Welcome to McGuire!

Your child is about to embark on a great future

The 2015-16 school year will begin on:

Wednesday, August 31st.

In order to make your child's transition into kindergarten smooth, we have a few tips for you.

Arrival

  • Arrive a few minutes early. Returning students will be gathering in the blacktop area where student k-2 will be set to line-up outside of the gymnasium door and students 3-5 will line up in the back of the building to enter through the side door.

Line-up

  • The students will usually line up by class outside of the gym door if weather permits. Staff members will be there to help and classroom teachers will arrive outside to meet their new class.

Supply List

  • A class materials list will come home with your child if you haven't already received it by end of summer. Please help to get these items as quickly as possible as they will help your child be successful in class.

End of Day

  • At the end of the day, the Kindergarten class will exit out of the front doors.
  • Ask your child about his or her day and listen to all the amazing things they are learning. Even if they have trouble leaving you that first morning, by the time the end of the day comes, their fears will start to be alleviated and hopefully within a few day, they can't wait to get to school and are sad when it is time to leave!

About the McGuire PTA

  • Our Parent-Teacher Association consists of seven board members who volunteer their time to help ensure our kids have opportunities for a fun and memorable experience at McGuire.
  • We can not do it alone. We have amazing parent volunteers to help at all of the different events but we need more and hope you will consider being one of them.
  • Whether it's volunteering to cut box tops at home, becoming a classroom parent, helping out at one or several events or serving on the board, any time you can give us is always appreciated.
  • We welcome your questions and suggestions whether it be at our general meetings or through contacting us on Facebook or via email, we will do our best to reply and we hope you and your child will join us in making memories and lasting friends here at McGuire.
  • See you in September! Be on the lookout for information on how to join and be involved!
