 Kindergarten is an important step in your child’s educational experience. It is a new and wonderful time for both you and your child to explore and learn new things in education today. It is important that parents show interest in their child’s school work/activities. Please take the time each day to ask questions about the school day, review work sent home, reinforce classroom expectations and MOST IMPORTANTLY – READ TO YOUR CHILD EACH DAY!! I look forward to a great school year. With your help and support, I know that Kindergarten will be a wonderful experience for your child!  If you ever have any questions please feel free to call me at 697-6600 or email me at
