Welcome To School!

Hello Parents!  Here we are; the First Day of School is upon us.  Those sweet little Kindergarteners will be walking through those doors for their first day of Kindergarten.  What a milestone! 

Here are a few things that you need to know for the first week of school:

  • Don’t forget to send in a snack each day.
  • Please talk to your child about whether they are buying lunch or packing lunch.  Sometimes they become confused about this during the first week of school.
  • Feel free to send in a water bottle for your child to take on the playground.  If you do send in a water bottle, please label it with your child’s name.
  • If you send in money, please put it in an envelope and label it with your child’s name and my name.

Our encore schedule for the week:

  • Monday – PE
  • Tuesday – Library or Guidance
  • Wednesday – PE
  • Thursday – Music
  • Friday – Guidance

I know that we are going to have a great first week of school.
