Important information about Valentine's Day in the classroom!

This year our Valentine's Day will look a little different. Per district policy, there won't be any shared items passed out student to student in classrooms. That includes cards, treats, pencils, erasers etc. Instead we will focus on "showing love and caring for others".

Calling all soon to be kindergarteners!



Kindergarten Planning Forms

If you have a child (or know someone that doesn't currently have children in school) that will be 5 years old by September 1, 2021 please let the office know!

We would love to put you on our list of incoming kindergarteners! We will be able to pass along all of the information that is needed for dates, times and all upcoming events for 2021-22!

Kindergarten Kick Off

Kick Off will look different this year. We will have a video with kindergarten information that parents can view starting March 1st or 2nd. On March 4th, we will have a video conference with parents to answer questions they still may have.

(Because time is limited on the video conference, please make sure you have watched the video before the March 4th meeting).

Any parent interested in enrolling their student in All Day Kindergarten, and wants to be on the districts interest list, needs to be registered before March 24. March 24th 8am the list will be available online to show interest in All Day Kindergarten. When the list is full, families may go on a waiting list but are not assured a spot for the 2021-22 school year.
