Parent corner

Welcome to the grand opening, first ever, ribbon cutting, inaugural parent observation corner. I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m really excited though. I’m open to suggestions, themes, questions, comments, and I’ll work on accepting criticism. So, pull up a crate and sit a spell. It’s a wild ride! Thanks for being here!

Kinder Blog

We do a lot in our little cottage. Every day is full of learning experiences, too many to detail in a monthly newsletter but hopefully this will give you a clearer idea of the specifics of our day. Use these posts as a jumping off point for conversations with your children about school, because the "how was your day" question we all ask our kids rarely elicits much of a response beyond "it was fun”…

As well as information about curriculum, I will be including a list of events and other reminders for the upcoming month. Please check the online calendar regularly for a longer view at what is in store school-wide.
