Welcome to Mrs. Manijak's

Meet the teacher: Hello and welcome to first grade! I am very excited to be entering my 3rd year at St. Christopher School. I received my B.A. in elementary education from Governor's State University. Prior to teaching at St. Christopher, I was a preschool teacher for six years.                                                                                   

Our Specials Schedule:

Monday:  Art

Tuesday:  Library/PE (every other)

Wednesday:  Mass/Computers/Art (rotates every other)

Thursday:  PE (must have gym uniform and gym shoes)

Friday: Computers/SEL



Students go outside for recess, weather permitting. Please make sure they dress accordingly. On days that it is raining or cold, we will be allowed to use the gym, only if your child has gym shoes. On that note, please allow them to bring an old pair of gym shoes to leave at school in their cubby or they can leave them in their backpacks and bring them back and forth. 


Everyday your child will bring home a green folder with homework and important notes. Please make sure to check their folders and return any papers that require a signature.

Every Friday your child will bring home their blue Friday Folder with classwork, homework, and tests they have done throughout the week. Please keep the work and send the Folder on the following school day. 

We will have snack day every day. Please send your child to school with a healthy snack. 

We will use Class Dojo and email to message one another. You will receive an invitation to sign up during the first week of school so please do so right away. This is a great form of communication and instant feedback on how your child's day is going in school.
