Welcome to Kindergarten 

The school’s philosophy statement “To Work Together Positively for the Success of the Whole Child” signifies the importance of the home and school working together to provide positive and effective educational experiences for children. Our school motto “Learning for Life” emphasizes for children the importance of schooling and education.

  • Parents that arrive after the first group of students have been brought inside are able to send their children in with the students when the bell rings at 8:50 and 12:50.

Children Learn What They Live

By Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism,
They learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility,
They learn to fight.

If children live with ridicule,
They learn to be shy.

If children live with shame,
They learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement,
They learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance,
They learn to be patient.

If children live with praise,
They learn to appreciate.

If children live with acceptance,
They learn to love... .
