Mrs. Katie Sobania

I am Ms. Katie, the preschool teacher, I am so thrilled to be here! I grew up in Little Falls and graduated high school in 2008. I have my degree in Early Childhood Education and have a few years work experience as a Paraprofessional at Little Falls Community Middle School. My husband, Corey and I live in Bowlus and half to two wonderful children, Gavin and Cora.  We belong to St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Bowlus. As you'll come to find out, my faith is very important to me. Being able to implement my faith with teaching is like a dream come true, so I am beyond excited! I look forward to meeting many new faces and for a fun school year!!



Our Vision

To cultivate learning through dedication to high academic standards while nurturing each child both personally and spiritually.



To begin the building of each child's faith formation. To develop a positive self-concept towards themselves through guided activities. Developing a positive attitude towards school and socially.  Teaching respect, responsibility, cooperation and participation in group activities.  Learning new skills and improving the skills already possessed.  Fostering a sense of creativity through the use of each child's imagination.
