• Welcome  welcome

    As summer comes to an end, we are about to begin an exciting time.  Pine Road Elementary School will once again be filled with smiles, laughter, and learning.  It is truly magical to watch a school "come back to life" as the children return.

    It is with great excitement that I welcome each of you to a new school year.  The Kindergarten team has been working hard to plan exciting and engaging learning activities.  We have many events coming up...which you will hear about in the near future.
    As we move through the year, I want you to know that I value your input.  Your child will benefit from a strong home and school connection.  This will help him/her to grow - academically, socially, and emotionally.  It is essential that we keep an open line of communication.  If you ever have questions or concerns, I invite you to reach out to me.  Email is probably the easiest and quickest way to reach me.  I try to check my email regularly, but please understand that my first responsibility is to be present with your child.  I will return your email as soon as possible.  Phone messages are not as reliable or easy to check.  However, if there is an emergency - please call the office.  
    A brief note about my class environment.  I believe strongly that our classroom needs to become a community of learners.  I work very hard to build a room where every child feels valued, safe, and excited to come to school each day.  We will work throughout the year to find commonalities with peers and celebrate our differences.  This work is necessary to build relationships that help students take the steps needed to grow as Kindergarten learners.
    Finally, I am honored to be your child's first teacher at Pine Road Elementary School.  I look forward to meeting each of you at Kindergarten Orientation!
    Here's to a year of learning, laughing, and growing.
