Welcome to Mrs. Kraenbring's
If you are new to the Kutz Community, Welcome. If you are a current Kutz Parent, I look forward to working with you this year. My name is Shirley Kraenbring and I am your child’s kindergarten teacher.
I have been teaching Kindergarten at Kutz for 12 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 learn 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 Kindergarten we focus on letter, letter formation, and letter sound recognition skills. The children will learn sight words and practice applying these skills when illustrating and writing stories. Your son or daughter will take part in both whole group and small group reading instruction.
Kindergarten is adopting the Math in Focus® program. Math in Focus is the new district elementary math curriculum, grades K-6. Your child will; learn numbers 0-100, compare numbers and sets, explore addition and subtraction, and learn problem solving strategies.
Kindergarten Orientation and Back to School Meeting is scheduled for August 29, at 1:30. The first day of school is Tuesday, September 3. 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 12:50 – 3:30. Parent drop off is required at 12:50. Your child may take a bus home at dismissal. The Transportation Department will be in touch with you concerning your child’s assigned bus and bus stop location.
I look forward to seeing you in August! Enjoy your summer.
