Kindergarten – Mrs. Baranoski

Welcome 2018-2019 Kindergartners

Dear Kindergarten Families,

Hello! :smile:  I am thrilled to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher! Our day will be filled with LOTS of reading (we use a program called Sound Reading Framework, which is awesome!), hands-on math activities, science exploring and experiments, character building activities, writing and art projects.  I love to use music so your child will be singing you new songs before you know it!

Most school items will be supplied for your child, but there are a few things he/she will need to bring on the first day:

  • 24 pack Crayola crayons (to be shared amongst the classroom)
  • 2-3 glue sticks (to be shared amongst the classroom)
  • Back pack
  • an extra set of labeled clothing (in case your child has an accident)

The following are items we use frequently throughout the year and would love donations:

  • Clorox/Lysol wipes
  • Kleenex
  • Ziploc baggies – various sizes

Also, since we do have the uniform policy (solid white shirts with collars and blue pants, shorts, skirts or jumpers) we have lots of identical clothing.  PLEASE label your child’s sweaters, coats, lunchboxes and all those other commonly misplaced items.

I understand how exciting and nervous you all may be about your child taking this big step. Please be reassured that we are in this together!  While I know this will be difficult, please do your best to leave your child as quickly as possible when they are dropped off on the first day of school.  It really does help your child transition better.  I promise they are in wonderful, caring hands.  I have an open door policy and you are welcome to stop by anytime!

I look forward to meeting you at the open house on Wednesday, August 29th, 3:00-6:00pm. Have a fantastic rest of summer and I will see you Tuesday, September 4th!

Sincerely,
Your Kindergarten Teacher
