Dear Kindergarten Families, 

In these unprecedented times, our focus needs to be on health and wellness, and that includes staying out of public and minimizing stress as much as possible.  Kindergarten students thrive in an environment of routines and engagement.  Do your best to maintain a daily schedule of waking up and dressing for the day, setting routine mealtimes, and normal bedtime routines.  The BEST thing you can do with your child, as always, is reading, talking and creative play.  Outlined below are some OPTIONAL activities you can do with your child using the Clever portal we gave you access to on Friday, March 13.  As always, feel free to email us with any questions.  Please assure your little one that we MISS him/her very much. 

With much love,

Mrs. Ellsmore, Mrs. Marotta, and Mrs. Stanton
