Pre-K Supply List

Hello!  My name is Catherine Leggue and I have the honor of teaching the Pre-K class at St. Mary’s School.  

I live in Massena with my husband and two little girls.  

I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in elementary education N-6, both from SUNY Potsdam.

The Pre-K class meets each day Monday through Friday, with the option of a full day or half day.  Students attending the Pre-K class are required to be four years old on or before December 1st.

I strive to create an environment that fosters a love of learning and readies the children for kindergarten.  The school day consists of independent, as well as structured activities that develop social skills, academic skills, and provide for the spiritual needs of the children.Please feel free to e-mail me at or visit our school if you are interested in our Pre-K program.
