Hello! My name is Lindsey Jensen and I am excited to be teaching kindergarten at Seven Hills this school year! I have been teaching for three years, two years as a third grade teacher and one year as a kindergarten teacher. I graduated from the University of Minnesota for both my bachelor's degree as well as my master's degree. I have three dogs at home, two pugs and an australian shepherd. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends on the weekends and watching sports. I am excited to have a great year with your child in kindergarten!
A few of my favorites:
Food: popcorn or anything gluten free!
Sports team: Packers
Children's book: Have You Filled a Bucket Today?

Snacks and Food in the Classroom
Seven Hills Classical Academy is a NUT AND PEANUT FREE SCHOOL! Due to severe food allergies of students and staff, children will not be allowed to bring ANY snacks or food that contains or may contain nuts or peanuts.
ONLY FOOD FROM THE APPROVED SNACK LIST WILL BE ALLOWED IN CLASSROOMS.
It is of the utmost importance that each parent and child understands the severity of this rule and follows it explicitly! Some allergies are so severe that they are life threatening.
Parents should make sure that they pack lunches that do not include peanut butter, peanuts or any nut product. Please check all labels carefully. Any snacks that are brought to school should remain in their original wrapper so the food labels can be checked. Thank you for understanding.
Your child’s birthday is a special day and we like to recognize your child on his/her birthday or as close to the date as possible. For those who have summer birthdays, you can celebrate a Half-Birthday or choose a day to celebrate in May or June. Each birthday child will be given a birthday crown to wear on his/her special day. Celebrating and sharing treats with the Kindergarten class is fine as long as arrangements have been made with the classroom teacher. Any snacks that are brought to school should be small, child-sized portions.
The teacher will not be giving a birthday party. The birthday will be celebrated during our regular snack time. Please remember when planning your child’s birthday party, keep in mind the feelings of all the children at school. Unless all the boys and girls are invited to a party, please do not have your child pass out invitations at school or on the bus. The class directory will be the best way to contact families or mail invitations.
