First Day of School

The first day of school is almost here! I am so excited to meet my new class! I am certain many of you have questions, comments, concerns, and emotions. Hopefully the following information will help. Here are a few things to know about the first day:

  • We will meet down on the playground between 7:50 - 8:10 (school starts at 8:10am).  The basketball court is where we will line up each morning.
  • Please remember, no backpacks.  Although it's fun to choose a new backpack, we just don't have the space for them.  Backpacks will be something to look forward to in first grade.  
  • Please send a small snack for our nutrition break.  It can be in a lunch box or bag with your child's name.  This is not lunch, just a short break, so a small healthy snack is plenty.
  • If you are able, we invite you to join us for the first 15 minutes in our classroom as we read our first story together as a class.
  • Dismissal will be at 12:30!! Please note that this has changed from other kindergarten years.  Please pick up you child on the ramp in the front of the school. I ask that you come introduce yourself to me - tell me your name and your child's name - this way, I can start getting to know faces and make pick-up as safe as possible. 
  • On the first day of school, your child will come home with a first day packet full of papers from the office. Please be on the look out for this important packet, fill out the appropriate paperwork, and return to school as soon as possible. 

  • Smile! The first day of Kindergarten is exciting!
Also, Back to School Night will be Thursday, August 22 at 5:30pm in the Cub's Den (Sanctuary) on our campus.  Please plan to attend.  We will be covering a lot of important information.  For this reason we encourage you to find child care for your children.
Enjoy your weekend and I will see you Monday!
