Our Kindergarten teacher is Shannon Godfrey:
“I am happy to be named the new kindergarten teacher at PALS. My husband, Matt, and I were greatly blessed by PALS when our youngest two of 3 children attended here. I have a passion for working with young children and hope to inspire growth and learning as we embark on the adventure that is kindergarten!”
• a half-day kindergarten class – 9 a.m. til 1 p.m.
• 4 days per week – Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays
August through May
We limit our class to 16 children, with one teacher and one teacher’s aide.
Our primary goal is to prepare children for success in first grade.
We cover all the Georgia standards for Kindergarten and use DIBELS testing, the same assessment used by both Rome City and Floyd County Schools.
We also provide a gap-year Kindergarten for children with summer birthdays.
Our half-day program with small class size and hands-on learning give younger children an extra year to mature while still being challenged.
And for families who plan to homeschool:
PALS kindergarten provides an excellent educational foundation, upon which parents can build.
