Kindergarten


Dear Parents and Guardians,

We cannot believe we are already in school a month! Your children have grown more independent and have started their journey as independent readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists. Please feel free to reach out to your child’s teachers with any questions or concerns. We look forward to having a successful school year.

From,

Kindergarten Teachers
