Dear KG2TD Parents,
Congratulations on a successful full first week!
What an amazing time it has been this year. We were able to celebrate Lea and Lamar birthdays, celebrate the 10th day of school, and make it to 3:00pm dismissal without any major breakdowns!
Each of your students have shown so much growth and excitement. I look forward to spending these next few weeks (the weeks go by fast) with them.
As a Kindergarten Teacher I get to see the miracle of seeing student mature to be first grade ready. This past week, I assessed each one of your students to see where they are academically. Your kids are full of such a love of learning and! It is truly amazing. Thank you for allowing me to be part of the process.

October 26th 2017- UAS Halloween Parade
October is famous for Pumpkin Patches, Home made apple cider, and OF COURSE! HALLOWEEN! As a child my family never celebrated Halloween. However in 5th grade I snuck a Spice Girls Outfit into my backpack and walked in my schools Halloween’s parade for the first time. I also delivered a paper bag for my brother, he was a sandwich head. Don’t let your child suffer through this! Students can dress up in a costume, their favourite book character, or even as a Minion! The class will walk in the parade in the around 8am. I suggest an extra change of clothes if they choose to change after the parade. We will have a Halloween party. More information to come on this.
