Welcome to Kindergarten
Briarwood Elementary School
Please check the Briarwood Calendar for a current list of school events.
Reading is a healthy habit that should be a part of every kindergarten child's daily routine. As a result, your child's "homework" this year is to establish daily reading routines. Whether it is a parent, sibling, or other family member who reads to your child, or them reading on their own the routine of daily reading is so important!
About Mrs. VanderWel
I am looking forward to another year at Briarwood. You may know me as a 1st grade teacher, but this year I am teaching Kindergarten! This will be my 12th year of teaching and I truly believe that I have the best job ever.
When I am not at school I can most often be found spending time with my husband and our Golden Retriever, Pippa. I like to run and enjoy hiking. I also love to watch baseball, Go Mariners!!
