 Hello, my name is Mrs. Caryl Deelo.  Welcome to my kindergarten website! I value the importance of teacher/parent interaction and recognize you for your effort to be involved.  I hope this will provide you with useful information about our classroom. Throughout the year I will update events and include homework assignments.  I will send a weekly newsletter home by email every Friday to keep you informed about our activities from the week. This gives you an opportunity to ask open ended/specific questions with the knowledge of what already happened. Thank you for sharing your child with me.  This is my 20th year teaching kindergarten at Immacolata. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to have the best job ever!!

STONE SOUP ACTIVITY - THURSDAY 14th

During the month of November we will study nutrition/food, how to set a table, manners, etc.  We will read the book STONE SOUP.

It all starts with a stone in a pot.

Please send a snack with your child starting Monday, Nov. 25th (or before if doesn’t spoil). I have a refrigerator to store the food until Tuesday.  The list is provided below:

Dear "KD" (Kindergarten Deelo) Parents,

Welcome to Immacolata Kindergarten! The first day is just around the corner! I'm looking forward to meeting you all on Wednesday, August 28th! Here is an outline of helpful tips and information. You may want to make a HARD COPY OF THESE PAGES to highlight and help organize your "to do list".  There is a lot of information and more to come, which will be a huge benefit especially if you are a new family at this school. It's a lot to take in, so here we go!

Important Dates:

August:

Sunday, August 25th - Backpack Sunday 9:30 Mass

Monday, August 26th - Full day for 1st - 8th Grade

Wednesday, August 28th - First Day for Kindergarten - Noon Dismissal - Pick up across from rectory

 - SCHOOL SUPPLIES

You do not need to label any school supplies...ONLY FOLDERS, HEADPHONES, SCISSORS AND KINDERMATS.  If you already did that's ok too. Tip: Larger headphones work best instead of ear buds.

 - SUNDAY 25th - 9:30 BACKPACK BLESSING MASS 

If you are able to attend please return to your car after mass to get the large bag of supply items and walk upstairs (or take elevator near office) to the 3rd floor. My is room directly across from the elevator.  I will have boxes and tables labeled displaying WHERE to set each supply like a scavenger hunt. If you will not attend 9:30 mass please wait until 10:30 to arrive since I won’t be in my classroom. If you are unable to attend both mass and supply drop off on Sunday, you may drop off items Monday or Tuesday before our first day Wednesday. 

 - LUNCH 

NO need for lunch boxes the first 3 half days.

- HOT LUNCH

If you have questions please go to our webpage - www.immacolata.org or contact our office.  kgaskell@immacolata.org

*BRING LUNCH TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd UNLESS YOU ORDERED HOT LUNCH 

 - WATER BOTTLE (not on supply list) 

Bring a water bottle (name labeled) to save time walking to the fountain. My past parents had a couple routines… 1)Leave the bottle to refill at school all week and wash on the weekends. 2) OR Form a habit of bringing it home daily, but knowing it's ok to forget sometimes.  I don't mind if you put ice inside for hot days.

 - ALLERGIES

- Please email me if your child has any type of allergy. cldeelo@immacolata.org

 - SNACKS

WHOLE SCHOOL CLASSROOM RULE -NO PEANUT SNACKS INSIDE CLASSROOMS. It's ok in the Cafeteria.

Bring a SNACK EVERY DAY. We will eat snacks with 1st and 2nd grades outside during recess.

 

TWO OPTIONAL SNACK TIPS: 1) Pack snacks in the EASY FRONT POCKET of the backpack every time for consistency. 2) Pack 5 small packaged snacks for the whole week so you don't forget each morning.....depending if it's small, and nothing that will spoil. 3) OR just form a good habit of having your child independently grab a snack from a box with a variety in your pantry.

- PLEASE DONATE "EXTRA" SNACKS for those who forget. You may bring them along with your supplies or on another day. Ideas: Teddy Grahams/graham crackers, fruit snacks, pretzels, granola/fruit bars, Cheeze Its, Goldfish

Ok...HERE IS A SUMMARY!

 

* Sunday, Aug. 25th 9:30 Mass Backpack Blessing (optional)- Bring in Supplies after mass.

* Not available Sunday?...Bring supplies Monday or Tuesday setting them on a round table or on the floor. I will be in and out of my room.

 *** FIRST DAY!!! Wednesday, August 28th

BRING EVERY DAY:

1. Backpack

2. Snack (inside front zipper pocket of backpack)

3. Water bottle (name labeled)

BACKPACK HOOKS are in the HALLWAY. Walk your child in and find buckets labeled "water bottles" and "snacks" as you walk in the door. One of many "walk in routines" will be placing those items inside the buckets.

 Please stay just long enough for me to take a picture of you with your child before saying good-bye. I will have activities on the tables to keep them busy. If you need to leave quickly for work, let me know so I can get your picture right away.

 * NOON pick up location for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday is in the hallway in front of the office or outside the doors. 

* New families will receive a "WEDNESDAY FOLDER" which contains school wide information. Put checks, order forms, or anything else that needs to go to the office inside and return in backpacks to my class.

* TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd - FIRST FULL DAY OF SCHOOL

8:15 (1st bell rings to walk up to class)

8:30 (2nd bell rings tardy if not in the classroom) You may walk them up if needed, but they should be independent after the first full week unless there is an exception.

Bring lunch box if not ordering hot lunch.

3:10 DISMISSAL out the BACK door. Please follow the school dismissal procedure in the handbook. Park your car (in line) and stand where your child will see you when he/she walks out. Follow what other parents do.

LAST THING:

If your spouse did not receive this email and WOULD LIKE TO for all future emails, please

contact the school office and give the secretary the email address. I see a few families

 Please email or call me about any questions.

Cell# 314-359-0756 (best)

School# 991-5700 x422

I will do my best to check my messages frequently from home and school.

Looking Ahead...

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK! 

Sunday, January 27--Open House and Catholic Schools Week Kick-off Mass

Catholic Schools Week January 27th - February 1st - Please find the Daily Schedule inside your Wednesday Folder. Put somewhere in your home ready to read daily.  There is a lot of information

PLEASE PUT ON YOUR CALENDAR!  Friday Feb. 1st is MISSIONCARNIVAL. YOU OR ANOTHER ADULT MUST BE PRESENT.  Wednesday, January 30th is PARENT/CHILD LUNCH 11:30 ARRIVE EARLY!

PARENT CHILD LUNCH tips...

 

  1. Give yourself plenty of time to pick up a lunch, because most of the drive thru's and restaurants in our area will be full of Immacolata and St. Mary Magdalen parents!  Maybe even order ahead of time.   FYI I order Bread Co from their website requesting the pick up time and do the quick pick up.....in and out fast!
  2. Being early is better than late.  
  3. Meet your child in our hallway at 11:15ish OR let your child know if you will meet in the cafeteria or gym.  Tell them which room to meet if you are late. Bring a blanket in case no more seats at tables. My substitute will walk the students to the cafeteria and stand in the back by the restrooms, so keep an eye out for us.
  4. Recess after lunch whenever finished: You must stay with your child to get coats and walk outside to the playground after you eat.  Teachers will arrive to help monitor.  You may stay and watch until we go inside. If you are still outside when the whistle blows I may need your help gathering my students since all the grades will be out there (a LOT of kiddos).  I want to be sure everyone is safe walking in with me/sub (if not back yet).

 

 

 

The 100th day of school is Thursday, January 17th.   We will have a celebration in our classroom.  

This will be a fun day and provide many opportunities for students to practice working with numbers-counting by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s to 100, grouping items in different ways, and solving problems. In preparation for this day  help your child choose and count 100 objects that are small no larger than a clementine.  Please help your child count by ones to make 10 piles of 10 items.  Next count by tens with your child as you put them into a bag.  You may also like to try counting the objects in other ways, such as by 2’s or 5’s.  

 

 

EXTRA: Mrs. Di would like students to bring in 100 small stuffed animals to fill the aquarium outside of the library. If possible, please send a couple of animals sometime between now and Thursday.  Stuffed animals will be given back. 

 

Please send a bag of items to school before or on Thursday, January 17th
