Welcome to Kindergarten!



     Welcome to Kindergarten!  We have had a terrific start to our year!  The kindergarteners are busy meeting new friends, learning lots of new routines, and learning how to be a Burton Valley Bobcat!  Wow!  They must be going home so tired!

Thank you parents for coming to Back-to-School Night.  I know you received LOTS of information.  Please reach out to me with any questions, concerns or comments.  If you were unable to attend, I will send home a folder of information for you.  I am always happy to meet with you!

     Thank you for sharing your kindergartener with me this year.  I look forward to a wonderful year with you!


 Our Daily Pledge

"I pledge to myself

on this day

to promise to be kind

in every way.

I have friends 

who are big and small.

I will help them if they fall.

When I love myself 

and others too,

that is the best 

that I can do!"

Scholastic Books Orders

  Each month I will send home an order form for Scholastic books.  You may order books online, or bring in the order form and a check.  This is a wonderful way to build your library at home and support the class library at the same time.  When ordering online please use the code FMTZM
