Welcome to our Kindergarten homepage!
Hi, parents! This page is your primary resource to stay up to date on kindergarten learning topics, assessments, upcoming events, fun campus happenings, quick links and contact information -- basically everything you need to help your kindergartener soar!
Pizza and Surprises
If your child loves pizza and enjoys getting special awards and surprises, we have an opportunity for them to earn both! All they need to do is learn sight words and read, read, read!!
If you come to the Kindergarten hallway, you will notice a “Data Wall”. Each child is working hard to learn their “Superhero Sight Words”! When they are able to fluently read each set, a superhero goes on top of their skyscraper. At the end of the school year, all students who have each of the five superheroes on their skyscraper, will participate in a pizza party. Make sure your child is practicing these each night! We want everyone to enjoy pizza!!
Also, information went home last week concerning the Raz-Kids reading program. Students who finish their work early will have the opportunity to read in class. In addition, they are invited to read at home. Reading on this program as often as possible will improve their fluency and skills. We hope that all students will take advantage of this program! Every Monday, teachers will look at the weekly reports for their class. The child who read the most for the previous week will win the “Star Reader Award” and receive a special surprise like Smencils or Pop Its!
Here is a preview of what we will be learning next week:
Bible | David and Goliath
Math | Greater than, less than and equal number recognition. Counting to 100 by 1’s, 5’s and 10’s. Counting by 2’s to 30. Coin Recognition.
Phonics | Identifying the sounds of the Bb in given words and recognizing b/d reversals.
Reading/Writing| Winter themed books integrated with Science and writing objectives.
Science/Social Studies | Hibernation and Migration

Remember that school begins at 8:00! Many students are arriving late and this means that they miss important instructional time. If your child arrives as the bell is ringing, it takes them a little while to unpack, order their lunch and visit the restroom. This means that they have missed their makeup work time, centers and about 5-10 minutes of instructional time.
Morning temps are often in the 30’s, which is when we go out for recess. Please remember to send your child to school with a heavy coat on these mornings. We will not let them go out for recess without one on cold mornings!
UNIFORMS - Our Lower School kids are uniquely made and known and we enjoy seeing them shine in their own way each and every school day. However, we have a set uniform standard which can be found HERE that outlines specific details to help us keep in uniform. Some areas to review include jeans, outerwear, and leggings.
