Happy New Year!
We are ready to get back into the swing of things. While much of the first half of the year was spent establishing routines and learning how to be Kindergarteners, the focus of the second half of the year will be on putting these things into practice. My expectations for the children have increased and I am stressing the importance of always doing their best work. We are also stressing problem solving and independence. You can help foster these things in your children by giving them responsibilites at home. While it is often easier to do things for them, it will be better all the way around if they are learning to do things for themselves and others.
