Welcome to kindergarten!
The summer is winding down and we’re looking forward to the beginning of the school year. If you have a child who will be entering kindergarten this fall, please register him or her as soon as possible. There is a link with information on the district’s home page, or you may visit or call the district office at 509-445-1125. Early registration helps us in assigning staff and in making sure we have enough materials for all students. Thank you for your help!
It is important for parents and guardians to know that kindergarten students will not attend school until Friday, September 4. Wednesday and Thursday, September 2 and 3, will be devoted to family connection meetings for kindergarten students and their families. You will be asked to come in for a brief (about 30 minutes) meeting so that we can get to know one another, I can learn more about your child, and you can learn more about what to expect in kindergarten. We have conducted these meetings for the past two years, and they seem to really help the kids (and adults!) to feel more comfortable and prepared for this big transition.
We will contact you during the last week of August to set up a meeting time; but remember that we cannot contact you if you haven’t registered! So please, register your kindergartner as soon as you can!
I look forward to meeting you and working with you this year!
