Welcome to Ms. Pepper's Kindergarten Class! Ms. Pepper's email: tpepper@yonkerspublicschools.org


    The Kindergarten trip to the Firehouse will be on Friday, May 10, 2024. The police escort wants us to leave here promptly at 9:05. Please keep the time in mind because we cannot wait for anyone. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather and with comfortable walking shoes. This will be an engaging and relevant experience for the Kindergarten students. 

    The easiest and quickest way to reach me is via email: tpepper@yonkerspublicschools.org.

    Homework is assigned from Monday - Thursday. During the weekends, please reread some of the decodable readers that you have in your home from previous homework assignments. Continue to practice counting on the 100 Chart. Please count forward from 1-100 and backward from 100-1. Then choose random numbers and have your child count forward and backward from different numbers. Continue to practice all sight word and word family lists every day.

    Please check CLEVER for additional optional assignments. If your child is absent, they can work on CLEVER in Benchmark and iReady.

    ABSENCES! If your child is absent from school, please send a note or an email explaining your child's absence.

    Please remember to notify me via email in advance if you plan to send treats for your child's birthday. Mini-cupcakes or little bites are the best treats for a school celebration. Please do not send juice or any drinks, because all the children bring water daily.  Do not send candy.  You can drop off the treats at 8:30 AM at the front door. We will pick them up there. We have 26 students. Miss Maria conducts the parties at lunchtime.
