Welcome to the 2017-2018 Kindergarten Year
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Welcome to the beginning of your child’s school career. I am looking forward to being your child’s Kindergarten teacher. I know that some of the children (and parents) are a bit nervous about the first day of Kindergarten. I promise to make the transition fun and easy.
Kindergarten is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is an important year of transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. You will be amazed at your child’s academic growth!
During this year, your child will learn how to read, write, understand basic numeracy skills and so much more. I hope to make this year a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instil a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is capable and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority.
This is my third year teaching in Khalsa School Calgary and my fifth year teaching. I have taught Kindergarten and Grade 1 previously and I understand the academic, developmental, social, and emotional growth of children at this age.
For this school year, I will be at school from 7:45 A.M. to 3:30 P. M. If you need to contact me, please feel free to call me or leave me a voicemail message if I am unavailable to answer your call. In addition, you may email me any questions or concerns.
Please read through this package and read each section carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
