Welcome To Ms. Beaudrie's Preschool Class
Dear Preschool Families,
Welcome to Preschool! I am looking forward to an exciting year filled with much growth, fun and hands-on learning. My wish is to instill a positive love for learning that will last a lifetime. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing their faces light up when they learn something new.
To start off, I would like to tell you a little about myself both personally and professionally. I am a graduate of Western Michigan University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. I have minors in French, Math, Science, and Early Childhood Education. I have taught preschool for 19 years and am excited to begin my eleventh year with Monroe Catholic Elementary School. I am the mother of five beautiful children. I have three girls’ age 22, 21, 18 and two boys’ who are 17 and 13. They keep me busy but I love it! In my spare time, I enjoy vacations, reading, going on walks, watching movies, shopping and spending time with my family.
It is my goal to ensure your child’s preschool experience is full of growth academically, spiritually, and socially. Always remember that learning is a continuous process and change is a part of growth. Therefore, learning is open to meet the needs of each child.
In order to know your child better and to help guide my teaching, I am asking for your help. Please fill out the attached questionnaire about your child. This will help me get to know your child as a person, learner, and thinker. Please turn in this questionnaire by Thursday, September 1st.
I would like to work closely together with you, and I believe frequent communication is vital. I will be using our classroom website as an extra form of communication. I will post our weekly newsletters and any other upcoming events. You can also check the bulletin board outside our classroom door and your child's folder for important information, as well as signing up for REMIND text service. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I would love to talk whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together!
Our Mission: Monroe Catholic Elementary Schools is a Christ-centered, Catholic learning community committed to the academic excellence and spiritual development of every student.
"My Promise to You"
I promise you every day your child will learn something.
Some days they will bring it home in their hands.
Some days they will bring it home in their heads,
And some days they will bring it home in their hearts.
- We will have gym on Wednesday. Don’t forget to wear our preschool shirts and gym shoes.
- We will be having garden on Tuesdays. Please dress your child in old clothes that can get dirty. You may want to send some boots for them to wear as well.
- Please make sure that you are checking your child’s folder daily and that your child is coming to class prepared.
- There will be no school on Monday May 29th due to Memorial Day. School will resume on Tuesday, May 30th.
- On Monday, June 5th, we will have show and tell. The students are invited to bring in something that starts with the first letter in their name to share with the class.
- On June 7th, we will have our Preschool Family Picnic from 10:00-12:00pm at Waterloo Park. Parents will need to drive and stay with their child. Please return permission slips.
- June 8th will be our last day of school (No afternoon Latchkey). This will be a half day of school and dismissal will be at 11:30am.
The health and safety of our Monroe Catholic School students is our top priority. Due to the impact sugary snacks have on the health and behavior of our students, along with the sensitivity/severity of several types of allergies on both our St. Michael and St. John Campuses, edible birthday treats cannot be passed out at school this year.
Students that would like to bring in birthday treats for their classmates may share something that is non-edible such as pencils, stickers, small toys, etc. Edible birthday treats have too much of an impact on our school day and will be sent home if they are sent to school. We want our children to feel special on their big day but believe we can achieve this through non-edible treats and other special attention in their classroom. Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and attention to this policy.
