Hello to all my wonderful Kindergarten families,

I have posted a few newly updated documents under the “Kindergarten Information” tab at the top of the blog. One is entitled “Welcome to Kindergarten – 2013”.  The page contains documents that will give you information about our kindergarten school year (bus information,information about kindergarten, supply list, wish list, etc). Also check the “Supply List” again as you prepare for the beginning of the year. Feel free to bring your supplies to school at open house!

Please take a few moments and read through these documents to become familiar with our classroom routines and schedules.  I will be happy to answer any questions that you might have at our Kindergarten Open House night on Tuesday, August 27, or you may email me at jiwema@hpseagles.net prior to this date.

Please also take a few minutes to fill out the

Parent/Child Information Survey

All responses will be kept confidential and will help me to prepare myself and our classroom for the first day of school. Thanks so much!!

Parent/Child Survey


Dear Kindergarten Families,

It’s hard to believe that it’s already August!  In just a few weeks we’ll be starting the 2013-2014 school year.  How exciting!  I have been busy preparing for the upcoming year and created a survey with a few questions for you.  Please take a moment to complete this survey.  Your responses will help me as I plan for our year together.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!  Until then, be safe and have fun 🙂
