Welcome to Kindergarten!
Hello! My name is Ellen Day and I am your kindergarten teacher this year. I live with my husband Jack Day. We have two adult daughters.
I have been an Early Childhood educator since 1984. In 32 years I have seen many changes in education. I bring lots of ideas and experience to the classroom each year. My goal is to create a learning community where every child is encouraged to grow in independence and develop a love for learning. In my free time I enjoy running 5 K road races, traveling to swim meets and watching folk music concerts with my husband.
Mrs. Kuper, our wonderful kindergarten assistant, joins us four times a week. She is also a parent of three girls. She assists in the classroom, facilitates small groups of children during our activity time and supervises recess and lunch periods. I feel very fortunate for her assistance in making the kindergarten year a successful one and we are both very happy to be a part of your child's kindergarten experience.
Each day your child will bring home his/her red communication folder. I will use it to send home newsletters and school notices and encourage you to send me notes in this folder as well. It is the best way to get in touch with me. You can email me at edaysch.ci.lexington.ma.us and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner, usually within 24 hours. For urgent needs, please call the school (781-861-2500) and leave a message with the main office staff.
Thank you for helping your child. I look forward to working with you and your family this year.
