 Dear Kindergarten Friend,                                                                                                       September   2019


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! We will have fun learning many new things, singing songs, reading stories and making new

friends along the way. I have been busy getting our classroom ready and I have a specal seat just for you.


I am inviting you to meet with me and see your new classroom on Wednesday, September 4th from 1:00 to 2:00 in

room 120 on Acceptance Avenue. The school and PTO have partnered to create a fun and exciting Scavenger Hunt for Kindergarten only so you and your family can become familiar with Liberty Corner School. You will first go to your classroom to meet your teacher, pick up your Scavenger Hunt instructions and off you go! 


The Scavenger Hunt must be completed by 2:00 so all other grades can attend their Open House

from 2:00-3:00. At 2:00 all Kindergarteners and parents are invited to meet and greet on the LCS playground. 


If you are not able to come on Wednesday, I will meet you on the first day of school, Thursday, September 5th.

This wiil be our first day of school, beginning at 8:45 and ending at 3:15.
