The Kindergarten Experience at Copper King

We are happy to be here today, to share with you our journey through The Kindergarten Experience. Today we have with us, Dr. Isela Garcia. She is Project Director with the Alesi Group.

"We embrace children's natural curiosities and believe that through their active exploration, analyzes and discovery that they will become proficient learners with the ability to create new ideas and concepts."

Our Mission Today: We are here to encourage the partnership between Pendergast Schools and the Alesi Group. This partnership will help support our teachers with student growth, across the district. We have begun our journey with Conscious Discipline, a stepping stone to The Kindergarten Experience's philosophy. We believe our district's next step is to form a relationship with Alesi Group.
