"Kindergarten is such an essential point in a child's social, emotional, and cognitive development. Certainly, our teachers focus on exposing students to foundational literacy and numeracy skills, but above all else we want students to feel excited about learning, to interact with other children, and to understand how to participate as a part of a school community." - Ryan Westenskow, Principal, Greenwood Elementary
