Note to families

Hello families,

I hope you are staying healthy. We are going to get through this together! Please remember I am here as a resource for you. Feel free to contact me either through email, Parent Square or Seesaw. We are all learning this new way of "doing school".   Kinder Academy is a time for children to explore their emotions, their environment and "how-to-do-school". A child's job is to play, and through play, they will learn.  I will do my best to make sure your child has the opportunity to learn through play. I can't wait until we are all together in Room K!
