Pre-K 1 - Ms. Kelley
Welcome you to Pre-K at St. Luke School. We are very proud of the program we have to offer your children and are thankful that you have entrusted your child to us as they begin their primary school education. We realize that a child's initial school experience is one that they carry forward with them through their years in school and I strive to make their first experience not only educational but also fun and nurturing, with a love of Christ.
For some of you, this is old news as you've sent a sibling off to school and have dealt with the normal anxieties and fears that come with being a parent sending your child out on this wonderful new adventure. For others, this may be a little overwhelming and I will be here to ease your anxiety as well as any your child may have. This is an exciting time for your child and I will see that we all make the most of it!
Our class is known as Pre-K 1, as there are two Pre-K classes at St.Luke School this year. When you wish to stay up-to-date on your child's school activities, this page will be the place to start. As our school year progresses you will find notices, homework information, important dates to remember and other important information. Headings will be posted in Red with information posted below. Many of the items will also be links to documents (either Word or Pdf) that you can download should you wish. Please bookmark this page and check back often.
