Kindergarten with Mrs. Kalny

Please be sure your child uses the bathroom before they arrive at school. We have many who ask as soon as they arrive. Also, Scholastic orders must be sent in through the red HW folder. It is very confusing on who orders on line & who orders through the red folder. It is much easier to order at the same time through the red folder. Please do not place orders online. Thanks for your understanding & your cooperation.  

 Please get books covered with contact paper ASAP & return back to school. We will be working in them during class time. Thank you!! :)
