There is a great deal of research discussing the importance of kindergarten in a child's future development.

In recent weeks you have seen blog articles discussing the impact of your Annual Fund gift on scholarships, technology, and professional development. Every gift makes a difference to our students and the quality of education we are able to provide them each year.
We have a goal this year of reaching $40,000 in Annual Fund gifts from our families. Just last week we received a generous pledge from three parents. These three families have come together and determined to match up to $10,000 in gifts to the Annual Fund through our new $1-, $2-, or $3-a-Day campaign! Through the month of November, we are asking 50 families to commit to at least a dollar a day for the rest of our fiscal year (8 months) in order to have the entirety of their gift matched by these families.
In many schools, the students who are more confident and comfortable in social situations can more easily adapt to classroom settings. While your shy child may eventually adjust to his or her public school environment, we believe that a private school education is a wonderful and accommodating place for shy children to feel safe and comfortable at school.
