Welcome Letter

Welcome to UTK/CC

Welcome to Germain Academy for Academic Achievement.  Our names are Mrs. Carrillo and Mrs. Yoho.  We will be your child’s teachers and are very excited to be piloting this new program, UTK/CC. Together we can make your child's first school experience fun and successful.

Curriculum, materials, programs and grade level expectations will be discussed on Back to School Night on September 1st from 6:00pm-7:00pm.

Universal Transitional Kindergarten (UTK)/Collaborative Classroom (CC) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program. It follows the requirements of SB 1381 in providing a modified kindergarten curriculum that is both age and developmentally appropriate. Emphasis is placed on developing oral language skills and providing integrated experiences in language and literacy, social-emotional development, mathematics, physical development, the arts, science, social sciences, social studies, and English Language Development. (See REF-12350 for more information regarding UTK/CC program)

This year we will be using the website/app ClassDojo to communicate. You are able to message us directly through the app as well as see updates on your students. We will be sending you an invitation to your email on file at school.
