• Welcome to Kindergarten! 

     

     

     

     Kindergarten Orientation

     

    Kindergarten Orientation will take place on Thursday, August 29, 2019. Students will have an opportunity to meet the teachers, tour the building and see the classrooms.  Kindergarten students will be able to board a school bus and practice putting on seatbelts.  Parents will have an opportunity to have questions answered.

    Orientation will begin at 10:00 a.m.  Kindergarten parents and students will meet in the school cafeteria.  Orientation will last approximately 45 minutes.  I am looking forward to seeing you all at the orientation.

     Each student will receive an ID number on the first day of school. This ID number is used for buying lunch in the cafeteria. The number links to their account, which you can add money to at any time.  I will provide lunch cards with ID numbers for the children to use until they have their numbers memorized. If you choose to send lunch money in with your child instead, please have it clearly labeled with your child's name. You will be notified when the balance is getting low. 


     

    Friendly Reminder

    Please write your child's name on the envelope when sending in lunch money.

    Thank you!
