Principal’s Corner

Hard to believe that Spring is already here! The students are noticing it every day. We can’t have recess without one or more of them running up to the teachers and asking us to look at the new flowers they have discovered, or the caterpillar they found. It is so fun to watch their joy in discovering the first signs of spring all around our beautiful campus.

An exciting event coming up for the whole school is the Science Fair on April 10th. Not only will we get to see how talented our St. Paul students are in science with their displays, we will have Mad Science here showing us some great experiments, and letting us do some hands-on projects.

Everyone was really busy this month in their classrooms. Mrs. Prehm’s preschool classes celebrated Dr. Seuss this month by making crazy animal hats and “foot” books where they measured their own feet. Their bible story this month was about Jesus feeding the 5000. In Mrs. Jones’ preschool classes the students are starting a Grocery Store unit for creative play. They have a new Handwriting Without Tears writing center and made Spring Break books. Both classes made Leprechaun traps out of recycled art materials, it was so fun to see their creativity and excitement!

Our Kindergarten class led a chapel titled” Barnyard Prayers” this month. They did a fabulous job memorizing animal prayers and they even changed costumes in the middle of the chapel! They have also been studying and artistically depicting all of the new spring flowers found around St. Paul. The First and Second graders continue to work hard in math. The First graders are learning how to tell digital and analog times on their clocks. The Second graders started a savings and checking account and are learning what those are all about. In religion they learned how God answers our prayers in the way He knows best, not always how we want. Finally, the Third and Fourth graders are getting ready for round two of State Testing. In Math they began a new unit in Geometry and are studying the Midwest in Social Science. Their class was showcased in a chapel led by our amazing Music Teacher,

Mrs. Walker. They were able to sing two beautiful songs in front of the whole school.

Please remember I have an open door policy. I would love to answer any questions for concerns you have, as well as share all the great things about our school with you!

Blessings,

Shannon Freudenthal
