    Donations will be accepted from Monday, January 28th through Friday, February 1st. 


    Thank you for your support.

    • Parents...


      Please continue to send your children in with their reading bags on Fridays. 

      Keep the 'Reading Finger' inside the reading bag as well, this helps us when we point to the words we are reading.  



       Thank you always!


       Please keep sending in written notes if there is any change in your child's dismissal schedule.

      Continue to send me written notes & lunch money if you'd like your child to purchase school lunch or snack









    Dear Families,                                                                                                                                                                                                                        September 2018


    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

    ·      Crayons

    ·      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.
