Walk-up door at Kindergarten(final posting)
At the Kindergarten Center, the main entrance (Door H) is the walk-up entrance (west side of the building). Kindergarten students who are using the walk-up door enter the building through Door H. Parents park in the main parking lot and walk to the front door each morning beginning at 8:10 am. Please do not park in the angled spots. It is unsafe because the traffic lines up in a single file to pull through the lot to access Door C. The safety of our students and families is our top priority.
Read Across America Week
Next week is Read Across America week, and we're looking forward to celebrating reading all week long! This year’s theme is 'reading takes you places,', and we will enjoy travel and adventure through books. Recordings of special guest read-aloud will be shared in classrooms throughout the week. Displays will pop up that celebrate our community of readers and highlight exciting books we have in our library collection! Have a shirt or hat from a past trip? We'd love to see it! Students are encouraged to wear their favorite articles of clothing that highlight places they love and trips they have taken in the spirit of travel. Though we may be more limited lately when it comes to travel and adventure opportunities, where can reading take us?
