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 continuing getting to know each of their personalities more each day and they all have so much to offer. It will take some time for everyone to readjust to our daily schedule after a long break so please be mindful of homework, bedtimes and routines at home. With so much going on please be sure to note important events and dates on your calendars so you can keep up with it all. 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:
