Welcome to Holy Rosary Kindergarten!
This year lays the foundation for your child’s academic and social success. This year your child will begin their journey with Jesus. Along the way we will meet our Mother, Mary and her husband Joseph. We will learn of the miracles of Jesus and begin the examination of conscience. We will learn of His birth and His passion. We will learn the basics in math, from addition to subtraction and from fractions to measurement. In reading, we will learn our basic sight words and phonics rules to help us become emergent readers. Students will also engage in daily activities with their peers to help develop their social skills. Overall, kindergarten is where the foundation begins.
Hello! My name is Heather O’Brien. This is my seventeenth year teaching here at Holy Rosary. I have been teaching Kindergarten for the last eight years, completing the early years in grades first, third and fourth. I have been a parishioner here for the last seventeen years. Lectoring and the role of Eucharistic Minister are just a few of the ways I participate in the weekly mass. I have been married for 25 years and our children were students here at Holy Rosary. Our daughter graduated from Powers, and then Central Michigan landing her a job as a Special Education Case Manager in National Heritage Academy schools. Our son graduated from Kearsley High School. He is currently a student at Mott Community, is studying Mortuary Science. In our spare time, we enjoy concerts, golf, camping and just spending time together as a family.
