Happy February! 




To our lovely Kinder Family,

You are valued. You are appreciated. You are loved. This month lets expand our love for learning by dedicating extra time to read outside of virtual instruction. Instilling a love of reading early gives a child a head start on expanding their vocabulary and building independence and self-confidence. It helps children learn to make sense not only of the world around them but also people, building social-emotional skills and of course, imagination.

Season's Greetings!

Thanksgiving Message


Hello November!



Let’s continue to embrace this Amazing Autumn as we are thankful for our health, strength and family. We deeply miss seeing scholars, and we are grateful for your flexibility and understanding as we navigate this pandemic together. I look forward to welcoming some of our Kinder Crew into the building at the end of the month(November 30th). For those who are returning don't forget to bring your face mask and back to school supplies. This month will be interesting as we close out the 1st Marking Period along with having many holidays and half days. As always I am just a message away if you have any questions or concerns. Communication is Key. Happy November Kinder Family!
