is not a regular attendance day for your child, you will be responsible for your child on this day.
    • Please send in a sack lunch and drink for your child the day of the party.  If your child has any other allergy related to animals, there will be other activities for them to participate in.  If you wish, please bring a blanket or lawn chairs for seating.  
    • To offset the cost of this fun event, we are asking that each child who plans on attending will donate $6.00 - $10.00.  Please send the money in an envelope to school with your child by Wednesday, May 18, marked “End of Year Party.”
  • CLASS DOJO - Please know that most of the behavior that is reported is very age appropriate, and we will work with each student to correct the behavior. If at any time we have a serious behavior issue that requires immediate attention or are needing extra parent support for a specific behavior, we will notify you via email or phone call.
