Kindergarten Parent Packet

Fundraising while you Shop...

Purchase a reloadable King Soopers card for $5.00 from the front office.  You will receive a card with $5.00 on it.  Take it to the customer service desk or reload it at the register when doing your shopping and Imagine will receive 5% cash back.  Each time you shop, reload your card.  You can use cash, checks or a credit card to reload up to $500.00 at a time.  There is a five minute delay once you reload before the funds are available.  The gift card must be reloaded in a separate transaction prior to your groceries being scanned.  It's that simple!

Mrs. Brigham's Bio
 
Hello Kindergarten Families! I am delighted to have the opportunity to inspire your child to love learning and be an active member of our close-knit classroom.Kindergarten is a magical age of developing independence and friendships, understanding “rules” and making good choices, and developing language and reading skills.  I am passionate about helping children develop a lifelong love and curiosity about reading, writing, and vocabulary.  I especially enjoy wonderfully illustrated children’s books that evoke feelings and take our minds to magical new places.  

I have worked in education since 1998, and have experience in grades K-5, with full-time experience in kindergarten and first grade. My undergraduate degree is in Communications from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and my master's degree is in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.

I have two daughters, Mackenzie, a freshman at Colorado State University (Go Rams!), and Annie, a freshman at Niwot High School (Go Cougars!). My husband and I stay busy with their swimming and soccer events. I enjoy walking in nature, reading, exercising, and spending time with my relatives in Colorado. I look forward to a wonderful year of learning, challenge, and joy with your child.
