Ms. Gunther's Pre-K 4's Page

Welcome to 1/2 Day and Full Day Pre-K 4 with Ms. Gunther! I'm so excited to be with you this year as you continue to learn and grow. In preschool we work hard, though our form of work might look like play to everyone else. While we play, we are working on our social/ emotional development, language, math, science, social studies, and religion! Along with playing, we also spend time creating with paints, crayons, markers, paper, and glue. Playing is hard work in preschool! 


Ash Wednesday- Today we had a prayer service with Ms. Jenna, who then gave us our ashes and reminded us to repent and live the gospel as we begin our Lenten journey. 

* More pictures can be found under the media/ pictures page in the albums titled Mardi Gras, and Ash Wednesday.

Wednesday, Feb 8th is the last day for can food donations. We as a class have 32 cans donated so far! There were 2 goals we were trying to reach, the first one was to have every child donate at least one can, the second goal was to reach 60 cans in total. As of today, neither goal has been reached. Can we do it by tomorrow? Only with your help.

Happy Veterans Day! Take a look at our photo album titled Veterans Day to see us planting our flags with our faith partners and us preforming 2 Veterans Day songs for Laura Asplund, the Kindergarten, 1st grade,  and our 4th grade Faith Partners. 
To commemorate Veterans Day our students will be participating in 2 activities with the whole school. 
1) Students will have the opportunity to purchase a small United States flag for $1. I will collect the money from the students and coordinate with their Faith Partners to arrange a time on Wednesday the 9th or Thursday the 10th to plant the flags along the sidewalks on Ionia/Keene.
All proceeds from the purchase of the flags will be donated to the VA as a sign of our gratitude. 
2) Our classroom will decorate our hallway with red, white, and blue stars. We would love to include some information about beloved Veterans. If you know someone who has served in the military, please provide your child with the following information: when they served, where they were stationed, anything unique to their service, including accolades and P.O.W. service.
