Kindergarten Students: Info for September

Welcome to allour incoming K families! This is an exciting time for you and your child. To help ease the transition, Kindergarten has a gradual entry process that allows us to get to know your child, as well has supporting your child in learning new routines and independence. Our Kindergarten gradual entry schedule is attached below.  

You can see there is no school for your child on September 6, but you can expect a welcome to Kindergarten email from our K teachers, introducing themselves to you. At this time, we do not know which of our three teachers will be your child's teacher. That will be determined once the interviews are complete, and we have a better sense of your child. We always do our best to create balanced classrooms, and you can be assured that all three classrooms are wonderful places to learn and grow.

By now you should have received two links so that you can sign up for a time slot for one on one interviews, as well as express your preference for morning or afternoon small groups. If you have not done so, please indicate the day and time frame you prefer for your one on one interview using this link.  

You can indicate your preference for morning or afternoon small groups using this link. Please be aware that morning is often preferred, so if you are flexible, it is best to indicate so. Otherwise we end up with more students in the morning than afternoon, and that takes away from the intent of a smaller ratios group for these few days.  Please do not complete these forms more than once.

We will be confirming your interview time and your child's small group placement in the week before school starts. Your child's class placement will be confirmed on Friday, Sept. 9 quite late in the day. At that time you will receive all the information you will need to start the next Monday Sept. 12.

Please do note that traffic can be problematic during pick up and drop off. Parents are not to use the front driveway for pick up and drop off. Instead, please park on the street, or use the parking lot at the church, and walk to your child's kindergarten door. As your child grows, we encourage all parents to drop their older students off in the upper loop parking lot, and meet them there after school. The playground is supervised from 8:15 until the bell.

We look forward to meeting everyone in September!
