Dear Parents and Guardians,

 We are thrilled to have your Kindergartner joining our school beginning this fall. We have a special transition process in place for our Kindergarten students called Balanced Beginnings. The first days of school will be staggered, with small groups of students coming rather than the entire class. This eases the transition into Kindergarten and allows teachers and students to build positive relationships, introduce the new environment and routines, and collect informal data as they begin their year with students. 

This means that Kindergarten students will not begin full days of school until Monday, August 12th. Your Kindergarten students has been assigned a half day to come in and transition into their classrooms with a small group of 6-8 students on Wednesday, August 7 or Thursday, August 8.  E-mails were sent out the week of the 22nd - 26th.  New families will be given there time slot upon registration.

The morning times on the 7th and 8th  will be broken into the following sessions:

  • 9:30-10:00 - Meet parents (supplies)
  • 10:00- 12:00 - Small Group 

The afternoon times will be broken into the following sessions:

  • 1:00-1:30 - Meet parents (supplies)
  • 1:30- 3:30 - Small Group

Additionally, on Friday August 9th your child will be assigned a 30 minute appointment to work through several beginning of the year assessments that help us determine our instruction.  Your teacher will have your time slot posted for your during Back to School Night on August 5th.

 We are looking forward to meeting your Kindergartener and making their transition a smooth and joyful one!

 Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
