    Say two numbers, ask your child which number is bigger, and which is smaller?


    Kindergarten students need a book bag to get papers to and from school.

    We use many tissues during the year, it is helpful if your child brings a box or Kleenex each semester.


    REMEMBER: Kindergarten students need lots of sleep.

    Help your child establish an early bedtime routine so they are well rested and ready to learn.

    Encourage them to eat a good breakfast and dress for the weather so they are comfortable at school.

    Please check your child's book bag daily for classroom information.

    Also, take time to talk to your child about their day.
