Kindergarten

St. Petronille offers full day Kindergarten which allows for enrichment of academic skills. The kindergarteners also have weekly specials which include gym, library, art and music.

Our religion curriculum focuses on the love of Jesus, self and others. Our faith is integrated throughout the daily curriculum. We foster recognition of God’s love in the child’s everyday life using Bible stories, daily prayer, and opportunities to attend school Masses and prayer services.

We have a 90 minute literacy block. During this block we use the Daily 5 for differentiated instruction, phonemic awareness activities, comprehension skills, and writing.

Using the Harcourt Math series, the kindergarten children participate in a wide variety of mathematical activities that consist of hands on experiences, discussion, and exploration.

Kindergarten is involved in school-wide service projects. Local service projects are child created and enable the child to share with others in need. These include Glen Ellyn PADS and our parish Christian Ministries.

Kindergarten participates in many outings to enrich our curriculum such as a science field trip to the Morton Arboretum to study nature. We also have a 100 day project that incorporates math, social studies and religion.

We welcome the parents to many different activities throughout the year such as Pumpkin Math, Thanksgiving Together Day, 100 Day and Field Day.
