Meet Mrs. Hadenfeldt

Hello! I am Kristin Hadenfeldt and this will be my 20th year teaching at St. Paul’s School! I grew up in Fond du Lac WI where my dad owned and operated a pizza restaurant (Bob’s Pizza) for over 40 years. My first job was as a pizza cook and pizza deliverer! I went to college at MLC in New Ulm, MN. There I met my husband Loren and we moved to Menomonie soon after we got married. We have two daughters, Kyra (19) and Aleya (18). I most enjoy spending time with my family and camping. I also really enjoy running, this year I ran my first Boston Marathon and have ran 9 marathon in total. Other things I enjoy are cooking, crocheting, hiking, and cuddling my kitties! Currently I am finishing my masters in Academic Administration and hope to graduate by December 2024. I am really looking forward to a new school year and meeting new students and families!

What’s Happening This Week

4K Exercise & Movie Night: Thank you to all the families that attended our Exercise and Movie Night! The kids and families all had a fun time playing Glow Bracelet Hide and Seek, balloon “paddle ball” and “ice skating” on paper plates! We ended the night by watching Toy Story.

Last week the 4K classroom put their last gem in their gem which means they get their pajama popcorn party. The plan so far is to have our party next week, February 8. Look for more information to come home soon!

Jesus Time with Mrs. Hadenfeldt: This week’s Bible lessons are Jesus Calms the Storm and Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man. Jesus’ miracles show us that he is God and has almighty power! Our memory treasures are:

  • Psalm 50:15 Call upon me in the day of trouble.
  • 1 Peter 5:7 God cares for you.

Math: This week we identify the number 10 and count objects up to 10. We learn that the numbers 10-19 belong to the Teen Family. We are writing the number 9, creating patterns, counting items and matching them with the correct number.

Happily Ever After: This week we begin Unit 8 and read the story The Tug of War. In this story a clever turtle tricks an elephant and hippo into believing that he is just as strong as them. In this unit we are introduced to the letters Rr, Ss, and Tt. The students will learn the positional words above and below, the color orange, and learn the difference between wide and thin.

Phy-Ed & Music: Last week in music we began using the C Major desk bells and played the song “Campfire Song”. This week we will review the song and play the bells again! In Phy-Ed we will play balloon “paddle ball” and practice throwing a bean bag.
