Our Kindergarten students will explore core academics in areas such as math, social studies, science, reading, and writing, as well as music, art, library and physical education specials. Our school Counselors also play a role in our educational program with focuses on creating a positive learning environment, peaceful problem solving skills, and more. 

At the beginning of the school year, Kindegartners will receive their school t-shirts. They proudly display our elementary school character development program models of Hayshire P.O.W.E.R, Roundtown P.R.O.U.D., or Stony Brook R.O.A.R.
