  • Kindergarten Families,

    My name is Shirley Kraenbring, and I am your child’s kindergarten teacher. I look forward to working with you this school year.

    I have been teaching Kindergarten at Kutz for 15 years. My husband and I live in the Kutz area. We have two grown daughters that attended Kutz several years ago. I enjoy seeing my kindergarten friends when I am out and about in the Doylestown Community. 

    In Kindergarten your child will practice their Learning to Learn Skills. The children will develop their listening skills, how to independently follow classroom routines, turn taking skills, as well as how to be an active valued member of a classroom.

    The Central Bucks Kindergarten curriculum is academically based.  In Language Arts we focus on letter, letter formation, and letter sound recognition skills. Children will learn how to blend the letter sounds together to read and write words. The children will learn sight words and practice applying these skills when illustrating and writing stories. In Math, your child will; learn numbers 0-100, compare numbers and sets, explore addition and subtraction, along with problem solving skills. 

    A Kindergarten Orientation and Back to School Meeting is scheduled for August 25, at 1:00. The first day of school is Monday, August 29. Morning Kindergarten attends 8:50 – 11:25. Your child may ride a bus to school. Parent pickup is required at 11:25. Afternoon Kindergarten attends 12:55 – 3:30. Parent drop-off is required at 12:50. Your child may take a bus home at dismissal.

    I look forward to seeing you at Kindergarten Orientation!

    Shirley Kraenbring
