Kindergarten Team

Welcome to the Kindergarten Team Webpage! We are excited to begin our 2016-17 year with a group of 77 wonderful children! We are looking forward to the excitement of seeing your child grow in the areas of Reading, Writing and Math. Our expectations are always at the highest level for each individual student. We enjoy working with families to ensure your child success as a learner and an individual at Hill School.

BIST Goals for Life:

1. I can be productive and follow directions, even if I have an overwhelming feeling. (anger, sadness, embarrassment)
2. I can be okay even if others are not okay.
3. I can be productive and follow directions even if I don’t want to. (I can let an adult be in charge.)
