Welcome 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 the 2018-2019 school year. Starting Kindergarten is a very important and exciting time in your child’s life and in your lives as well. We welcome you and want you to know that we will do everything we can to make your child’s Kindergarten year as successful as possible. Each year our kindergarten students enter school with a diverse range of experiences eagerly ready to absorb everything Kinder has to offer.
You may be surprised at what an intensive learning program Kindergarten has become! We are especially excited to be implementing a new program called The Leader in Me throughout our learning experience. The program encompasses 7 Habits to allow students to mold themselves into strong individuals who are independent and collaborate with other students/individuals. Our students will be strong leaders by the end of their Kindergarten year! 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, whick begins to open the world of reading and learning about the world around us. The children will learn to read, problem-solve, as well as investigate the world of science and history in a literacy-rich environment through our Gomez and Gomez Dual Language Program to support our bilingual students.
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 and provide a strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical and social development.
