One Room School House Opens its Doors to Welcome Full Day Junior Kindergarten

New J.K. registrant Pearl Knopczyk has a snack before re-joining the group for all of the winter carnival activities at St. Joseph.

February 24, 2010 - Located in the small village of Killarney, St. Joseph Catholic School welcomed junior kindergarten registrations by planning a student run Winter Carnival afternoon with help from the Killarney Shebanoning Outdoor  Education Center.  The seven current students and their teachers welcomed the new registrations  and their families by organizing an afternoon of fun – Olympic games in the gym, First Nation drumming and singing with an Elder, peer story telling, healthy snacks, bird feeder construction and an outdoor scavenger hunt. Teacher Irene Dembek explains, “It is important to integrate the new kindergarten children and their families into a welcoming and safe school environment”.  Students, parents and grandparents all celebrated this special school welcome with current staff and students.  Fun and education went hand in hand during the “welcome to kindergarten” afternoon at St. Joseph Catholic School.
