PREPARING STUDENTS FOR FIRST GRADE

June 25, 2020

Dear Kindergarten Parents,


As our 2019-2020 school year comes to an end, we reflect on the challenges that we have faced, as a family, a school and a community. With these challenges comes tremendous growth. We have truly fostered a partnership in our children’s education as they have made great strides. 


Many parents have asked us “what can I, as a parent, do to make sure my child continues to thrive academically over the summer?” Aside from saying Tefilah each morning, we have compiled resources in an effort to help your child maintain all that they have learned throughout the school year. Utilizing the links below will allow your child to take on the next school year with confidence!

  • Click here for important information on inventive spelling.
