Welcome to Kindergarten!Please join us for Kindergarten Orientation on Thursday, June 1st, 2017 from 10:00 - 11:30 am. Rising kindergarten students will be able to visit a kindergarten classroom and take part in a "Welcome to Kindergarten" activity. Families and caregivers will meet together in the Media Center to learn everything about kindergarten and have all questions answered. We hope that your family will join us.During the first week of school, August 28th – September 1st 2017, all kindergarten students will participate in Kindergarten Staggered Entry by coming to school for just one day. This allows the students to acclimate to school in a much smaller group, and it allows for our teachers to assess students’ social, physical, and academic needs. Please note that the teacher your child works with on their staggered entry day may not be the classroom teacher that your student is eventually assigned to.
Transportation: For staggered entry day, the kindergartener may ride the bus, walk, or come through carpool.
Times: Staggered Entry times will be the normal school hours from 8:45 am until 3:45 pm.
Lunch: Kindergarten students may bring a lunch or they may purchase a lunch in the cafeteria for a cost of $2.35 (increased price for 2017 - 2018 school year.)Please note, all rising kindergarten students will receive a welcome letter the second week inAugust which will outline each student's specific Staggered Entry Date.All kindergarten families are invited to Kindergarten "Meet the Teacher" onFriday, September 1st, 2017 from 11:30 am until 12:30 pm.What can my kindergarten student do over the summer to prepare for kindergarten?
