    Dear Families,

              It is almost time for Kindergarten to begin and Temple School is excited for your child to walk through the doors on September 5th!  Our classroom is filled with an ocean theme so be ready to learn, share and have fun as we swim through the year together in room 136…


              Many of you know me as Mrs. Dina Telford. However, as of last September , I became Mrs. Dina Marchincin…or Mrs. M for short!   

              I am a mother/step mom of five wonderful children, Katelynn and Colin who are college Juniors at Fredonia State and Keuka College.  Andrew and Tyler who are Seniors and Kiara who is a Junior at Frewsburg Central School.  It seems like only yesterday that I was in your shoes sending my babies off to Kindergarten…time sure flies!!


              I began teaching First Grade at Temple in 1992.  In 2001, I returned from maternity leave to teach Kindergarten and soon became a “looping teacher”, taking my Kindergarten kids with me for a second year at the First Grade level.  In June of 2007, I was asked to take the position as the Universal Pre-K teacher!  In 2013, I was asked to return to Kindergarten! I am thrilled and so excited to be working with your child in my 25th year of teaching at Temple Elementary!


              This year, we will be having “Kindergarten Parent Night and Open House” PRIOR to the start of school, on  Wednesday August 30st from 5:45-7:00 pm. (5:45-6:00 Parent Meeting followed by 6:00-7:00 Open House) PLEASE BRING ALL OF YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO OPEN HOUSE.  It will make it easier for your child on the first day of school.  I look forward to seeing all of you at Open House!


    See you soon!

    Mrs. M


    P.S.  Please attach the enclosed bear to your child’s backpack with a pin or string.  This “Turquoise” bear tells the adults in the building that your child is in Kindergarten in Mrs. Marchincin’s Classroom.  It will help with a smooth transition for the first few weeks of school!!
