 Dear Kindergarten Friend,                                                                                                       August 2020


My name is Mrs. Baliko and I am happy to write that I will be your Kindergarten teacher this year. I am so excited

that you are in my class! I am anxious to get to know you and your family.


I can't wait for school to begin and to meet you! I have been busy getting our classroom ready and I have a special seat for you. We have so many wonderful days ahead of us filled with learning and fun! In Kindergarten, we will learn new songs, become reders and writers, and most importantly, become part of a terrific caring community where you will make many new friends!



I look forward to meeting you on Wednesday, August 26 for our Kindergarten ZOOM Meet and Greet. On your first day IN school, come directly to our classroom - number 120 on Acceptance Avenue. This is the first hall on your left as you enter the school by the offices.  I know that you will love our classsroom and love being a Kindergartner at Liberty Corner School!
