Welcome to Kindergarten
Freedom Park School
I am looking forward to the upcoming school year! In my classroom, children will be given the opportunity to learn and grow in a caring, structured environment in order for them to be successful in their academic studies. I believe that teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents should work cooperatively to create a school atmosphere that promotes a love of learning.
Your child will have two folders that go home every day. A blue homework folder and a green parent communications folder. If there is anything you need me to see (i.e. notes, transportation changes, money for functions) they should be sent to school in the Parent Communication folder. Please check the homework folder each evening for homework and behavior chart. Check the green folder for any notes from the teacher. In order to complete homework, your child will need these materials at home: paper, pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue.
Breakfast starts at 6:50 am. School starts at 7:25 am. Please drop your child off in the back of the big gym (car rider line). Parents will not be allowed inside of the school.
School ends at 2:15pm and kids are to be picked up by 2:30 pm. If you choose to pick your child up from school, you must remain in your car in the car rider line at the back of the building. School staff will be outside to deliver car riders to vehicles. If your child is a bus rider or going to CYS, teachers will make sure they go the appropriate line during dismissal. Please send a written note if your child will go home a different way.
Please let me know if your child is to be given any medicine during school hours and contact Nurse Butler at the front office. Do not send medicine to school in your child’s book bag.
Our class will have snacks at the end of each day. Students may bring in their own healthy snack. Richmond County requires healthy snacks, such as fruit, goldfish, graham crackers, yogurt, etc. If you have questions about what qualifies as a healthy snack let me know. We accept class-sized snack donations for students who may be unable to bring in a snack. I will be donating snacks as well.
If you need to contact me for an appointment, concerns, or any other reason, please message me on Class Dojo. If I don't respond in time, call the school at 706-796-8428 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back with you as soon as possible. I am very excited to be a part of your child’s journey through Kindergarten! With parents, teachers, and school staff working together, success can be accomplished!
