PRESCHOOL (PK3) . Mrs. Heinz
Meet Mrs. Heinz
My name is Julia Heinz and I serve Immanuel as PK3 teacher and Director of Admissions and Early Childhood Education. After earning my teaching degree from Valparaiso University and working with a variety of ages, I can say I love teaching preschool the most! I live in Dundee with my husband and three children and am the only one in our household who did not attend Immanuel. Our kids are the fifth generation in my husband’s family to attend ILS! I feel so fortunate to be part of this ministry and to work with our amazing preschoolers and their families.
Immanuel’s preschool utilizes a pre-kindergarten curriculum throughout PK3 and PK4, with a concentration on readiness skills such as fine motor and gross motor skills, print awareness, phonics and math awareness. Daily activities include manipulatives, arts and crafts, circle time, free play, snack and table time.
Current Notes from the Teacher
Happy New Year! In PK, we are back to the routine again and are so glad to work with our students again after the long break! We are working on the letter O and completing the Christmas Story as we learn about the Magi or wisemen who visited Jesus.
PK conferences are next week and we will have NO SCHOOL on Thursday and Friday, 1/17-18. We also have NO SCHOOL on Monday, 1/21 for MLK Day. Enjoy the break!
Keep working on school skills at home. I have a series of Take Home Packs available for checking out, located in our hallway area. Your child may choose one for you to list on the sign out sheet. Simply enjoy it at home and return it the next time we meet! They range from number skills to alphabet activities, to counting and sorting, fine motor and science concepts. All are simple to do and PK students really seem to enjoy them while they are working on building skills! It is a win-win!
PLEASE complete and return your re-enrollment form this month! As current ILS families, you are able to register now during Priority Enrollment. The public is invited to register beginning in February, so we encourage you to register now for the class you want next year, as some sections fill up very quickly. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
