Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it. ~Proverbs 22:6
What a blessing it is to be the Pre-K teacher here at St. Bruno. I feel truly blessed to be a part of this family of faith. I am also very grateful for the opportunity to have your child in my class this year. There is never a dull moment in the ELC. We stay busy each day with so much learning and fun! As we move closer to spring we find our days even more full of exciting activities and kindergarten-readiness preparations. We are going to finish out an exciting year with many lasting memories! If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact me any time.

Treats from Charlie’s travels! Thanks Hanna Rux!!
We were so blessed to celebrate Catholic Schools Week and participate in many of the activities with the “big” school. We had lots of fun and made lasting memories!
THANKS A huge thanks Mrs. Hanna Rux for taking the time to bake and bring cookies and decorating supplies to our classroom. The children had a great time decorating and eating the cookies she brought. It was a fun Christmas activity for us all.They each got two cookies to decorate. Most of them ate one and took the other home. Hopefully they shared with you because they were delicious!
Can Food Drive
I just wanted to thank everyone who donated can goods for our collection in November! I am so impressed by your huge generosity in all we do. The kids enjoyed looking through the various items that came in each day and loved piling them into the box to be delivered. These items went along with the goods that the “big school” collected and we were grateful Mr. Senior sent over some older students to carry our heavy box to be loaded up and delivered. Always so much team work going on here… I LOVE it!
Operation Christmas Child
A HUGE “thank you” to all those who packed shoeboxes for us for Operation Christmas Child. What a blessing it was to receive these gifts from so many! I am thrilled to know that these boxes will be shared around the world with children who need them most. Not only will these children receive a special gift, maybe even once in a lifetime gift, but they will be able hear and receive the Good News of Jesus’ love in their very own language! That is the best gift ever!!! Thanks again for your willingness to help with this project. I hope you and your child had as much fun shopping for and packing these boxes as we did introducing this project to them. They were all so excited to look through each box that came in just to see what special things were packed for these boys and girls! Thank you to Mr. Thompson and the 8th Grade St. Vincent DePaul Society for helping out too!

Pre-K Authors and Illustrators
Check out some of the stories your children helped to author and illustrate! The kids love it when we get to sit together on the carpet and use our imaginations. I give the kids a story prompt, then each person gets a turn to add something to the story. Some of our stories get very interesting and we try to remind the children that the story needs to make some sense as a whole. They are beginning to understand “cause and effect” and are using that concept to bring their story to a sensible conclusion. The kids love to hear each finished product, and love to laugh at those parts they’ve added personally. Some days we allow the kids to illustrate their portion of the story, and we are hoping to form these stories and pictures into our own classroom “books”.
