Dear Parents, Families, and Friends,

     Welcome to Kindergarten!!  We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing together.  There are many new and exciting things that will be taking place this school year, and we must work hard to meet our learning targets.   Please remember to check communication folders each day.  Homework will be given daily so that learning can be reinforced and expanded at home.  Please support your student by making sure that they complete and return homework daily.  Our first unit in Math is "Counting with Friends"  We will learn how to break numbers into pairs, count to 100 by 1's, 5's, and 10's, estimate, use a number line, and much more. I have already sent home the list of sight words that your student must master for the year.  Start with five words per week or less.  Once words are mastered, replace them with new words, and continue this until all words are mastered.  Please practice daily to help your student learn his/her sight words.  There is no magic formula for learning them.  You may try flash cards, making two sets and playing concentration, or Go Fish.  If you have any questions, please call the school to make an appointment at (912 -884 - 3326), or you may e-mail me at  I look forward to working with your student this year.  Please look for newsletters and correspondence so that you can keep abreast of important dates and upcoming events in our classroom, and in our school setting. 

Thank you for your support and commitment to your child's success.
