Inside the Classroom

Home/School Connection

Parent involvement is an essential key to children’s success. This school year we will work closely together to ensure your child has a productive and successful experience. I look forward to an amazing partnership with you and your child this year.

Weekly Homework

In Junior Kindergarten, the students receive weekly library books and a writing journal. Parents should read with their child at least twenty minutes each night. I encourage you to ask questions before, during and after each story to help build listening and comprehension skills. Inside of each journal, there’s a list of questions that can help guide you through the process. After fall break, each student will receive a new journal.
