    Grade K Curriculum Guide

    Welcome to Kindergarten

    The Kindergarten curriculum emphasizes literacy and developmentally appropriate skills in math, science, social studies, the fine arts and health.  Kindergarten teachers value the ideas and questions of every child and never lose sight of the child as an individual learner.

    Each day we strive to build on the language and the experiences which young children bring to school and to involve parents in supporting their child's learning life.  Our Kindergarten program provides choice and flexibility to challenge each child to his/her highest potential.  The following information is intended to help you establish and maintain the best possible communication with your child's teacher and with our school.

    Communication with your Child's Teacher

    Parents are urged to contact their child’s teacher at any time during the school year to discuss a concern or a problem brought to their attention. Conferences may be arranged at any time by calling or sending a note to your child’s teacher.

    It is usually impossible for teachers to use the telephone to receive a call during the school day. Parents who have a concern of an immediate nature should leave their telephone number with the office secretary and the teacher will return the call as soon as possible.

    Any forgotten item, such as lunch or snack, can be brought to the school office. We will make sure your child receives the item as soon as possible.

    • Please keep messages involving changes in your child’s plans for the day to a minimum. In particular, when a parent calls and changes the child’s transportation, it causes confusion and upsets the child. Often, the classroom teacher must be notified in person and classroom instruction is interrupted to ensure the message is delivered.

    Parent-Teacher Conferences
    Two parent-teacher conferences are scheduled during the school year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The conference dates are listed on the school district calendar that all residents receive in the mail at the start of each school year. These conferences provide parents with an opportunity to review their child’s progress in all areas of instruction as well as his/her growth in many other areas of school life.

    Appointment letters and specific dates and information regarding parent-teacher conferences will be sent home in advance from your child’s classroom teacher and the principal.

    Please do not bring any children with you when you attend the conference with your child’s teacher.

    Teachers' Newsletters
    Each week, kindergarten and first grade teachers send home newsletters to parents. The
    purpose is to keep parents informed of the week’s curriculum topics so that parents can support their child’s learning at home.
