Is it okay to play on the Kindergarten playground before and after school?
No. Students must line up with their respective class until their teacher gets them. After school, pick up your child and please exit the kindergarten area.
Does my child need a snack?
Please provide one small snack for your child to eat during the half day sessions. Please send snacks/containers that your child is able to open themselves. Please do not send any glass containers. If your child is in Kid’s First, please separate the snack from the lunch.

My child is advanced, how will their needs be met?
Each class is comprised of students with a wide range of academic, social and emotional levels. There is much more to kindergarten than academics. Students in kindergarten also work on developmentally appropriate skills with their peers. As teachers, we differentiate instruction to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of all students.
What will my child learn in kindergarten?
The beginning of kindergarten focuses on establishing procedures, routines, and getting to know each other. Establishing these foundations allows us to move forward with academic rigor. You can learn more about the kindergarten day by attending Back To School Night or by visiting the Common Core website: http://www.corestandards.org/
Where do I pick up my child?
How do I talk to my teacher?
The best way to communicate with your child’s teacher is by email. We are unable to speak with parents in the morning during drop off because we are focused on getting the students’ day started.
What does my child need to bring to school on a daily basis:
Please send the following with your child: a small, healthy snack for recess and a full-sized back pack (without wheels), jackets/sweaters as needed.
What is the beginning of the year assessment used for?
We use the information to learn about your child and prepare for the best school year for each of our students.
My child did not attend the August assessment day, what now?
We emphasize participating in our August assessment day. It is a chance for your student to see us and the school before the first day, which can lower anxiety levels. It also allows us to meet your children and prepare for a fantastic first day. Our August Assessment day is Wednesday, August 5th. If you cannot participate in the August assessment day, your child’s teacher will make an appointment with you to do the assessments.
