Here is the highly anticipated Allied Arts schedule for the 2016-2017 SAFARI adventure. Please note the time of Allied Arts is from 1:10-1:55 daily on a six day rotation. I will always send a monthly calendar that will clarify which allied art we have each day. I hope you have a chance to meet our wonderful specialists at Open House on Monday, September 26th at 6:00.

Welcome to Our KinderSafari!
Dear Newest Adventurer,
Welcome to our Kindergarten Safari! This year you will take chances, explore new things, and learn a lot along the way. I wanted to take the opportunity to welcome you and introduce myself. In this packet you will find a list of tools you will need on our Kindergarten Safari.
This is my third year at Pond Cove Elementary School. I have been teaching kindergarten for five years and before that I taught special education. I am so excited to learn all about you and grow together as a team.
While getting prepared for this awesome safari adventure, I have really enjoyed this summer. Mr. (Kevin) Marsden and I have been very busy putting in a new patio in our backyard! We also visited our very good friend in Chicago! It has been a busy summer but I have found time for reading new books, spending time with family, running, and laying on the beach.
During kindergarten we will learn a lot but what is most important is that you will grow into a brave and courageous adventurer! I can not wait to meet you at our meeting in September. In the meantime, I would love for you to write me a letter all about your summer. Also, please visit our KinderSafari blog at the link below. Enjoy the rest of the summer and don’t forget to keep reading with someone you love at home!
I am so excited to embark on the 2016-2017 school year as we embrace adventure and take risks to grow and learn. Here are a couple of important dates and reminders for the upcoming weeks. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns!
- Tuesday 9/6, Wednesday 9/7: Kindergarten 1-1 Meetings. If you have not received your student's appointment time please let me know and I will schedule your time accordingly.
- Thursday 9/8: Bus Ride Day! You will soon receive correspondence from the bus garage regarding bus number, pick up, and information about the bus ride day. The bus ride day is scheduled from 9:45-10:30 at Pond Cove. Your pickup/drop off times will fall outside that window. If you plan to drive, ride bikes, etc. please make sure you arrive at Pond Cove no later than 9:45. The schedule of that day is TBD. Please note younger siblings are not permitted to ride the bus.
- Friday 9/9: First Day of Kindergarten!
- Monday, 9/26: Kindergarten Open House! Our open house for Kindergarten is from 6-7pm. This is a casual opportunity to see the space a little more "lived in" and to see some of the work we have already accomplished!
