Welcome to the Kindergarten class(K5)  at Calvary Christian School. It is an honor to share this school year with you and your child. This will be an exciting year as we work together to ensure your child’s success.

Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns that you may have. There are several ways to get in touch.  Come by the class in the morning between 8:15-8:25 or after school from 3:15-3:30, email me at the address below or call the school to leave a message. I will get back to you as soon as my schedule allows.  We can also communicate with short notes to each other using the student folder that will be sent home each night.

About the teacher

My name is April Saulsgiver.  Many call me Mrs. S as well.  This will be my second year teaching Kindergarten at Calvary Christian School. I love working with this age group because it is an exciting time for learning and discovery.  I am thankful to God for this opportunity and am looking forward to serving him by being the best k5 teacher that I can.

Please remember:

Send a change of clothes for your child in a small plastic bag   labeled with your child’s name. This does not have to be a school uniform.    

Send a large shirt or smock for painting.    

Additional Information:

Lunches: Lunch will be served at 11:55.  If you want to purchase lunch for your child, please order tickets from the office in advance.  Please avoid sending cash through your student. If you know your child will be late, please let us know as soon as possible if he or she will be eating lunch so we can get an accurate count. The school orders lunches for the day about 9:30 AM each morning.

Student Folders: Each student will have a folder that will be brought home daily.  Please check the folder for papers, notes or information. You may add any comments that you may have in the folder to communicate with me.
