Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope you had a wonderful summer. My name is Ms. Kennedy. I am your student’s kindergarten teacher. I am looking forward to working with you to create a rich learning environment for your child!

We Are Readers! - Readers will learn the structures and procedures of Reader's Workshop. Students will begin reading from book bins and learn how to share, retell, and talk about books that they have read independently and with a partner.
Launching the Writing Workshop! - This unit introduces the students to the world of writing. Routines and procedures for Writer's Workshop are introduced and students quickly identify themselves as authors and illustrators. Students will get to write both narrative (stories) and informational writing in this unit.
Topic 1: Numbers 1-5 - We will learn to read, write, identify and represent numbers 1-5
Remember to send in Box Tops!
Our lunch is scheduled for 11:10.
Please drop off any birthday treats at the reception desk prior to 11:00!
Summer birthdays will be celebrated in May/June! A schedule will come home with your child.
Each child has a lunch account in the cafeteria. You can add money to the account online or can send a check to school for it. Your child has an ID#, located on the bus pass. Your child will use the ID # to access the lunch account. I will provide a lunch ID card at school that can be brought into the lunchroom to remind them of the number. Please practice the ID number with your child until he/she has it memorized.
