Dear Kinder Jackets,

We miss you all so much!! We have had such a fun learning experience this year, and we don't want it to end. Hopefully, we will be able to come back to school and share our classrooms to finish out the year. We love each and every one of you and can't wait to see you again! Although we are not actually in our classroom setting right now, we know that you all will continue to learn and grow as you work on your materials at home! You are all such smart students, and we know that you can do anything you put your mind to! We hope you enjoyed your spring break, and we can't wait to get those sweet hugs again!


Love, your Kindergarten Teachers

Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. McElhenney, Mrs.Gilmore, Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Vowell, and Mrs. Malone
