A note from Miss Jones...

We have been having an amazing first couple of weeks of school! Everyone is working and playing very hard! I feel so lucky to have this new group of Kindergartners with me this year! When at home, please work with your student on practicing writing their names and tying their shoes! It's going to be an exciting year!
