Dear Kindergarten Families,
I am fortunate to be a kindergarten teacher at Elk Creek Elementary School and look forward to working with you to support your child as he/she learns and grows in kindergarten. My hope is that your child will return home each day happy and eager to go back to school. I look forward to working as a team and believe that by working together your child's kindergarten year will be a joyful experience for all involved.
Just a little bit about myself… My husband and I moved, from Wisconsin, to the Bailey area 25+ years ago. My teaching degree is from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. I am currently licensed to teach in both Wisconsin and Colorado. I taught Kindergarten full time at Deer Creek Elementary School for five years. I was then fortunate enough to be able to stay at home for five years with my children. I have a son and a daughter. Fifteen plus years ago, as they took flight in their own school careers, I was excited to return to work, this time at Elk Creek. I have found Elk Creek to be a very supportive and friendly school and am thrilled to be back for yet another year.
Please find information about some of the kindergarten procedures under the Kindergarten Parent Resource link. Note the information about weekly folders as I hope that your child’s folder will be a main line of communication between home and school. Please feel free to stop by or contact me at any time with questions, comments, and/or concerns. My email address is Lisa.Beckfield@jeffco.k12.co.us. My voice mail number is (303) 982-2894. Please note that I often do not get a chance to check either my email or my voice mail until evening. If you need to get a message to me immediately, please contact the main office at (303) 982-2900. Thanks for all that you do. I am looking forward to working with you this year!
