I wasn't quite sure where to put this but I think this will suit. This week is Catholic Schools week. Today was the day for teachers and we were being honored as mass. The other teachers and principal asked if I would bring my 3 year old class over to attend mass. My preschoolers don't attend mass during school, so this was a first for us. Well, the day started off very wrong and I was worried how my students were going to behave. I only have 5 girls in this class so I wasn't too worried, yesterday. This morning was a whole different story. The first girl came in fine, but said she would rather stay and play than go to mass. The next girl came to school in tears. Her seatbelt on her carseat had rubbed her and she was upset. The next girl was completely fine, until we had to walk over to the church and started crying. The final two, twin girls, were fighting with each other. None of them have acted like this before, so I knew this wasn't going to go well. We go over to the church and sat in the pew behind the kindergarten and first grade. They sat quietly and I think it's gonna be ok. Then father comes out and two girls start crying. Our priest is very tall and heavy set, and he ended up scaring them. Throughout mass, the twins were fighting, one girl was in lala land and all over the pew, another kept bursting into tears, and the last wouldn't stop talking. Finally, we go up to get blessed and one little girl attaches herself to my leg and begans to cry because father scared her so much. For their first time going to mass as a class, it could have been worse. Other teachers said that they did very well for being so young. One of the teachers said that we should have them come to mass more often and I told her I thought it was a great idea. I doubt the other preschool teacher will even consider taking her students there. Does any other Catholic schools have their preschoolers attend mass? If so, how often?
