Our Core Essential Value for the month of March is “Forgiveness.”
“Deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn’t have to pay.”
HOW YOU CAN SHOW FORGIVENESS:
- Think about a time that you were forgiven.
- Remember to be slow to anger and choose forgiveness.
- Find examples of forgiveness in books, TV shows, or movies you watch with your family.
The animal for FORGIVENESS is the GECKO – The color is MINT

Kinder Teachers are wild about Reading! 📚
PTA meetings will be held during the school year. All parents are encouraged to become members of the PTA on our campus and attend meetings and events. The PTA typically provides monetary support such as programs, the winter and spring parties, technology, staff development for teachers, field trips, etc., as well as voluntary time and hours by providing people to assist with multiple school activities.
Please contact our PTA President, Mrs. Christi Henneke at firstname.lastname@example.org for information regarding any questions or to volunteer for the PTA.
Important Campus Reminders
Early Parent Pick-Up
If you are picking up a student early, please arrive prior to 3:00 p.m. We will not release your child(ren) after 3:00 p.m. due to dismissal procedures.
Please do Not Bring Forgotten Items
Make sure your child(ren) are ready for school each day. We need your help to ensure they have everything they need during the school day. Send them to school with their lunch, snack, homework, glasses, jackets, and water bottles.
