Welcome to Ms. Acquista and Ms. Michelle’s Pre-K For All class webpage! We will post weekly updates of what your child is learning. Please check back regularly for reminders and updates of events that will be happening within our classroom.

About Your Childs Teachers

My name is Stefania Acquista. This is my fourth year teaching Pre-K For All at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Academy. I have a Masters in Early Childhood Education (birth-2nd grade) from Queens College. I am also in my postmasters to receive 2 advanced certificates, one for early intervention as well as one for special education. My passion lies in the development and growth of all children. This means they come to school healthy, remain safe, and are supported, engaged, as well as challenged. I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with you and your children!

Contact Me

If you need to contact me IMMEDIATELY, as in during school hours, please feel free to call the school office at 718-843-0914.

My main form of communication is through email. You may email me at anytime and I try to respond as quickly as possible, definitely by the end of the school day. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns you may have about your child’s development.

My email address: sacquista@stelizabethca.org

Remind Text

Also, if you wish to receive texts or alerts, PLEASE sign up for the Remind app, it is free and convenient. I will send out announcements, school closings, and special events through the app. It will help take the burden of remembering off of you! To participate in receiving text message reminders, simply send a text to 81010 with the message @msacqui

Reminders:

  • Please make sure your child is wearing sneakers everyday to school, as we do gross motor outdoors.
  • Each Friday your child will come home with their bed sheet and blanket in their schoolbag. Please wash them and send them back to school on Monday. Also, the size of their mat is the size of a crib mattress; therefore, a fitted crib sheet is the only size sheet that will fit their mat properly. If possible please send in just a fitted crib sheet and a small blanket.
  • Please check, and take out everything from your child’s folder DAILY!

Beginning the Year Study!

Posted on

During the first several weeks of the school year, we will be supporting children as they say good-bye to their families, become familiar with the classroom and school routines, and learn to find comfort in being a member of the classroom community while maintain a secure connection to home. Many children will experience strong emotions- fear, anxiety, extreme excitement, sadness, or frustration. We will focus on building relationships with children and their families to create positive interactions throughout the school year.

 

What names do we need to know at school?

What should we di if we get sad or scared at school?

What are our rules?

When do things happen at school?

Who works at our school?

How do we make and keep friends? How can we be part of a group?
