Welcome to Kindergarten

There is a wonderful sense of home when you walk through the front doors of Samsula Academy. We deeply believe that your child will find our school to be a warm and friendly place. We are very proud to be a part of the Samsula Academy School family. Once you have opened those doors you are a member of our family too.

We wish to welcome you to Kindergarten. Kindergarten is a new and exciting time for you and your child. It’s a time of change… new beginnings, new friends, new challenges and exciting discoveries! We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for allowing us to be a part of your child’s life during this precious time of growth and discovery!

This is our honor to welcome you and your child into Kindergarten and into… our life. We will do our best to make this year in Kindergarten enjoyable but also filled with academics. Our motto is: “The seeds we plant today will blossom into a flower tomorrow.” It will be our pleasure and privilege to watch your child’s personality and learning abilities blossom and unfold day by day.

We run a very effective classroom which is well structured but allows for fun and growth. We hold high expectations for all my students. Furthermore, we strongly believe in differentiated instruction. Research reveals that all students learn differently. Therefore, we plan my lessons to meet the needs of all students. It will be our honor to expand the growing minds of tomorrow and encourage them to become the great leaders of the new generation.

You will find very useful information on this blog. I will update it with events that are happening in our classroom, student work, and other related events. If you have any questions, you may contact us at cgibbs@readingedgeacademy.org or sbowden@readingedgeacademy.org

Orientation and Meet the Teacher

Kindergarten orientation and meet the teacher was a huge success! Mr. Gibbs met every parent that Mrs. Bowden met all excited for one! We are exciting about starting the new school year and seeing all the parental support is truly helpful! Monday is approaching and it will be a very exciting time for both you and your child. It will be a morning filled with tears (from the parents) and fun (in the classroon). We have been getting the school supplies and we would like to send a big "THANK YOU" for bringing them in! Remember we are asking for two white t-shirts, one of which we will be using Tuesday. So, please send in a white t-shirt with your child. This is very important.

Remember to walk your child to class on Monday. Doors will open at 7:40. You may come in, take pictures, and send the first few moments with your child. At 7:45, we are asking that all parents leave our room and head to the cafeteria. The PTA is giving a special breakfast just for the parents. Your child will be very shy and may cry but we want to assure you, once you leave - they will be just fine!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact your kindergarten teacher.
