    Welcome to the Kindergarten page!


    Thank you to those who were able to donate to the food drive.

    Be sure to check your child's folder each night. Keep reading to your child at home as studies have indicated that this is the best way to increase your child's reading skills.



    Important Upcoming Events:

    Trimester ends November 17

    Please be conscious of your child's speech and grammar.  By 5yrs old children

    should no longer be saying "her is" or "helping we".  Using the proper grammar is

    critical to the writing process.  Students need to use correct speech in order to

    write properly.


    Handwriting at this age is important! Please be sure your child is forming

     their letters and numbers correctly.  They should start each letter from the top.

    Many are starting from the bottom.  This can be a hard habit to

    break, but will be important when they begin cursive in second grade.


    If you need to reach me for any reason, please call school after 3:00 at 815-726-5218
