Kindergarten Open House/Orientation

Kindergarten Open House/Orientation



During the 2015-2016 school year we changed the Open House schedule and first day of school schedule for incoming Kindergarten students.  We received great parent feedback on the new structure so we will replicate it for this year.  Kindergarten Open House/Orientation will be held on September 5, 2017.  This is the first student day for first through third graders but a modified day for incoming kindergartners.  Please see the schedule below:


9:30-9:45 Kindergarten students arrive at school with parent/guardian/family member or designated adult.  Classroom teachers will be waiting to greet students and parents at the front of the school.

9:45-10:15 Teachers, students, and parents head to the classroom for a brief activity to become familiar with the learning environment.

10:15-10:45 Parents will head to the gym for orientation and meet staff members who work with Kindergarten classes.  At this time, students will remain in their classroom with their teacher. They will listen to a story, have a brief snack, and then head upstairs for an introductory bus ride (teachers will accompany children on the bus ride around the block). The bus ride concludes Open House/Orientation but the teachers will be available to answer any questions that may not have been addressed earlier in the day.  The following day, September 6th, will be a “regular” day for all kindergarten students.
