Welcome to Kindergarten
Mrs. Dunham's Class
I hope you and your child enjoyed the summer and that you are ready to embark on an important milestone in your child's life. Kindergarten is a year of growing socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Your involvement, interest, and enthusiasm will help make this a wonderful year of growth for you and your child.
Take a moment to imagine the kindergarten world: letters, numbers, stories, sharing blocks, puzzles, play, paint and play-dough. Imagination and creativity are everywhere. As you talk with your child about their day and celebrate their best effort on the work they do, remember that Kindergarten is a "child's garden." Many times the process is more important than the product, and learning is accomplished by doing, touching, and experiencing.
At this early stage of learning, it is important to set routines in your child's life. Try to set aside time each day to discuss what your child did in school.
I feel that my greatest contribution so far in education has been serving my students to the best of my ability and being an advocate for their education.
Thank you for entrusting your child to me.
Mrs. Deb Dunham
