Welcome to Kindergarten!I hope this will be a wonderful beginning to your school career - for you and your child. I want it to be exciting, joyful, and fun. I am committed to a program that is developmental, to a classroom full of happy children and to busy, full days. I hope you share my enthusiasm for all three.I am very proud of our Riccardi School family and the program your child will share these next ten months. I will work hard to create a bond between home and school because educating your child is a partnership. We are in it together. Let's always keep our communication lines open.I will keep you informed with monthly letters that will go home with your child. At the end of each month the Riccardi Review will go home with important school information. I will also send home a monthly calendar which will mark the letter days and important events for that month. Please keep me informed too with changes in your child's routine, concerns or questions that surface, anything important to your child.Finally, your child becomes my child too this year. I look for the special someone in every child. Be assured I will treat them with respect and love them dearly. I hope to foster the same in them. I know what a critical year this will be and will help each child reach his/her potential. Please start each day with a smile and a hug.I look forward to knowing you all, and working with you and your child.
