Dear Kindergarten Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to Round Hill Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Shipp. I am currently entering my twenty-fourth year of teaching kindergarten and my third year of teaching at Round Hill Elementary. I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor’s degree in English and Early Childhood Education. The first day of kindergarten is a great milestone for your child. I am thrilled to be teaching your son/daughter as they begin an exciting new school year. Starting kindergarten is a very important and exciting time in your child’s life and in your lives as well. I welcome you and want you to know that I will do everything I can to make your child’s kindergarten start and kindergarten year, the best possible. Each year our kindergarten students enter school with a diverse range of experiences, eagerly ready to absorb everything kindergarten has to offer. You may be surprised at what an intensive learning program kindergarten has become. My goal is for every student to reach his or her developmental, educational potential by building a strong academic foundation. I look forward to another exciting year teaching kindergarten!
