The 2019-2020 school year is going to be fantastic.  I am so excited that your child is in my kindergarten class this year at the wonderful Bell Fork Elementary School.  Your child will have a green folder in their back pack that will go home every night.  I need you to check this folder everynight in case there is any important information that you need to be made aware of regarding school.  Your child will experience a great amount of growth during this important kindergarten year.  It is imperative that we all work together so your child knows we all care about his/her well being.

Your child will be learning how to read this year which is truly exciting to not only your child, but also exciting for me as well. Your child will be interacting with our new math IReady program which allows your child to work interactively on the computer.  We will be using Sanford Harmony in our classroom which is a kindergarten based programing promoting positive interactions at school.  Ask your child about "Z".

Your child will have specials during the week which include library, art, music, computer/spanish, and physical education.  The class will have recess everyday (weathering permitting).  As a class we walk and talk on the track together for two laps, then as a class we go over to the playground to interact with other kindergarteners in a playful manner.

I encourage you to stay in touch with me using the communication log in the green folder.  Any dismissal changes need to be put in writing with specific information regarding the change.

Thank you for working with your child everynight!!!
