Kindergarten News: 9/3

Hi Parents,
This past Tuesday, students participated in a school-wide project to support relief efforts related to the recent flooding in Waverly, Tennessee.  Thank you for your generous donations of new socks and underwear for the flood victims. As always, we appreciate your support.

In class, students were introduced a new “classmate” named Z. This new character is the focus of our Sanford Harmony social-emotional learning curriculum. This program helps our kiddos develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to develop healthy identities and create meaningful relationships with each other.
