Did You Know?
We have 30 kindergarten students this year. What a blessing! We have three different kindergarten teachers who cover the three options we offer for part- and full-time kindergarten. It was very interesting to see how those classes formed based on parent needs and wishes. Some prefer part time and some prefer full time. I am thankful we are able to offer more than one possibility.
When I saw the bulletin board in the lower elementary wing with trees and owls and the words "Whooo's ready for kindergarten?", it took me back to my kindergarten days more than 35 years ago -- yikes! I remember the elevated sand box in the room and my teacher, Mrs. Borgman. I don't remember a lot about those days, but I do remember going to a part-time program and having off a couple of days a week. Those were the days when I was able to go out for lunch with just my mom since my two older brothers were in school full time.
We trust that our students are ready for kindergarten when they come to MCS and are confident that they are ready for the next step once they finish kindergarten.
