Dear Students and Parents,
It is with great excitement that I am writing
this letter to you. We have now
completed our first nine week period, and I have seen so many good things
happening here at Harry
Kindergarten Center. There is such a noticeable difference in both
the attitude and behavior of our students.
Now that they are well seasoned in the routine of Kindergarten, I now
see "leaders" walking the hallways of Lockley Kindergarten.
Learning is taking place in our
classrooms. I have been most fortunate
to be a part of the many activities taking place. I have witnessed Johnny Appleseed Day,
carving pumpkins, making applesauce, and a Halloween parade. Also just recently, the children did a
wonderful job honoring our veterans with their beautiful voices.
Combined with these many activities, the
children are busy learning letters, numbers and how to get along with each
other. Learning abounds in all our
classrooms. It is amazing how much they
have learned in this short time. Reading is apparent
everywhere I look. I can hear the
children breaking down words and putting sounds together to make words. They are learning to READ! It can't get better than this.
I thank you, the parents, for all your
help and support, not only with your
child's homework, but in the participation you have shown in our projects so
far this school year. Your support with
P.T.A. is so important to our success here at Lockley.
Additonally, we are working on promoting good
behavior with our "Banking on Good Behavior" project. Awards are given out to the children, and oh
how proud they are to walk down the hall to add their "apple" or
"pumpkin" to our hallway display.
This is what a "leader" is all about. Continue to praise your child for good
We are now heading into such a special
time of year. Let us all be thankful for
the bounty we share, the children. I
give thanks to these children, to you their parents, and to my dedicated staff
here at Lockley Kindergarten Center.
Many blessings to you as the holiday
season approaches. Enjoy the time
with your children and families. We all
have a lot to look forward to in the New Year.
