Welcome to Volma Overton Elementary
We are so proud of our Kindergarten scholars.
It is very exciting to have your child in our Kindergarten classrooms. We look forward to working with you to make this a successful and exciting school year for our scholars.

Involve me and I learn. -Benjamin Franklin
We have set high academic goals for our scholars.
Kindergarteners are learning about story structure, making inferences, producing rhymes, decoding, writing words and sentences, adding and subtracting, cultures and communities and all about science. Our curriculum is designed to further promote the development of social, emotional, physical and intellectual areas of a diverse community of learners. This opens opportunities in which they explore, investigate and predict in a safe, supportive classroom environment.
You can help your scholar meet these goals.
We ask that parents ensure that scholars come to school daily and are only absent under dire circumstances. Daily attendance is imperative for good, productive learning. Parental assistance with weekly homework, 20 minutes of reading daily, looking forward to school announcements, inquiring about their scholar's school day and providing reading opportunities are some ways parents can enrich their children's lives and is greatly appreciated.
We will achieve this growth.
The education of your child is a partnership among parents, teachers and scholars. We are delighted to be the platfform of what will be the beginning of a life-changing asset such as, the education of your child. We strive to help scholars feel empowered, valued, competent and successful in school.
Keeping a productive classroom requires healthly habits for scholars.
Washing hands when necessary, keeping fingers off nose and mouth, coughing or sneezing into the elbow rather than hands, providing daily breakfast and getting plenty of sleep every night are some important habits for scholars to develop to stay healthy for productive learning.
This is a pivotal year for skills to come together for each scholar to become more developed as a learner.
Because you are an essential part of your child’s education, please feel free to contact Overton Elementary if you have any questions.
Thank you in advance for your time and support.
