A Kindergarten Update 
Even with the cold weather and early snow, construction crews at our elementary schools have continued their progress on the additions and improvements to our elementary buildings. As you know, the construction will add additional space for new full-day kindergarten program. 

All additions will be ready for the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. It has been exciting to watch the new structures rise up and begin to take shape after several years of planning. Even from the outside, the new rooms and spaces are beginning to take shape. 

The District and school websites have pages dedicated to the construction. You can click here for detailed updates on the construction projects. 

This year is the first for our full-day kindergarten program. Students are thriving in the play-based, discovery-centered kindergarten classrooms and are actively questioning and seeking answers through investigation. 

Each classroom is an interactive place for our students to learn. The curiosity corner, math area, and construction area are used by students to spur questions; count, add, and subtract using various objects and techniques; and to compare the height and length of their creations, for example.

As always, our students are very excited for story time. After their teacher reads to them, they are guided in a discussion about their favorite characters, or how the story made them feel. They are also encouraged to become authors and write stories about themselves and their learning.

Once completed, our buildings will have enough space to accommodate the full day kindergarten program without putting a strain on the space necessary for other classes and resources. The new facilities will help the District continue to offer Learning for All.
