Getting Ready

The school is almost ready! Roofers have been putting the finishing touches on a summer long roof replacement project. Today, this giant crane was transporting some final supplies.
We can't wait to see everyone at the kindergarten playground date on Monday, August 25th from 4:30-5:30. We will meet on the UPPER playground as the equipment on the lower playground is not quite ready yet!!

Welcome to Kindergarten

Yay! You found our class blog!
I will use this blog to update families of class happenings throughout the year. I have left some postings from the last k-1 looping class, to give you an opportunity to explore the types of adventures you can look forward to.
I hope you have received this letter already:
Welcome to kindergarten! My name is Mrs. Koch, and I will be your kindergarten teacher. I live in Montpelier with my husband and two daughters. I also have a dog named Shadow.  Can you guess what color he is?
I have been busy getting ready for school to start, and I just can’t wait to meet you .We will have a kindergarten play date on Monday, August 25th from 4:30-5:30 on the playground. We are  also having an Open House for you and your family in our classroom on August 28th, from 3:30-4:30.
Have you ever looked closely at a caterpillar, chrysalis or butterfly? We will start the year studying the life cycle of the butterfly and  there are so many types here in Montpelier. Keep an eye open for caterpillars of these species and bring one to school if you find it!
