Welcome to Kindergarten at North Bay Haven Charter Elementary! I am Mrs. Summerbell. This is my 19th year teaching Kindergarten in the Bay District School System and my 9th year at North Bay Haven. I am looking forward to learning and growing with your child this year as their kindergarten teacher. This is sure to be an exciting time for you as your child begins their official journey to becoming a life-long learner. Each year I spend time encouraging positive social interactions among the students, helping them to become more independent during the school year, and nurturing a classroom of respectful and caring children. It will also be a year of tremendous academic growth. You will see your child blossom into an early reader and writer in addition to building many math skills. Science and Social Studies topics will be integrated into our Reading, Writing, and Math curriculum. I enjoy having fun in the classroom, but also know the importance of creating a structured and organized learning environment.
If you are new to our school, you will soon discover the amazing students and families, and faculty/staff that we have. I am very excited to meet you and work with you throughout the school year.
Please be sure to check the class website for classroom updates, assignment information, and general announcements. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me!
