Kindergarten Alternate Start

We are excited to try something new with our kindergarten students this year!! In the past, our kindergarten students would attend the 1st day of school all day. This was there first time attending for a full time, in a new building, with new peers, new teachers, new rules, and new surroundings. As you can imagine, this could be overwhelming for our incoming 5 year old students. This year, the first day, 8/24, for kindergarten students will be set for one-on-one parent/student meetings. The second kindergarten day, 8/25, will be split into two halves. One half will meet of each classroom roster will attend from 8:00-10:45 and the other half will attend from 12:00-2:45. Teachers will focus on school and classroom expectations with small groups of students. We are attempting to make the transition into kindergarten much smoother for our newest, youngest Little Chiefs. We believe this alternate beginning will help us accomplish that.
