Welcome To Kindergarten!
August 13, 2018
I am so happy to be your child’s kindergarten teacher for the upcoming
school year. Kindergarten is a milestone year for you and your child. In
previous years, kindergarten teachers were able to meet their students and
families during the first two days of school and do some assessment of their
skills. Our district’s policy changed and kindergarten students begin the year
on either August 23 or August 24. We will have a “Rolling Start” for
kindergarten students. Half of my class will start on August 23 (stay home
on the 24) and the other half will start on August 24 (stay home the 23 of
August). The kindergarten class, as a whole, will begin attending, everyday,
on Monday, August 27.
On the day that your child will start (either the 23 or 24) I would like to
meet with families and their children the first half hour of school. I will give
the families a tour of the classroom, collect school supplies, help families fill
out a transportation tag, and discuss homework.
August 29, from 6-7 pm, we will have an open house at Point Higgins. At
this time I will go over the kindergarten handbook, behavior system, and
answer questions regarding kindergarten.
On the first day of school please bring:
1. School supplies- All students please bring: a two-pocket homework
folder (label with student’s name), Crayola colored pencils, Crayola
crayons (24), Crayola washable markers, Crayola watercolor paint
set, 3 large glue sticks, pencil top erasers, and TICONDEROGA
Boys bring: paper plates, sandwich sized zip lock bags, 1 pkg. sponges
Girls bring: gallon sized zip lock bags, 1 container of Clorox wipes, and
1 box of tissues
2. Tennis shoes for P.E. (label with student’s name)
3. Ba`ckpack (label with student’s name)
4. Dishwasher safe water bottle (label with student’s name)
5. Knowledge of your child’s bus number for going home from school as
we will be filling out a transportation tag to put on your child’s
Please contact the bus company so that they know they are to pick and
drop off your child. They do not drop them off at your home as they
may have done in preschool. There are designated bus stops and the bus
company needs to know where your child will be getting on and off. The
bus company’s number is 225-3806.
The school day begins at 8:45 and ends at 3:15.
The students who will be attending school on August 23 are: Students with
s beginning with A-M.
The students who will be attending school on August 24 are: Students with
last names beginning with N-Z.
If that day does not work for you please call our school secretary and
reschedule for the other day. Our secretary is Laurie Northrup and she will
have a master list. Our school phone number is 247-1500.
Thank you and welcome to kindergarten!
