Welcome to my classroom!

Hi, my name is Kayleen Olson!  I am so happy to be part of the Briggsdale team.  This is my fourth year as a teacher at Briggsdale.  I love the small town feel of this school.  I also love how everyone in the community treats you like family.  The motto that I have for my life is to Take Courage and Encourage.  My goal is to share this motto with my students.  I want them to have courage in all areas of their life, including the classroom.  I also want them to encourage the people that are around them.  I count it as an honor to be a teacher because I get to encourage the future generation every day!


   Dear Students and Parents,

   Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! I am thrilled to have you in my class this year and I am excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your family. I am planning for and anticipating a year filled with challenge, learning and excitement. The following information is intended to supply you and your parents with some information concerning your year in 4th grade.  Please be sure that both you and your parents have read through this letter to help prepare for a great school year! The first day of school is August 21, 2018, and I can’t wait to see you!

   There are a few things on our calendar at the beginning of the year which I would like to make you aware pf.  The first of these is Back to School night is on Wednesday Aug. 15th. We will have a celebration for Grandparents Day on Friday Sept. 7th.  More information for this event will be sent home at a later date. If you have any questions about events happening at the school please let me know.

   I am so excited for this school year, and I hope you are too.  At the bottom of this page I have listed the school supplies list for this year.  If you are unable to get any of these items just let me know. I am more than willing to help out in anyway.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer vacation and fill it full of great memories to share with me.
