Ms. Rachel Foster



Hello! My name is Ms. Foster and I am the Kindergarten teacher. I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Elmhurst University. This year is my fifth year teaching. Kindergarten has been my favorite grade to teach, because  I love seeing how much the students grow as they begin to read, write, and become more independent. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, shopping, traveling, and watching movies. It is my mission to provide my students with a welcoming learning environment for them to grow, build friendships, explore their curiosity, gain confidence, and celebrate their mistakes as a learning opportunity. 



Important Dates: 

  • May 30: Memorial Day – No School

It’s hard to believe this school year is coming to an end! Thank you so much for all of your help and support this year. I hope everyone has a great summer! 🙂 

Reading: This week in reading we worked on reading and writing words with s blends (such as sp, sw, st, and sl). We also practiced reading and writing sight words we have previously learned. Please have your child practice reading these words at home too. 

Writing: We worked on printing the letter Z with the correct formation. Students identified words that start with Z. The students also continued to practice writing sentences with sight words, spaces between their words, and sounding out words on their own.

Math: We are reviewing skills we learned this year and took the end of the year diagnostic test on iReady. 

Science: Our science lesson was on using the design process.

Social Studies: We learned about Memorial Day, American symbols, and other holidays our country celebrates. 

Religion: This week we talked about how Jesus is always with us and loves us.
