• Dear Kindergarten Parents,                      
    Welcome to our exciting Kindergarten at Robert J.C. Rice Elementary.  For those of you who have a child entering the school system, specifically kindergarten for the first time, get ready!  You will be amazed at the amount of learning that takes place.

    We are excited about our strong kindergarten team.  We have a great combination of talented teachers with qualities that complement and bring out the best in each other.  We enjoy working together, sharing ideas, and helping students become readers and learners for life.

    As a team and as individuals, our first priority is your child’s education and well-being.  We will work methodically to see that each child receives the greatest benefits of our educational program.  

    We know from experience that parent involvement is essential to maximize the benefits the child gets from his or her school experience.  Regardless of the experience and expertise of the teacher, research shows that the biggest and most important factor in a student’s school success is the involvement of the PARENT in daily school experiences.  We urge you to become involved by helping your child with homework and projects, joining our PTO, attending school meetings and conferences, volunteering in the classroom, talking with your child about his or her school experiences, and participating in your child’s education daily.

    We look forward to working together as a team - students, teachers, & parents - and having a successful year in Kindergarten.
