Kindergarten - Class of 2032

Dear Kindergarten families,
Welcome to Kindergarten at Bayfield Primary School!  I am excited to learn and grow with your child this year.  This is a special time; your child is beginning their official journey as a life-long learner.  They will learn invaluable social skills, increase their independence, and become part of a classroom of respectful and caring students.  They will also experience tremendous academic growth.
If you are a first time parent in the Bayfield School District, you will soon discover the amazing students, staff, and community we have.  I can't express how honored and privileged I feel to be a part of your child's education this year. 
I am excited to meet and work with you throughout the school year and would love for you to reach out to me with questions, concerns, or ideas. 
Ameryn Maestas

As a part of our work, students will earn "steps" at home by reading to and with their family members and complete a 100 Book Challenge.  More information and answers to some frequently asked questions can be found here: 100 Book Challenge
