Welcome to Kindergarten!  I've been a Kindergarten teacher now for 13 years, 10 with Fairfax County Schools and this is my 3rd year at Springwoods.  I have an Associates in Early Childhood Education, Bachelors in Elementary Education, and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.  I'm looking forward to another fantastic year here in the 'woods!

Hello Families!
Please make sure to check the PWCS home page for the most up to date information regarding school closures and virtual learning.  In the meantime, have your favorite Kindergartner read daily, spend time outdoors, and explore some of the online learning opportunities the K team included in our packets.
Packet information can now be accessed in the documents tab of this page.  The calendar of activities is located on the homework tab.  Please check the documents tab for the quarter 3 and 4 pacing guides.  We were on schedule for each subject/week on the pacing guide (most information you had from weekly newsletters).  Thinking of you all, and missing my Kindergartners so much!!! Please email if you need anything...I'd love to hear how the kids are doing.  Take care, Mrs. Buswell 

Virtual Schoolhouse Information: 
Weekly calendars are located in the homework tab of this page and will also be emailed each week on Sunday.  Links to suggested resources are on the Virtual Schoolhouse tab, and Encore class resources can be found on the Encore tab of class pages.  Stay healthy and please email if you have any questions! Take care, Mrs. Buswell
