To my precious kinder families,

What a year it has been!  I have been blessed to spend the past 9 months with your child and will cherish our time together forever.  Thank you for your continued involvement and support throughout this year.

I have loved being a part of the Day School family and will miss it next year.  I have been given the opportunity to be a part of a friend's start up business and after much discernment and prayer, have decided to take that leap.  Education is my background and passion so wish me luck as I step out of my comfort zone!

May you enjoy a restful and relaxing summer spent with those you love.  Most importantly, I pray that your child has a fabulous year next year and that they learn and grow and remember God's love.

You all have my phone number and personal email.  Please do not hesitate to contact me should you ever need anything.  I am always available. 


Michelle Rickman

Hello Parents! 

I can not believe that May is here and our last month together is upon us.  

We have grown so very much this year.  We are better writers and readers.  We know how to sound out words and are master inventive spellers.  We can add and subtract and count higher than 100.  We are more than ready for what next year has in store for us and are going to be such successes in our new schools!!  

May is a busy month as we wrap up our year, gear up for summer and start packing for the construction that will take place in our classroom over the summer.  I am so excited for all the newness that is coming to the Day School and know the children will love coming back to visit and admire the beautiful learning spaces.    

Please join us Thursday, May 2 for our last chapel of the year.  On Monday, May 6 we will celebrate our May birthdays in chapel.  On Monday, May 13 we will celebrate June birthdays, and on Monday, May 20, July birthdays.  We have A LOT of summer birthdays in our class so please mark your calendars and notice all the important dates below!

Hello Parents! 

April is here and we are excited to study our themes of Easter and weather!

We will be learning new vocabulary words like evaporation, condensation and precipitation and about the water cycle.  We will also be charting the weather and recording our observations.  You can ask your child to tell you the difference between cirrus, alto and stratus clouds.  

Thank you to all the Dad's that came in for Dad's night!  It was such a fun night in our classroom and at the book fair.  We greatly appreciate all the wonderful books that we have received for our class library.  

It is going to be a fun month full of lots of learning as we begin to wind down our academic year together.  

May you and your family enjoy this beautiful spring weather that God is blessing us with, 

Michelle Rickman
