    ~*~*~ Getting Started in Kindergarten ~*~*~

    I send my new students a letter in late July or early August which lets them know that I have been assigned to be their teacher.  The letter has information about the beginning of the year - inlcuding information about the Parent Night meeting the evening ~before~ the first day of school.

    Please read to and with your child every day!  Regular reading time from a young age makes a tremendous impact on your child's academic future!
