Kindergarten Welcome Letter and Supply List – Ms. Helen’s Class 2017-18



Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your summer. I have been busy traveling, camping, and spending time with family and friends.  I’m especially enjoying our beautiful Flagstaff weather!      

I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year!  We are beginning the Kindergarten school year with a “Meet and Greet” hour on Wednesday, August 9 in my classroom (room 3) from 10:00-11:00 a.m.   This will give you and your child an opportunity to come together the day before school to meet with me and Ms. Kay (my Aide), and explore their new classroom.  We will have a brief meeting discussing the schedule, routines, and expectations I have for this school year.  It will also give me the opportunity to answer any questions and hopefully minimize first day jitters.  The first day of school is Thursday, August 10.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  I look forward to meeting you, and I especially look forward to working with your child this year!

Please see the list below for supplies.

Ms. Helen
