Welcome to the 3K Program at Holy Apostles School
Holy Apostles School  is excited to welcome 3 year old students to our community of learners.
As the first introduction to school, the 3K preschool program will provide a foundation for success in 4K and beyond, and will reinforce the Catholic values found throughout Holy Apostles School.





My name is Mrs. Maggie Lewis and I am happy to introduce myself as the 3K teacher at Holy Apostles School.  This is my second year teaching at Holy Apostles and I am so excited to be leading our class in 3K this year.  I am a recent graduate of the Early Childhood/Middle Childhood Teacher Certificate Program at Mount Mary University.

My family is very special to me.  My husband and I have been married for 8 years and we have 3 children; Jacob, Paul, and Clara.  In my free time I love to cook, knit and read.  We are going to have so much fun together!



My name is Mrs. Natalie Cahlamer and I am excited and privileged to be the teacher's aide in 3K.  I began working in the classroom at the same time as Mrs. Lewis, when the program started.  Working with the children and Mrs. Lewis has been a blessing and every day we all learn something new!

My husband, Chris, and I have been married for 16 years and my daughter, Hannah, is in 5th grade.  I enjoy photography, reading and scrapbooking.  Every day I look forward to discovering where our 3K journey will lead us.


Our goals for each child are to develop a love of learning, a love of Christ, foster independence and develop social and personal development skills (following directions, cooperation, good manners).



We strive to develop fine and gross motor skills, pre-reading and math readiness skills, language development, and social skills.  We do this through: Gluing, cutting and tracing; counting; letter recognition; color recognition; grouping objects; spacial relation; free and group play; self-help.



In 3K, a typical day begins with welcoming our students into the classroom and allowing them free-choice play while everyone arrives.  Once all students have arrived, we begin our carpet time with our morning meeting where we begin in prayer, learn a song or finger play, read a story, and focus on a lesson as a large group, based on a weekly theme. 
Once a week we have show and tell, which is designed to help the children develop speaking and listening skills. Once a week we also visit the library. 
We break for morning snack and then continue our large group instruction with another story, craft, or other activity.  We end our day with free-choice play, where students are encouraged to play and explore their environment in various centers at their own pace, and outside time on the playground.   
We have many other field trips and special programs! Read more here.
