Grade Levels

Pre K

The Pre-K children have been very busy learning their classroom routine as well as making new friends! The children have been introduced to their new classroom centers and they are learning all about these centers each day they visit them! We are working very hard at our early literacy skills, math skills, learning our colors as well as drawing self-portraits! Please stay tuned to further updates throughout the school year!

Happy Reading! Miss Downes & Mrs. Kaletski

Kindergarten

This year the children will learn to name letters, shapes, numbers, tell stories, read words, write stories, and so much more! Some of our units include discovering more about: My School, My Neighborhood, Families, Natural and Manmade objects, Weather, Plants and Animals, and Non-Standard Measurement just to name a few. We will send home monthly letters to let you know about what we’re doing in Kindergarten. Please contact your child’s teacher if there are any questions. We are glad to help you and look forward to a very exciting, fun-filled and productive school year!
