Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Welcome to El Quadah American School where youngest learners shine brightly, it will be a magical wonder and amazing growth for your little star. Kindergarten is a milestone in your child’s life and we are pleased that you have chosen El Quadah American School for your child’s educational experiences. Kindergarten is not only the beginning of your son/daughter’s first formal education, it is also the first step toward life-long learning and social participation.
New experiences will make the year a special time for you and your child.
We’re sure that your child is feeling excited but anxious anticipating the upcoming school year. Your enthusiasm and involvement will help make the kindergarten year a wonderful time for both of you. What an incredible privilege it is to be a part of this journey with you and your family.
This year your children will spend time encouraging positive social interactions and will become more independent during the year. This will also be a year of tremendous academic growth. You will see your child blossom into an early reader and writer in addition to building many math skills. We will also explore several topics in science and social studies. Children will enjoy having fun, but also know the importance of creating a structured and organized learning environment.
If you are a first time parent in QAS, you will soon discover the amazing students, staff and community we have.
We hope that you will be able to have the opportunity to meet our staff and see our classrooms soon.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions. We are looking forward to forming a partnership with you this year and for years to come.
Thank you for choosing El Quadah American School!
