Step Into Kindergarten

Kindergarten is an essential part of your child's long term education.  In kindergarten, students will learn social skills and will develop a solid foundation for learning.  Students will learn their letters and sounds, how to read sight words, how to count and begin to add numbers, and the first concepts that all others are built on.  Kindergarten students will also learn the importance of being part a community of learners where we share, communicate our needs, and work with others.
