What's Coming Up Next?

Can you believe next week is the last week of kindergarten? I am enjoying these last days spent with your child. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to play a role in your child's young life! I have really enjoyed my first year of teaching with your child, and I wish all of your children the best of luck in their future endeavors.


Next week will be very busy as it is our last week together! During the week, we will review topics we have learned throughout the year in kindergarten. There is no school for students on Monday for Memorial Day. On Tuesday, students have Kindergarten Graduation at 7:00pm. On Wednesday, students bring their favorite board games to play at school. On Thursday, students wear their favorite vacation attire (no bathing suits), and we will have our end of the year party and say our goodbyes!
