Welcome Back!

Welcome back for a new year. I am excited to see all of my returning students and get to know the new ones entering. I am looking forward to all of the stories about your summer and seeing how much all of you have grown.

It's going to be an exciting year full of fun and learning. We will kick off the year with the ice-cream social at 4:30 on Monday, August 10th. I will be in my classroom as the gym can get very overwhelming to our little ones. Then on Tuesday, August 11th Early Childhood will have a parent orientation day. I have always had an open house structure so if your child is a morning student then please stop by anytime between 8:05 and 10:35 and if your child is an afternoon student then please stop by between 12:05 and 2:35. This is an opportunity for your child to get into the classroom and get back into the swing of things as well as for you to come in and pass along any updates that I might find helpful. I keep the open house format so that the kids can see each other and socialize and it is a great oppotunitiy for you to meet some of the other parents as well. If these times won't work for your schedule or if you would like to schedule a time to meet privately then just email me and we will work something out.

Welcome to Early Childhood!

If you are new to the Early Childhood classroom or are returning for a new year please take a look at the following files. Please fill out the Student Information Sheet and the My Favorite Things document and send it in with your child on their first day. The preschool packing list will let you know the needed personal items to send in with your child as well as a few items that you could donate to the classroom. When purchasing snacks please keep to the safe snack list provided to ensure the safety of students with allergies. The Daily Activity Sheet will be coming home with your child each day, please use this as a conversation starter with your child as well as a way to send in notes to me. If you have any questions about any of these files please feel free to contact me.
