Our Savior Lutheran Church and Preschool is excited to announce the reopening of our full-day kindergarten program.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2012-2013 school year at 56 Meadows Drive (church location). An open house will be held on April 18, at 6:30 p.m. School hours will be Monday-Thursday, 7:45 a.m.-3:15 p.m., and Friday, 7:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
We are blessed to have Mary Jo Janowsky return as our kindergarten instructor.
Mary Jo attended Houghton College in Western New York two years, and after moving to Colorado with her husband and four children, received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education at Adams State College. She also studied pipe organ and music education at University of Southern Colorado in Pueblo. Mary Jo has 25 years of experience teaching kindergarten and first grade in public and private schools. She especially loves singing with children and,“has a song or rhyme for everything we do.”
Mary Jo has stated, “I try to establish an atmosphere of a happy community who cares about each other, and show it in our words and ways with each other.” So learning takes place at work or play in an attractive classroom, in our case, called “The Land of the Letter People,” a land of 26 huggable “inflatable” people, each with a specific personality, song and weekly take-home newspaper and story. Their activities make learning to read an age-appropriate adventure. Our “Trays and Stations” activities for independent learning, over all the strands of the curriculum are just right for parent involvement to end a happy day together at school.
Please join us on April 18 to learn more, or call 731-3512 for more information.
