Kindergarten


June 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are making getting closer and closer to the end of the school year! This year, your child has grown as a reader, writer, and mathematician. They will carry on the development of these skills when they enter first grade. We ask that during the summer, you continue to take a few minutes out of each day and review letters, sounds, and snap words. It would be wonderful if you could take a trip to your neighborhood library and choose books that your child would enjoy. The children this year especially enjoyed stories that had memorable characters, such as Pig the Pug, Mother Bruce, Piggie and Elephant and Pete the Cat. Read together with your child each day so that they are ready to jump back into learning come the Fall. Have a fun and safe Summer!

From,

Kindergarten Teachers
