My name is Sara Leonard. I have been a member of St Mary's for 8 years. I taught first grade faith formation for four years and this is my first year teaching Kindergarten. I am so happy to be back after taking a year off to rest. It brings me great joy to share God's love with children.
I am a stay-at-home mom to my six kids, who I homeschool. I love spending time with my family and traveling to new places, and just spending time in our beautiful world God created. In my free time, I love to crochet, and read.
September Class Notes:
Hello Kindergarten Families,
We are so happy and blessed to get to spend time with your wonderful children each Wednesday afternoon.
We just wanted to give you a brief overview of what we have been doing in class. Our first week together, we started a year long project called bucket filling. Your child brought home a little bucket to remind them to be "bucket fillers". Our purpose in this project is to have the children thinking of spreading the love of Jesus to others. Each week before we start class, we will be asking the kids to tell us one thing they did during the week to fill someone's bucket.
Last week we were lucky to have Fr Dave in class. He told us Jesus' parable of the lost sheep. We also did a sheep craft.
Most weeks we will be doing a lesson on the upcoming gospel for Sunday. Some of these gospels can be difficult to bring down to primary level. On those weeks, we may do a different Bible lesson. However, we will still do activities in their books and weeklies handout.
Thank you again for sharing your children with us each week! They are a joy to have in class.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me or call me. My phone number is 231-788-2127.
God Bless you all,
Ms. Sara & Ms. Julie
