Dear Kindergarten Families,Welcome to Kindergarten! It is my pleasure to welcome you and your child to Richland Elementary School. My name is Janel Kilpela and I will be your child’s teacher. This is my 6th year teaching morning kindergarten at Richland Elementary and my 14 year teaching in the district. I earned my Master’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Duquesne University. On a more personal note, I reside in the North Hills with my husband and two children.Thank you for taking the time to visit the kindergarten website. Under my name, on the left, you will find information and procedures valid for the school year, and for everyone in the class. Weekly newsletters will be emailed on Friday afternoons. Please be sure to check your child’s green communication folder nightly for daily work.
Sincerely,Mrs. Janel Kilpela
