Dear Parents and Students, June 2019
June is here and it’s the end of our Kindergarten school year together. June brings both a bit of happiness and a bit of sadness. I will always remember each and every child in a very special way.
It has been a very successful year for both social and academic growth. I am sure you have seen a tremendous growth in your child since September. It is quite amazing that the children start off the year learning the alphabet, correlating letter sounds along with learning many High Frequency words leave reading hard covered books, writing stories, and much more.
However, without your help and continued cooperation, it would have been impossible. Thanks so much for the hours and hours of listening to your little reader and reviewing the word cards. A good education continues to be reinforced in the home where your child’s education keeps them motivated forward towards new and exciting adventures in learning.
One of the most important things I hope to impress on each and every student is to have pride in themselves and to complete all tasks neatly, carefully and to the best of their ability.
I will always remember the many stories, cuts, scrapes and lost teeth along with the bright eyed looks and big smiles when they have read a story alone, correctly completed a math problem or just drew something they were proud of.
Each and every adorable child and their own special little personality has helped make my year a special one. I give you back your child pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible and mature.
Remember that I shall always be interested in your child’s destiny, wherever he goes, whatever he does, whoever he becomes.
Thank you again for all the generous gift cards, thoughtful gifts and beautiful cards. Most of all the expression of gratitude and appreciation you have shown me throughout the school year.
Dear Families, September 2019
Welcome to H C Johnson School! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. My name is Miss Engel and I am very excited to be working with you and your child throughout the upcoming school year. I will be working extremely hard to establish our classroom community as a happy, comfortable, learning environment where we all do our personal best!
Kindergarten plants the seed for future learning. There is an exciting year waiting, designed to promote and enhance your child’s growth and development. This year will be filled with discovery and joy as your child works and socializes in an environment that is warm, safe and challenging.
I believe that each child brings their own unique talents, experiences, and personality to share in our classroom. I look forward to learning with your child and sharing curriculum with them that is enriching and sparks their interest. They will be provided with instruction in the core-subject areas of English/Language Arts, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
The five specials they will have the benefit of participating in are physical education, music, art, technology and media.
I am so looking forward to working together with you to make this a successful school year.
The following supplies would be helpful, however, not mandatory for the start of kindergarten.
- Plastic pencil box
- Washable markers/twistable colored pencils
- 2 low odor black dry erase markers
- Box of tissues, baby wipes, and hand sanitizer pump bottle to share with the class. (These items are optional)
Together we can make this a great experience! Thank you in advance for your support.
