Walker Elementary Kindergarten
2021 - 2022
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Your child has reached an important milestone! The staff of Roy Lee Walker Elementary is excited to welcome you and your child to kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year. We are looking forward to a positive home-school partnership to ensure that kindergarten is a successful experience for not only your kindergarten child but for your whole family. Our kindergarten is a full-day program from 8:00 AM to 3:07 PM.
Our academic program is child-centered. Through a Balanced Literacy approach that integrates curriculum, students are involved in learning experiences to meet individual needs. Kindergarten is the foundation for future learning. Some of those skills include:
Literacy (reading, writing, listening, speaking)
Math (concepts and number sense)
Collaborative and cooperative learning
Responsible and independent work habits
Critical thinking strategies
Transitioning into kindergarten is different for every child. It will be important for you to guide your child to find his/her way to independence. Your child will have opportunities to develop strong relationships. It is our goal that each class develops a community centered on positive relationships with peers and the teacher. Our kindergarten program is geared towards developing the whole child, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically.
Prior to the start of school, we will host a Supply & Say Hi Night for our students. This event will be held on Tuesday, August 10 from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. All students for the 2021-2022 school year will have the opportunity to meet their teachers and tour their classrooms. Pre-ordered school supplies will be delivered to each student’s homeroom.
We welcome you to Walker Elementary and we are happy to have you as a part of our school community. We will see you on the first day of school - Thursday, August 12, 2021. In addition, we will be hosting a Kindergarten Parent Night on Thursday, August 19, 2021, at 5:30 PM.
