Dear Kindergarten Parents,

I hope your summer has been going well and you and your child are excited about starting the school year!

As many of you know, Kindergarten will be in session Monday through Friday, from 8:00am-3:00pm. There is an after school program available called One Planet from 3:00pm-5:30pm. Jackson Howe is the new director and can be contacted through email if you have any questions. His email is He will also be our new PE teacher!

I am very excited to start this new school year. I have spent a lot of the summer planning and prepping the Kindergarten room!! I have also loved spending time with my family camping, swimming, going to the beach and just relaxing, however, I am ready for the school year to start!! This year I will be doing most of my communication face-to-face as well as through email. If your email address has changed or you would like to add another email to my list, you will have the opportunity to do so on Open House night. I will not be doing a weekly paper newsletter. I will do this through email. I will continue my classroom Blog as well, which was privately shared with you via email. Check in weekly! You can set it up so that you get an email every time I post a picture.

If you have any questions at anytime throughout the year please don’t hesitate to call the school, email me at or set up a time to meet. I will try to check my email at least once a day. If your child’s after school plans change, please call the school as I might not check my email before the end of the day. I really want everyone to feel comfortable in keeping our communication open. We all are working together to bring out the best in your child!
