Hello! Welcome future kinders and families! My name is Mrs. Mudroch and I am so excited for you to become part of our Bulldog School Family!

Kindergarten is an important milestone in a child’s life. It’s a time for children to expand their love of learning, knowledge, interests and their ability to get along with others. It’s going to be a year of wonder and amazing growth for your child.

My classroom is an inviting place where we are going to have fun learning math, reading, writing, science and lots more! Together, we are going to learn, grow and become a school family. I look forward to our kindergarten adventure with each child and family. We will have a fun-tastic year!

To Many Happy Days,

Mrs. Mudroch

Welcome! I am Ms. Freeman, and this will be my third year teaching Kindergarten. I am so excited to meet all of you! It is going to be an exciting new year with lots of new friends and adventures! 

In my classroom, we work hard to do our best while helping each other along the way. My goal is for each child to become a kind, helping community member while striving to be the best they can be academically. We not only focus on reading, math, writing, and science, but we also focus on how to solve conflicts independently, how to show respect for peers/teachers/materials, and how to play and cooperate with others!

I want every student to find love in learning while feeling safe, cared about, and excited to come to school each day! We are going to have an amazing journey together, and I’m excited for you to become a part of our Bulldog Family!
