Welcome to the Kindergarten 2017-2018 Webpage

My name is Melinda Bentz and this is my fourth year teaching Kindergarten  at SES. I taught first grade at SES for 12 years. I have 3 children. My son Beck graduated from Catoctin High School last year.  My daughter Emma is in 11th grade at Catoctin High School.  My daughter Faith is in 7th grade at Thurmont Middle School.   
I have lived in Frederick County most of my life.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, walking and listening to music.
