Ms. Lena LeBoeuf

Welcome to KINDERGARTEN at Polenta Elementary School... the ADVENTURE of learning begins here! I am very excited about being your child's teacher and I look forward to getting to know each one of you. Our classroom is a nurturing environment in which your child will feel successful and proud! It is my goal to build on your child's strengths through ongoing opportunities while instilling a love for learning that will serve as a foundation for the future. Our students will be involved in the process of developing classroom rules and routines that help establish a safe and positive learning environment in which all children can thrive. Students in this class are encouraged to become independent thinkers, problem solvers and responsible citizens. In our classroom we aren't just a class... we are a CLASS FAMILY!
