In Kindergarten, we learn handwriting, phonics and word recognition and perceive ourselves as authors and illustrators from the very first day of school. Through our Writers Workshop we develop the life-long skill of communicating ideas through drawings and words. We also grow in our faith with a hands-on religion program and develop our missionary spirit as we raise funds for our Goat Project.

"My hopes for this school year are: to create a positive, respectful, encouraging and supportive classroom where each child feels included and safe. I believe in teaching the whole child to support and help them reach their full God given potential. I am excited to be part of the OLL community."
