Kindergarten Overview

We want to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to the St. Paul family. Kindergarten is a year full of so many new and wonderful things. Your child will be able to grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. With your help, enthusiasm, interest and love, your child will have a wonderful year.

My name is Deena Tomshack, and this is will be my 14th year teaching at St. Paul. I have been able to have such a wonderful time with my students and parents each year. Mrs. Tina Lesho is my assistant who has been a part of St. Paul’s family for 16 years; she does a wonderful job with the children.

We will be learning so many new things this year including reading, writing, counting, religion and learning to be a good friend. It is important to continue their education at home also. We will count on you to reinforce learning at home and to help enrich their education. It is essential that we have a good communication.

I know that this will be a terrific year and can’t wait to get to know all of you and your children. We believe that a child’s self-esteem is a building block to achieve a wonderful education and we want each child to enjoy learning throughout their lives.
