Pre-Kindergarten

June 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is hard to believe the end of the school year has arrived. Together we have learned so much and shared so many wonderful experiences. We would like to give special thanks to all of you who have contributed in ways small and large. We are truly grateful to be partners with you in your child’s life. We could not accomplish all we have without you. Thank you!

Please remember you are free to make an appointment to see your child’s teacher on any given Tuesday from 2:35 to 3:15 once school is in session.

Rigorous Instruction

Instruction is customized, inclusive, motivating, and aligned to the Common Core. High standards are set in every classroom. Students are actively engaged in ambitious intellectual activity and developing critical thinking skills.

Units of Study

Math: Building Blocks. Children will review shapes, composing shapes to make pictures and designs. Children will also review different types of addition problems. Children will review the link between numbers and shapes as both being composed of parts.
