St. Joseph Immaculate Heart of Mary School hosted the first of four kindergarten Round-Up Days on Jan. 24, as kindergarten teacher Erin Glaab set up centers with a country and western theme for her kindergarten class and prospective students.
The centers included horse lassoing, cattle number round-up, making and drinking fresh-squeezed orange juice and cowboy boot design. Students also had an opportunity to use laptop computers and visit the art room where they created their own abstract masterpieces using exploratory art techniques.
Glaab came St. Joseph Immaculate Heart of Mary School last August. She is an Ursuline alumnus and graduate of John Carroll University with a degree in Early Childhood Education.
“It was exciting to show potential students and parents what my classroom has to offer — a caring, interactive and engaging learning environment where students’ needs are first,” said Glaab.
SJIHM’s Round-Up days give prospective students a chance to experience a morning in a kindergarten classroom. The next Round-Up day is Feb. 14 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. To make a reservation, call 330-799-1944.
