• Welcome to Kindergarten!

    Kindergarten is fun, busy, and academic! In kindergarten we will practice new skills, listen to stories, meet new friends, and take part in many adventures! A team effort and good communication between teacher, students, and parents is essential. We are excited and looking forward to working with you this year. There is so much to learn in our kindergarten year. With your help we can make it a year of growth, discovery, and fun for your child!


    Birthdays: Your child will get a birthday crown and be celebrated on their day, but we cannot bring in birthday treats. 

    Snack stash: Please send bulk snacks for our class. Do not send drinks, peanut/nut products, or sugary treats.

    • Bulk pre-packaged snacks ideas (granola bars, cheese sticks, Go-gurts, goldfish, animal crackers, Cutie oranges, pretzels, fruit snacks, pre-popped packaged popcorn, applesauce pouches, etc.)
