Welcome to our class!

Welcome to Mrs. Childers’ and Mrs. Miller’s Kindergarten!

We are so glad to welcome you and your child to our Kindergarten class.  We are looking forward to being a part of your child’s life and making his/her Kindergarten experience a wonderful, enriching, and caring time.


Please take note of the following tips and important information:


·       School starts at 7:55 , the tardy bell rings at 8:00 , please have your child to school on time every day ( 7:45 is ideal).


·       School dismisses at 2:30 .  Make sure you send a note of any changes in how he/she is going home.  In emergencies you can call the office with a change.


·       Make sure your child gets a good nights sleep (bedtime routines are very important now), and always make sure they eat a good breakfast.


·       Please tie your child’s shoes in a double knot, this saves a lot of time retying shoes.


·       As you see by our schedule we have P.E. once a week however, we play outside everyday.   Please dress your child comfortably, play clothes and sneakers are recommended, everyday.  Sneakers are required on P.E. days.


·       We encourage you to take advantage of our nutritious school lunches.  Lunch and breakfast are $2.50 each.  We do not take lunch money in the classroom, it is paid in the cafeteria, therefore, we highly recommend paying a week or even a month in advance.  
·        You and your child will be responsible for bringing a healthy snack each day.  Please make it a part of your morning routine to pack a snack.
·       Folders:  We will be sending home a daily Take Home Folder.  This folder will contain a behavior chart, any daily work to keep, and other school communications.  It is very important to check their folders daily, and initial the behavior chart.  On the Behavior Chart each child will start the day with a green dot for good behavior, a yellow dot will be added if behavior resulted in a time out, and a red dot is for repeatedly unacceptable behavior possible even In-School-Detention.  We will write comments on the Chart explaining what the behavior was.  Remember to praise your child for a good day and take appropriate action on yellow and red days.  Good behavior is key to a positive learning experience.  In a few weeks we will add a Skills Review Folder.  This folder will contain skills your child should be studying.  Homework is to review this every day with your child to make sure he/she learns these skills.  As skills are mastered WE will place a check by the skill.  We will add sheets as is necessary.  It is very important that this folder stay in their daily Take Home Folder.    Any communication between us should be securely placed in the folder.  Any money must be put in an envelope with child’s name and what the money is for (lunch, snack, field trip etc) and placed in the folder.  Be sure to check the folder every day!

Thanks for all you do for your child, we are looking forward to a great year!
