Welcome to Kindergarten!

Dear Kindergarten Families,

Welcome to Kindergarten! We are so happy to meet the students and begin our year together. Our pods had a wonderful time at orientation! Check out these pictures from Thursday and Friday! Also, please see important notices below, including about allergies.



It is very important to use this email address/send messages to all three teachers. Thank you!


  • First full day for Kindergarten is  9/14/20
  • We go outside twice a day in all weather. Please dress your student for the day’s weather, including sneakers or boots! 
  • Pack a lunch AND a snack that your student can open by themselves. Try practicing at home!
  • Make sure your child has a few extra masks to keep in school.

Shabbat Shalom,

Talia (Math/Science/Handwriting)

A student in your child’s pod (KC) has tree-nut allergies and has a reaction only if the tree-nuts are ingested. As students eat their snack and lunch in the classroom, we ask that these classrooms be tree-nut freeNuts that cannot be brought to your child’s classroom includes:
