Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Ms. Fitzpatrick and I am excited to be working with all of you this year.
Kindergarten is a time for children to expand their love of learning, their general knowledge, their ability to get along with each other, and their interest in reaching out to the world. This year, your children will accomplish all of this in a safe, healthy classroom. We will engage in daily literacy and math activities, explore a variety of topics through science and social studies, utilize technology, and above all, learn about our faith and friendship with Jesus.

A few notes/reminders:

- Fluently adding and subtracting within 5 is an important skill in kindergarten. Every day, we will be practicing our addition and subtraction facts. You can also do this at home to support your child’s learning.
- If you need to take a make-up school picture, you may do so on Friday January 28. Please look for the email from Mrs. Forgione with the order form.
Have a wonderful week!
