A Message from our Teachers

Dear Kindergarten Family,

Our teachers would appreciate if you could complete the following list.  Thank you!

1. The parent questionnaire. This will help us get to know the students and prepare contact lists, birthday lists, allergy lists, etc. Please share the following link with parents:
2. We kindly ask for an individual photo of each student to help us recognize students on the first day! We would love to have these as soon as possible so we can start learning everyone’s names and faces! Please email photos to both teachers and include the child’s name and homeroom in the subject of the email.
3. Just a heads up, in the first week of school we will ask every student to provide a copy of a family photo that students will present to the class as a get to know you activity. We will then hang the photos in our prayer corner to keep our families with us all year long! Please do not send a framed photo; we won’t be able to hang all of them. A paper copy will be perfect! 🙂
