Mrs. Burkhart's Classroom
Welcome to Kindergarten
Hello. My name is Suzie Burkhart. I graduated from Fort Hays State University with a BS in Elementary Education and an endorsement in early childhood. I love working with the younger children as they begin their career in education. I am married to my best friend, Tom. We have two wonderful children!! Zach is getting his masters degree at Fort Hays State University and Aubree is attending Wichita State University. We love spending time at the lake skiing and swimming.
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or concerns. My school email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I can access my email at home and school. You may also call Munson 777-0151 and leave a message. I will return your call as soon as I can.
A Little About Our Classroom…..
Our school hours are 7:50-3:15. You can bring your child as early as 7:35 if he/she will be eating breakfast at school. Please bring your child to the gym; each teacher has an assigned place for students to sit. We will go out the front doors at the end of the day; you can pick-up your child from me out front. Those students who ride a bus or go to learn & grow will go to the gym at the end of the day.
ALL visitors that come to school during school hours will need to ring the bell out front to be let in and then sign in at the office. You will receive a visitor pass. Your child’s safety is very important to us!
TAKE HOME FOLDERS: Each night your child will bring home a folder. Please check the folder for completed papers & notes. Return items to me through the folder. This prevents things from getting lost. In the back of the folder you will find a monthly calendar to keep you posted on upcoming events. Be sure to check this often.
CURRICULUM: Scott Foresman Reading, GoMath, McGraw Hill Social Studies and Science, Pathways Phonemic Awareness, Lucy Caulkins Writing, and Zaner-Bloser Handwriting.
SPECIALS: Music with Mr. Dean, Library with Mrs. Warren, Art with Mrs. Treat, & P.E. with Mrs. Williams (please make sure your child wears tennis shoes these days).
BIRTHDAY TREATS: Each child may bring in special treats on their birthday. Just let me know ahead of time the day you want to celebrate. I try to have birthday treats during our regular snack time at 2:45pm. I will pass out party invitations ONLY if there is enough for every child in the class.
VOLUNTEERS: If you are interested in volunteering in our classroom please email me or send a note.
