CROC TALK BRIEF
Nancy Ryles Elementary Newsletter ~ January 22, 2021
KINDERGARTEN ORIENTATION AND REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR
We are compiling a list of incoming kindergarteners. If you have a child who will enter kindergarten next fall, please click on the link below and complete the form. If you know of other families who have incoming kindergarteners, please share the link with them! Thanks!
We will host two KINDERGARTEN EVENTS this year.
- Thursday, February 25 at 6:00 p.m. (via Zoom). This event will be a general school overview, meet the principal, curriculum overview and provide information on registration.
- Thursday, May 20 at 6:00 p.m. (TBD - in person, if possible, or via Zoom). This will be a traditional orientation event. You will meet the principal and kindergarten teachers, learn more specific information about a day in the life of a kindergarten student and obtain information on helping your child be ready for kindergarten.
Parents are encouraged to attend both events, if at all possible.
Online registration will begin at the end of January.
Wonder Wednesday - We’re keeping this link here for you to check out with your kiddos, or let them explore on their own. Our focus in this fun, virtual classroom for the month of January, is to share about different cultures. There are no projects or activities to complete this month. It’s all about learning, listening, watching the Cultural performance and enjoying. So when your kiddo has a little extra time, have them check it out here: Wonder Wednesday.
