Welcome to Kindergarten!

Please be reminded that if your child arrives to school by car after the tardy bell, they are not allowed to go and get breakfast from the lunchroom.  It is imperative that they eat before arriving.  Our academic day begins at 8:15.  This guarantees minimal interruptions when beginning the school day. Thank you so very much for your help!



Hi! My name is Allison Faircloth. I am a Valdosta transplant as I am originally from the small town of Douglas, Georgia. I moved to Valdosta in June of 2000 to pursue my degree at Valdosta State University in Early Childhood Education.

Throughout my time as an undergraduate I had many teaching and learning opportunities at Dewar Elementary.  I fell in love with the school, faculty, and staff and was awarded the opportunity to work in the Special Education department after graduating. After working with students with disabilities, I moved into my own classroom and taught 4th grade. I taught 4th grade for a year and then moved into 2nd grade.  This is where I had completed the majority of my field experiences and was mentored by Mrs. Patt Crockett. When I returned to 2nd grade, I had the distinct pleasure of teaching across the hall from her and collaborating with her on many occasions to enhance the learning experience of our students. I will forever be grateful for this incredible opportunity.

After being in 2nd grade for many years, I was approached with the opportunity to move to Kindergarten.  At first, I was not sold on the idea but the more I considered it, the more in love I fell with the idea.  Kindergarten is now home and I couldn’t be more happy.  I look forward to a great year with you and your little one!
