A Message to Our Parents

Thank you for the opportunity to share with you, the syllabus for kindergarten at Sacred Heart School.  As you examine the academic outcomes for our students, it should be stated that it is the goal of our program to gracefully allow the students to grow in confidence and maturity, while demonstrating growth academically as well.  Students entering kindergarten come from vastly different instructional backgrounds depending on the programs or experiences to which they have been exposed.  The students will gain a respect for the other students of Sacred Heart School, for the rules that make our school both a safe and educational environment, and the adults that work within our school community.

The kindergarten curriculum overlaps several concepts throughout different subject matters.  Students are exposed to the fundamental academic goals in a variety of settings, in order to ensure understanding and mastery of key concepts.  Storytelling and role-playing are wonderful ways to expose the students to concepts in a fun and age appropriate manner.  Students also learn in whole group and small group setting, which are often centered around an art project, puzzle, or game.  As the year progresses students will be expected to sit for longer periods of time to attend to more formal written work throughout the day.

As a kindergarten teacher I realize that this year may be the first time your child has been away from you for a full day.  I will endeavor to make this transition as easy for you and your child as I can.  Please accept my invitation to write notes or e-mail me with any questions or concerns regarding classroom or school policy or your child’s individual progress as they arise throughout the year.  I will always respond in writing, by e-mail, or by phone as the situation sees fit.  It is my plan to make the year a fun and productive experience for all. 

Welcome to Kindergarten at Sacred Heart School!
