    Me 06Me 06Hi! My name is Mrs. Powers and I have a terrific job! 

    I get to teach a pack of awesome kindergartners!

     Multiracial heart of kids

    My wonderful Walker Wolves love learning up a storm! 

     Our school is full of Kind Kids with lots of new friends and lots of fun learning! 

    Sit back, relax and enjoy some endless rambling.

    Here's a video of some of the 2013-14 Kind Kids saying and signing our Kind Kids Pledge.

    Be Kind Ben's Bells   

    ~*~*~ 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 - including 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!
