Mrs. Welcomer's Kindergarten Class

Hello K2 Families,


I can’t believe that there are only 9 more days in kindergarten! This year has had its challenges but we have made the best of what we were given and fortunately we are able to be together for the last weeks of school! I can tell the children are beginning to have some big feelings about the end of school nearing. Please check in with your child and see how they are doing with their feelings as we enter into the final two weeks. This time can be hard for children and even adults. One day you can feel excited and then the next you can feel a sense of loss or grief. Keep assuring your child that we will continue to enjoy each day together as a class and that all their feelings are valid and that they can share their feelings with someone that cares about them.


I hope that each of you had the opportunity to enjoy your child’s Take Open House! I know the children were thrilled to bring their learning home to share with you!


Next week we will begin our final unit on sharks! This is always a favorite with the children!


Thanks for the continued support each day! I hope that everyone can take time this weekend to enjoy the cooler weather! - Katherine

Welcome to K2  Kindergarten

Mrs. Welcomer's class!

My name is Katherine Welcomer and I am so happy to be your child's teacher. This kindergarten year will be a year of new beginnings, a year filled with large and small accomplishments, a year of trying new things and making new friends. Kindergarten is an important year in your child's education. It sets the foundation for future years. I am honored to be on this very memorable and special journey with you and your child!


I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, telephone calls, weekly newsletters, emails, and parent-teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. The best way to contact me is through my school's email:


I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child! - Katherine

Scholastic Book Clubs Ordering

Dear Parents,

This month's Scholastic Book Club flyers are ready for you to explore with your child. Children read more when they choose their own books, so I encourage you to look at the flyers together.

You can return the order form and payment to me, or give online ordering a try. It saves time, offers more book choices, and earns extra rewards for the classroom!

 Happy reading,

Katherine Welcomer
