    Welcome to Kindergarten! I am looking forward to an exciting new school year and I am so glad you and your child will be a part of it. 


    Kindergarten is fun, busy, and academic. It is an exciting year where your children will learn all about school and friends. Kindergarten is a place to work, practice skills, listen to stories, meet new friends, and take part in many wonderful adventures. Team effort and good communication between teacher, student, and parents is essential. I am looking forward to working with you this year. I have high expectations for your child and will encourage them to do their best every step of the way. With your participation, we can make it a year of growth, discovery, and significance for your child.


    Important: Please let me know your child’s bus number before the first day of school by emailing me at lkasper@hellgate.k12.mt.us. You may call the school or find the bus number on our website. If you have other transportation, please let me know. This information helps the first few days run more smoothly.


    Classroom Supplies:  I have included  a list of supplies in your welcome letter that we will be using throughout the year. It would be greatly appreciated if you could supply your child with the items and send them to school at open house or on the first day of School.
