Kindergarten

January 10-14

Hi Kindergarten Families,

Happy New Year!! We hope you all had a blessed Christmas holiday filled with warmth, love, and happiness! May the time spent with family bring you joy that lasts throughout the year.

In December, Kindergarten’s superpower was Generosity and the children learned about how St. Nick gave to others to show his love. Ms. Guevara and I felt the same love this Christmas season and were overwhelmed by your kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your generous Christmas gifts, cards, and wishes. We are so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school community and  can’t wait to see what the new year will bring!
