Learn All About Our Class

I chose the OWL theme because it stands for Outstanding Wonderful Learners, which your student will become this year. I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher and look forward to working with you to make this a very special year. Please check my newsletters that come home and this website, to see what we are learning about in class. I also do send out messages via Remind. Sign up at rmd.at/4d9bda or text the message @4d9bda to number 81010. Please contact me via the email link on this page, if you have any questions or concerns.
