Mrs. Rachel Barys - Kindergarten Kindergarten is the foundation of your child’s learning experience. The curriculum is designed to promote growth in all areas of development. Academics focus on reading, writing, phonics, mathematics, and religion. Differentiated instruction and learning centers are planned to meet the needs and learning styles of each individual child. My goal for this year is to instill in every one of my students a love of learning which he/she will carry throughout life. I believe that each child has a unique potential that provides a meaningful experience that allows every student to believe and challenge himself/herself in every way possible. Throughout the school year, kindergarten will learn about God’s love, develop independence, treat others kindly and with respect, and discover that learning is fun. I look forward to working with your family this school year. I can’t wait to get to know your child and watch them grow as learners. To find out more about Kindergarten, please click here.
