WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN!!

I am Ms. Tracy Froien. This will be my 12th year teaching at Boyd in Kindergarten. I have my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood from Peru State College. And my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College. I love teaching Kindergarten and witnessing all the growth that takes place during the school year.

On the first day of school please send with your child  a small towel or small blanket for rest time. **NO Mats** they take up to much room in the lockers they will be sent back home. Send  something that can stay in their locker it will be sent home monthly to be washed.

**Please label everything with your child's first and last name**

** Please check your childs back pack daily**

Send a back pack that is small enough to fit in a locker but big enough to hold library books and home to school folders.

If you would like to donate supplies for the classroom community we are in need of

Crayola crayons (24 pack)    Glue Bottles       Highlighters     Markers     Kleenex      Hand Sanitizer  Clorox Wipes

Kindergarten also has snack if you would like to donate    Graham Crackers   Animal Crackers   Nilla Wafers    Fruit Snacks   Pretzels  

Please contact me anytime during the school year at tracy.froien@ops.org

I am looking forward to starting the 2016-2017 school year!!
