Preschool- Ms. Lindsay

Welcome To A New Adventure

WELCOME to a new adventure!


Welcome to preschool!  My name is Miss Lindsay, and I am your child’s preschool teacher.  For some of you this is a brand new adventure and we are very excited to meet you and guide you along the way!  Our paraprofessional working with us in the room is Miss Sydney . We are ready to be back and are full of great ideas for a new school year!  We believe that this will be a fun and inspiring year for both you and your child. This year your child will learn many new and interesting things.  Throughout the year we will be sending home activities for you to do with your child to connect school and home. 

We will be sending letters home frequently, to keep you updated on what is happening in the room as well as using classdojo.   Your child will receive a blue folder that needs to come to school with them everyday. We will not be checking book bags instead your child will have a job of placing their blue folder in a bucket every day for us to check.  Feel free to write any questions or comments you have in the folder. Please make sure to check your child’s bag and communication folder daily.  

The theme of our room is “natural wonder”.  I have incorporated natural objects in each center such as sticks, rocks, shells, etc.  If you child finds interesting outside objects please encourage them to bring them in. Also this is their school family and I want it to feel as homey as possible.  If your child wants to bring in pictures of animals, family, friends or trips please do so. We will hang them in our room. The color in our room will be from your child’s work here at school/home.  I hope to encourage your child to use their imaginations and develop exploration skills during the next few months.I am excited to work as a team to help your child develop skills to foster a lifetime love of learning.

Please feel free to contact me through email at [email protected] or you may also call the school at 815.434.1250 during the school day and we will return your call as soon as we become available.Please do not hesitate to ask questions!  We look forward to seeing and hearing from you throughout the year!
