Welcome to Kindergarten! Our day begins promptly at 8:45 the children are dismissed at 1:00, then at 2:00, the children are expected to get onto Seesaw to do the work assigned.
My philosophy is such that children are always on the move and engaged in activities. The children are constantly learning in different environments. I have the children involved in whole-class activities, small group activities (centers) as well as individual activities. I find by changing the learning atmosphere it keeps the children engaged and excited.
In kindergarten we are very busy and need to refuel our little bodies, so you will need to provide your child with 2 healthy snacks each day. Please include small finger food, napkin, and water.
We have 20 minutes of recess every day outside except for days that the weather conditions are too severe. Please make sure to dress your child appropriately according to the weather. Please also make sure your child comes to school everyday with shoes that have backings.
Your child may come home with occasional homework based on a need for remediation or enrichment. The homework will reinforce and communicate to you what we have been doing in class and what your child may be having difficulty with.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns.
I am very excited about having another fun-filled school year with your child!
All good things,
