    “Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!” -Lawrence G. Lovasik

    Our goal for Kindergarten is to instill in our students a love of school, and to foster their independence. We strive to work with each child at his or her own pace and help them develop a positive attitude toward learning and a strong self-image. We expect students to be responsible for their belongings, their behavior, and their school-work. We encourage the classes to become communities that care for each other and work together.
