Hi parents/guardians-    Welcome to the 3rd week of kindergarten in Ms. Kelly’s superstar class! Last week flew by…… before we knew it was Thursday.  I remind the students daily I only have 155 days with them, so we need to make sure everyday is spent learning, laughing, and getting prepared for 1st grade.

Upcoming week of 09/10/18

Hello everyone! I hope you all are enjoying the great summer like weather this weekend. I know I sure am. I feel extremely lucky to be living back here in Fallon, NV.

Reminders from Kindergarten Practice Day

Hi parents/guardians, Just a few loose ends to remind parents of to make our Kinder lives a little easier each day:     1.) Students need to bring their white binder and water bottle every day please.     2.) Pack your students snack separately in the small front pocket of their backpack. Not inside with their lunch in their lunchbox. We have students put their snack and lunchbox in separate areas.    3.) Students need to have a napkin, paper plate, and utensils inside of their lunchbox...

Every student I interacted with throughout practice day was smiling, making connections...
