Hello Kindergarten Families. My name is Melissa Bloomberg. I have been teaching for 24 years and a member of the School 5 staff for 22 years. I have enjoyed teaching 3rd grade, 1st grade, and Pre-K. I am excited to continue my teaching journey as part of the Kindergarten team. I am so excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year with all of you. I know it will be an adjustment back into the classroom and a new experience for many, but this year is going to be amazing and your children are going to thrive and "Reach for the Stars!" I know you and your child may be feeling a little nervous and unsure, but I promise it will be ok. We will work together to make this an exciting, productive and fun learning experience. I will be here to assist you anyway I can. I am looking forward to getting to know your child and working together with all of you!
Communication is Key
I am sure there will be many questions and concerns along the way. Therefore, it is so important we keep in touch and communicate with one another. I will mainly begin communicating through email and notes. I will also be using this webpage as a way to communicate and keep you informed of our curriculum and daily activities. So, please visit often for updates. This year we will be using the Clever portal to access learning apps including Seesaw (learning Activities) , Benchmark Advanced (reading program), and many more fun educational programs. There is more information regarding Clever in the red box to the left.
