New Frontiers School Board

hug2Kindergarten is the first step in a lifelong journey that will see your child learn, grow, achieve and succeed.  We look forward to sharing this journey with you and your child. As a parent or guardian, you are your child’s most important teacher. Together, you and your child’s teacher can create the nurturing environment that will lead to a lifelong love of learning.  In Kindergarten, your child will participate in a full range of activities – planned, taught, and supported by caring adults.
