3 K/ Early Childhood

  • Pre-K
Hello and Welcome to 3K and 4K! I am excited to be at the Notre Dame Elementary School with all of you! I graduated from UWGB in Elementary Education with an English minor and I am also licensed cross category for Special Education. In my spare time, you will find me working on my Master's degree, reading, or doing crafts (stained glass/ making jewelry). I am a proud mom of three beautiful daughters, who are taking either graduate classes or college courses this year. I thank you all for making me feel so welcome here at your school and allowing me the opportunity to teach and foster such sweet young minds.
Jennifer Kopp

MRS. KOPP’S Class!!!

In both the 3K and 4K Preschool/ Early Childhood classes, much of our day is focused on play based learning with role modeling and a creating a positive “first school” experience .   We also teach with both small and large motor activities, while incorporating language development, building stamina, and listening skills.  Even simple things such as sand play and calendar time touch on many key elements of age appropriate preschool learning.

In 3K class, the students will be learning age appropriate activities such as basic colors and shapes.  We also do projects and crafts that go with our theme which is posted near our door.  Our school wide theme this coming school year is “FROG/ Fully Rely on God”. Students will also be working on large and small motor activities and how to be a good friend.
