Welcome Fall!!!!!!

Hello Hello! Now that fall is approaching us, be sure that your kiddo has a jacket to keep with them for when we go outside!

In the Classroom!

With zoophonics starting, we will be focusing on one letter a week. The entire curriculum will be based off that one letter. We will be building our vocabulary, social/emotional skills, working on counting and grouping, and working on expanding our imagination. Each week we will also be focusing on one color so on Wednesdays we encourage your child to wear the color of the week (and you as parents will be notified of the color so you can help them participate). Our goal this school year is to help your child learn and become comfortable and confident in the classroom.


  • Remind Me App: It's a free app that we're using to for simple reminders like show and share, friend of the week, physical due dates, etc. Our class code is 26kh9g

The Parent's Spotlight

Thank you!!!

  • Thank you for your patience with our room/kiddo/teacher changes that came with the new school year. It's going to be an awesome year!

  • Thank you for always being willing to help out with any donations we may ask for! We appreciate your support.
  • Remember there is a suggestion box in the lobby, and we love to hear about ideas to enhance the learning environment for your children.

  • · Thank you for turning in your physicals on time. It's very much appreciated!

Would you like to donate?

We could use:

  • Is there ever a time when you say to yourself, " I wonder if The Tot Spot would want this"? We could use it in so many ways. You may have babies, but the whole school is yours. Everything can turn into a sensory activity or learning experience. So, before you throw out your junk, ask your teacher if it could be used

The Teacher's Spotlight

What is your favorite quote?


  • Ms. Kit: There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest
  • Ms. Kay:Live each day as it is your last day, but believe there is another to come
  • Ms. Katie: All you need is love
  • Ms. Maggie: Let me win but if I cannot win let me be brave in the attempt
  • Ms. Kasche: What comes easy won't last long and what last's long won't come easy
  • Ms. Ayasha: Make it rare and the masses will pay- Nipsey Hussle
  • Ms. Kelsey: If I have faith that I can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing - 1Cor 13:2
  • Ms. Caylin: A smart person learns form their mistakes.. a smarter person learns from others. This was a quote i learned from my music teacher.
  • Ms. Le Andra: Live Laugh Love
  • Ms. Alisha: I feel like this should be all deep. It's not. When I was visiting my new Kindergarten classroom I became upset that I didn't have a seat with my name on it/was in the wrong class ( It was simply misspelled Aliha). Ms. McDonald just said, "don't sweat the small stuff and everything is small stuff!"
  • Mr. Mike: No person have the right to rain on your dreams- MLK
