Kindergarten News: 9/1

Hi Parents,

We have had a FANTASTIC first few weeks of school! We are so excited for an amazing year together!

In kindergarten, the students have been exploring the five senses through our reading curriculum and other literature. In math, students have been practicing sorting and counting, laying the foundation for number skills. Alongside all of this, we have been teaching them the importance of following rules and how they create a safe and respectful environment. Stay tuned for more updates!


-A peanut free snack and water bottle should be sent each day.

-We love celebrating birthdays! Students can celebrate at school by bringing in individually wrapped, prepackaged treats. Please no cupcakes. Please coordinate with your teacher if your child’s birthday falls on a weekend, break, or day we are not in school.
