Kindergarten Happenings

October Newsletter

September was a fun and challenging month for all. We got to know each other and our routines. Took us a couple weeks, but we are finally starting to settle and find our groove!

Thank you to all the parents who attended Back to School Night! It was great meeting our new parents and also seeing some old faces. Also, thank you for all the school supplies you provided. It will definitely make the year easier having plenty of materials.

Please refer to this newsletter for upcoming events and information, as well as, a recap of the past month.
