Thank you for making the start of this year great!


Here is a link to the kindergarten Standards. You may use it as a reference when you are viewing your child's report card:. Remember, these are the standards that your child should master by the end of the year.

* Check out a new content area for my connect site!  Below, on the left hand side, you will see a new box sharing what we are learning for the week. If you are using IXL, there are specific targets you can do at home to match up with our math lessons. Please note that there will be some weeks where there will be repeated connections.

Reminders....

  • Be sure to check your student's folder every day.  Important papers are sent this way.  At the beginning of every month a newsletter is sent home with your child as well as uploaded to the connect site.  Make sure you check it for important classroom news and school work updates.

  • Be sure to label lunchboxes, jackets, hats, and gloves before they come to school.  It is easier to find them if they have a name to identify with:)
