Teacher Info


Teacher Karyn Hermes - Kindergarten  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to Kindergarten!! I am so excited to start the new year with all of you. Please feel free to email me or call me if you have any questions or concerns.

Please check my web page WEEKLY! I will attach a monthly newsletter to my web page at the beginning of each month. My primary form of communication with you will be on my web page and email. I will update my web page weekly, as well as send important information and reminders of upcoming events through email.

~Take-Home Folders will come home each day. They will contain important notes and your child's school work. Please be sure to check and empty the folder each night. Any notes or information that you need to send to me should also be put in the Take-Home Folder. I personally check each folder every morning.


Our school works on what we call a TIGER schedule . Therefore, our specials do NOT occur every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc... Instead, they will fall on a T, I, G, E, or R day. When we have a day off of school, it will not be a letter day. The letters are for days that we are in school only.


Here is our TIGER schedule for the 2018-2019 school year.

T Art
I
G Library
E Computers
R Music

~We have PE everyday from 12:45-1:15pm. Please be sure your child wears or has gym shoes at school each day.

Lunch 11:15-11:35am
Recess 11:35-11:55am


I CAN statements are simple sentences designed from Common Core Standards. They are written in student-friendly language. I CAN statements break down learning objectives into actions that students can read, understand and perform. In our class, I CAN statements are posted in front of the room and are read daily. This helps students to understand the expectations, become more responsible for their learning and more reflective of their work.

I canís for Quarter 1
