A Note From Your Kindergarten Teachers
Kindergarten Connections
September 8th, 2016

Welcome to our first Classroom Connections! Please look for these emails every other Thursday. This is our primary way of keeping in touch.
It has been a wonderful and productive first week of Kindergarten. We have already learned so much! We have spent the week getting to know each other and our surroundings, while creating a safe and friendly classroom culture.

We are looking forward to seeing you tonight for Back to School Night. The program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. in the Kohrs Center Gym. Parking will likely be tight, so arrive early! We've attached our welcome packet to this email, in case you'd like to get a sneak peak.
