Dear Parents,

Welcome back!  I am so excited to work with the kids this year.  This will be my 20th year in the district.  Most of the years have been in Kindergarten, but I have taught everything from 4K through 3rd grade.  Kindergarten is my favorite because love watching all of the progress kids make during this important year.

The first few weeks of school we will be learning about each other and about school.  On days we have Phy Ed, please make sure your child has tennis shoes.  These days will be on the calendar.  Please regularly visit my website I plan to use this for communication, also.  I have a link for book orders.  My code is GZLL3.  It's super easy to order online.  And the books are so affordable!  Also keep an eye on my Important Dates tab for things happening in the school and classroom.

Please read through the Parent Handbook for the District as it may answer questions you may have.  Also, please pay attention to the dress code.  It applies to everyone in the building.  Please also send back any forms that need to be filled out.  We appreciate your promptness with these.

Your child will come home with a name tag on the first day.  Please pin it on his/her backpack after the first day so there is no questions about what room your child is in or which bus he/she rides.  It works great to put the safety pin in one of the zippers on the backpack.

Students should not arrive before 7:40.  There will not be supervision as that is our time to run copies, get materials, attend meetings, etc.  If you are picking your child up at the end of the day, please pick him/her up out in the back pick up/drop off location at 3:22. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to let me know.  I’m looking forward to a fabulous year!
