I hope you are enjoying your summer! The days are flying by and I'm getting excited to meet our new class of kindergartners! We will be funded for full-time kindergarten again this year, and will be doing a modified "start-up" schedule during the first week of school.
The district's first day of school will be Tuesday, September 2, but kindergarten will not start until later in the week. During the first three days of school, each kindergartner and his/her family will be scheduled to come in and spend about 30 minutes so that we can get to know each other and the child can become familiar with the classroom/school building. The first "school day" for kindergartners will be Friday, September 5.
If you have already registered your child for kindergarten, a letter with your scheduled family meeting time will be sent to you in late August. If you are not planning to register until the end of summer, your meeting will be scheduled when you register. We did these meetings last year and found them to be very helpful in reducing first day jitters!
I am looking forward to meeting you in a few weeks!
