Welcome to Kindergarten

Parents and Students,

Welcome to Ms. Crouch's Kindergarten class! I am excited for the start of the school year in a few weeks. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you at our open house in two weeks on August 10, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. If you are unable to attend, I will schedule alternate times to meet with you. I am looking forward to having each student in my classroom, and I plan to help with the transition into Kindergarten as easily as possible for you and your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please call or stop by to see me at school. I hope this a wonderful year for all of us!
