  • Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career! Kindergarten is a time of:

    • New beginnings
    • Making friends
    • Learning lots of new things each and every day
    Kindergarteners develop fundamental work habits, appropriate social behavior, problem solving and decision making skills, and of course academic skills.  I am looking forward to making your child's learning experience a fun and exciting one, and to instill a love of learning that will last throughout their years of schooling. 
    At Home Support 
    Families can help at home by:  
    • Reading to and with your child daily.
    • Practicing sight words daily.
    • Encouraging your child to write and draw.
    • Practicing math daily.
    • Reviewing work that your child brings home.
