Dear Kindergarten Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to Grulla Elementary! The first day of Kindergarten is a great milestone for your child. We are thrilled to be teaching your son/daughter as they begin an exciting new school year. Starting Kindergarten is a very important and exciting time in your child’s life and in your lives as well. On behalf of the kindergarten teachers, we welcome you and want you to know that we will do everything we can to make your child’s Kindergarten start and Kindergarten year, the best possible. Each year our kindergarten students enter school with a diverse range of experiences eagerly ready to absorb everything Kindergarten has to offer. You may be surprised at what an intensive learning program Kindergarten has become. Our goal is for every student to reach his or her developmental educational potential by building a strong academic foundation. A student’s academic success is based on developmental readiness, a nurturing environment, and parental involvement. For children entering Kindergarten at Grulla Elementary, the year will be an exciting action-packed year, which begins to open the world of reading and learning about the world around us. The children will learn to read, to problem-solve, as well as investigate the world of science and history in a literacy-rich environment. We believe that teachers and parents should work together to provide challenging and engaging learning experiences. This partnership will build children's confidence and encourage them to continue to see learning as both enjoyable, useful and provide a strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical and social development.
