September 8-12

Dear Parents,


I witnessed a beautiful thing in kindergarten this week! Our class is becoming a team! With a little encouragement, examples, and role playing...we have united! Your children are helping each other and becoming good friends. Your children already know what is expected of them and are following their routine! I sat back and enjoyed the moment today. Everyone knew what they should be doing and learning was taking place. We are building more and more stamina everyday! I am so proud of your children!
