Hi! My name is Mrs. Powers and I have a terrific job!
I get to teach a pack of awesome kindergartners!
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.
~*~*~ 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!
