Welcome to KA!

We are off to a great start in Kindergarten! The kids are working hard each day as we explore Religion, math, science, social studies, writing, and so much more. We are learning a lot but having a great time. I am enjoying getting to know each of their personalities more each day. We have a busy week ahead in preparation for Thanksgiving break. Please remember homework needs to be returned by Friday and complete 15 full minutes of IXL in order to receive full credit!

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am best reached through email:
