Ms. Gerri Renfrow - Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

Every child is a different kind of flower and all together make this world a beautiful garden.  We have a diverse population of students that make Chesterbrook a great place to be. The love of learning begins here!  I believe that the foundation made in Kindergarten will follow a child for the rest of their educational career. It is important to have positive and safe learning experiences that will help a child to grow Academically and Socially. Parent- Teacher relationships are also important. I value the trust parents place in me to help their child to blossom into little scholars! Throughout the year I will communicate through my website, notes, telephone call, emails, report cards and parent teacher conferences.  Please visit the class calendar page to see important upcoming dates.  You will also find information about upcoming projects, field trips, events, and resources.

 

A little About Ms. Renfrow

I have been a member of Chesterbrook Academy since 2015. During my years here I have been in the grade levels before Kindergarten and after. I have worked with 1st grade, been Pre-K Lead, and this will be my 2nd year in Kindergarten! My love for education was a part of my life growing up. I followed in my Mothers footsteps who has been a Kindergarten teacher for over 30 years. I graduated with a Bachelors degree in English Literature from North Carolina Central University where I also studied Elementary Education. Education is a passion of mine and I look forward to rocking out this school year, growing, and learning together.

If you have any questions I can be reached through my email: Gerri.renfrow@chesterbrookacademy.com

Our Year in Kindergarten

This will be an amazing year in Kindergarten! In my classroom we use a hands on approach to learning. This allows all the students to learn through multiple approaches. Our structured day focuses on learning literacy, math, writing, social studies, science, and social emotional lessons through rigorous instruction. I meet my students at their learning level and encourage and help them to reach their full potential. Throughout the year the students will complete several stem projects, project based learning collaborations, volunteer assignments, and become published authors through our Student Treasure Book project.

 

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively

and to think critically. Intellegence plus character-

that is the goal of true educaiton

Classroom Notes

Look Whats Happening in Kindergarten!

  • Phillips Farm Pumpkin Patch field trip forms will go home on Monday October 7, 2019. Please sign and return.  Students will need to bring lunch that day. Please put your child’s lunch in a disposable bag. They may bring their water bottles to stay hydrated. We will be wearing our yellow field trip shirts. We will determine if a jacket is appropriate for the weather before we go.
  • Remember red communication folders travel from school to home everyday. Green homework folders go home on Tuesday and should be turned in on Friday.
  • Our first Project Based Learning assignment will begin next week. “The Hunger Project” will focus on answering the question: How can we impact hunger in our community? This project will end with the students planning and hosting a Food drive in November that will involve the entire student body. More information will be sent home next week.
