Welcome to Kindergarten!
The week of September 5th-8th has been set aside for our Kindergarten Soft Start. During this week, each child and a parent will be invited to the school for a specific time slot (typically between 1-2 hours) to meet the kindergarten staff, discuss specific information about your child’s needs and allow time for staff to formally and informally assess your child’s needs. Time will be set aside for each parent to speak with kindergarten staff in regards to transportation to and from school, health related issues, and information to help us meet your child’s needs. All information gathered during this appointment is essential for a smooth and positive transition into kindergarten.
After all appointments are completed, the kindergarten staff will meet and place children in their specific classroom/teacher. You will receive a personal phone call from your child’s assigned classroom teacher Thursday afternoon, Sept. 7th, to let you know of their assignment.
On Friday, September 8th, your child will join us for an “Orientation to Kindergarten” and will be invited to attend their specific classroom for an AM or PM session. During this time your child will bring his/her school supplies, find his/her cubby, practice using school materials, spend time in the school, the classroom, with classmates and his/her personal teacher.
Regular kindergarten classes will begin on Monday, September 11th following our regular daily school schedule, 7:50 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
We look forward to working with you to provide a solid start to your child’s educational career.
