Ms. Sue Power, Preschool

Hello! My name is Sue Power. This is my sixteenth year of being a teacher and my third year at St. John Fisher. I am so excited to be working with your children this year in the part-time preschool program. A few facts about me are: Ever since I can remember, I always wanted to be a teacher. My love for reading extends from getting engrossed in a great book to choosing and reading books to my students. I believe in daily exercise and if my knees would cooperate, I would love to run a marathon, if I could. I also like to incorporate exercise in my classroom with movement, dancing and yoga. I am interested in anything related to science and I love to see my students faces light up when we mix up something as simple as baking soda and vinegar. I live in Evergreen Park and I have four fantastic adult children who thankfully are all doing well and in great careers of their own. I love going to the city and am a big Sox fan. A great evening for me is coming home from school, taking a walk and then sitting down to a great meal or going out to dinner with friends. I am proud to say that I am a product of Catholic school and that tradition remained the same for my own children as well. I really enjoy teaching my preschoolers about all of the wonderful things God has given us. I also enjoy teaching and learning with my students ways we can be more like Jesus in everything we do. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you on August 25, 2016! We are going to have a terrific year!

Part Time Preschool for Week of 5/14 to 5/18/2018

Posted on May 20, 2018

Hi Preschool Families:

     Well, we are getting closer and closer to our goal.  This week we finished up the last letter of the alphabet.  Hooray for Z and zoo animals!

     This week for art we made zebras, itsy bitsy spiders and "Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom" coconut trees with letters and numbers.

     We practiced making Z's and reading stories about zoo animals.  We are continuing to read nursery rhyme stories and practicing for our upcoming May 3lst, show.  

     For Religion we talked about how David wrote prayers and he became a King.

     We went for a visit to Kindergarten with a list of questions for the students and teachers.  We had story time outside on Wednesday and ate our snack outside on Thursday.  We were so lucky to have great weather.  

     This week for our preschool calendar of events we are wearing pjs on Monday, you can also bring in your favorite book.  On Tuesday we are wearing as many colors as we can for Rainbow Day.  On Wednesday, wear your favorite sun glasses. On Thursday we will send thank you letters to everyone who has helped us this year.  On Friday, we are having ice cream! 

     REMINDERS:  Our show is on 5/31/2018.  Morning show is at 9:30 a.m., and Afternoon show is at 1:00 p.m.  The show lasts about 20 minutes and then we will have cookies and juice.  This will be the last day of school for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday kids. Friday 6/1 will be the last day for all other preschoolers.  What a great year this has been!
