Children who will attain the age of 5 on or before August 1st may enter kindergarten at Christ the King Catholic School. The kindergarten program is rich in literacy as teachers focus on print awareness, phonological awareness, comprehension, fluency, listening, speaking, alphabet knowledge, sight words, author studies, as well as lots of journal writing and writing prompts. Math instruction includes number sense and operations, geometry, measurement, graphing, patterns, and problem-solving.
Teachers encourage children in appropriate work habits and social behaviors. Kindergarten students attend art, computer lab, library, music, physical education and Spanish instruction weekly. Religion is taught daily and our kindergarteners sit with their 5th grade guardian angels at Mass each Friday. Small class size is a plus. The teacher to student ratio ranges from 1:11-1:15.
Kindergarteners have the unique opportunity to do the following:
Dress up as Saints for All Saints Day and present their saint with a song at a program
Dress like 100 year olds on the 100th Day of School
Lead the mass twice yearly and school rosary once in the Spring semester
Sing in the Christmas Musical
