In kindergarten we learn letters, sounds, words, and reading! We learn numbers, shapes, addition, and subtraction in math. But even more important are the skills we learn when we share blocks, compliment a classmate on their picture, and learn how to communicate with others. Building with blocks, creating art, and enjoying talking with our friends is what kindergarten learning is REALLY about! 💙💛💙💛💙💛💙💛💙💛💙

This week our staff spotlight is on Ms. Emma Ward, a parapro at South and our Latch Key Director. In the summer, she enjoys dirt track races and going to her grandma's house on the lake. Ms. Ward's favorite season is the Fall because she loves the changing colors of the leaves. In her free time, Ms. Ward enjoys long walks and hanging out with friends and family.

These kindergarten kiddos are AMAZING! In the beginning of the school year they could not log on to an iPad by themselves or pass levels in Boggle. Now they have mastered using an iPad and using Boggle Math! Mrs. Miranda Beach has done a wonderful job developing skills with each student. Great Job Junior Jackets! 💙💛💙💛💙💛💙💛💙💛
