Welcome to Kindergarten! 

 Dear Families,

     Welcome to Kindergarten!  It is my honor and privilege to be a part of your child's education.  It is a task I take very seriously.  As a mom, I know how important it is to feel that your child is in a nurturing and challenging learning environment.  With patient encouragement, I strive every day to love and teach my students according to their individual strengths as well as celebrate every success in their social and academic development along the way.  I look forward to watching your child learn and grow!  It is going to be a great year!

Whose Child Is This? 

"Whose child is this?" I asked one day,

Seeing a little one out at play.

"Mine," said the parent with a tender smile; "

Mine to keep a little while;

To bathe his hands and comb his hair;

To tell him what he is to wear;

To prepare for him his daily food;

To train him that he may always be good."

"Whose child is this," I asked again,

As the door opened and someone came in.

"Mine," said the teacher with the same tender smile.

"Mine to keep a little while;

To teach him how to be gentle and kind;

To train him and direct his dear little mind;

To help him live by every rule,

And get the best he can from school."

"Whose Child is this," I asked once more,

Just then the little one entered the door.

"Ours," said the parent and the teacher as they smiled,

And each took a hand of the dear child.

"Ours to love and train together;

Ours, this blessed task forever."-Author Unknown
