2021-2022 Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

We are excited to begin a new year with you!  We believe you as parents/caregivers are your children's first and most important teachers and look forward to working together as your child begins their school journey!

Kindergarten is such a wonderful place to be because we recognize and celebrate that every child is unique and brings their own qualities to our kindergarten community.  We expect our kids to be a diverse community of learners.

Every child may need something different depending on their experiences.  We teach with equity in mind - providing each child with what THEY need as far as instruction, materials, and other resources or support.

The SWES Kindergarten Team

We will work to update this page with the most up to date details for the 2021-2022 school year.  We will be returning to full time, in person learning in the fall. A supply list can be found at the bottom of this page. If you have questions, contact us at 360-221-4600 or email us at dhouck@sw.wednet.edu.
