It is a pleasure for us to be a part of your child’s beginning steps into their new, exciting and somewhat intimidating adventurous steps into the halls of St. Peters Catholic School. We intend to do our best to foster an inquisitive attitude; one of confidence within themselves and a healthy bond with their classmates and St. Peter’s Teachers and Staff. All within a safe and friendly environment. As you prepare your child, talk about old and new friends, things your child likes to do with friends and how to take care of themselves and their friends.
Give your child an opportunity to play with you and others, as well as to play alone. Enjoy games and activities together. Help your child to be a good sport and engage in fair play. This year will be a very critical period in your child’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. As we strive to nurture and guide your child, we ask and look forward to your direct involvement in our efforts.
Books you read together at home count to prepare your child – so please pick up a book every day! Read to your child and have your child tell stories to you. Have your child sit next to you and use your finger to guide your child’s eyes to the words as you read them. Doing so, will help them to recognize word characters. Together, enjoy the excitement, feelings, and ideas found in books. Also, let your child look at books, magazines, and pictures alone. Children can read pictures. This is a step towards reading print.
Share a few minutes alone with your child each day. The gift of your time is precious. Before you know it, your child will have traveled years into the future!
Have a great summer!
