Hello PK3 families! We have had such a great start to the school year. I am excited for all the learning and fun we are going to have this year! So far we have been working on understanding our daily schedule and routine. Students are learning how to walk in the hallway, where to put their backpacks, and much more! We have also started learning about letters. Each week we will focus on a different letter. In September we will be learning about the letters A, T, I, and P. We have also begun learning about the different colors and shapes. Students have enjoyed discovering the different colors they can make when mixed together. We will continue to explore different shapes and colors into September. Students have displayed a natural interest in cars, planes, trains, trucks, and anything that moves. I am interested to see where this natural curiosity takes us!

Dear PreK Family, 

Welcome to Pre Kindergarten! We have an exciting year ahead of us and I am thrilled to spend it with your child. Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Stacie Kjelden, the K in my last name is silent so it is pronounced Jelden. I grew up in the United States and have taught in a variety of places in the U.S. and Spain. This is my second year in South Korea and I am very excited for another great year here at BFS! 

I am honored to be given the opportunity to teach your child this year. I love working with early childhood students and their families. My goals for this year are for students to cultivate a love of school and learning, develop their social skills, and prepare their language and academic skills for their further education. In our Reggio Emilia based program we will be teaching, practicing and assessing these skills through a variety of units based on the students’ interests. I will keep you up to date on what our different learning goals and units are as the year progresses. 

The first day of school will be August 17th. Our school day begins at 8:20a.m. and ends at 3:30p.m. We will be using Bloomz to communicate and keep you up to date on important matters involving your child and the classroom. If you have any questions, concerns, or anything important you would like me to know you can contact me via Bloomz or by email at If you would like to meet in person please contact the front office and they can set up an appointment. 

I look forward to an amazing school year!
