Welcome to Snail Lake!

Welcome, Snail Lake families!
Hello Snail Lake Families,
I hope this message finds you enjoying the summer weather!
At Snail Lake, partnership is at the center of all we do. Our teachers and support staff look forward to getting to know you and your child as we begin to work together this year for the success of your child.
Although the start of the school year is still many weeks away, I want to reach out about some key dates between now and the start of the year that help to facilitate strong partnerships:
By August 20, you will receive your child’s teacher assignment as well as directions on how to sign up for an Early Connection meeting on September 2.
By early September, bus information (including specific pick-up and drop-off times) will be shared with families that have chosen busing.
On Thursday, September 2, all classroom teachers will host Early Connection Meetings and families will be able to tour the building during our Open House. Please plan to drop off your child’s school supplies on September 2.
Wednesday, September 8 is the first day of kindergarten!
The purpose of the Early Connection Meetings on September 2 is for parents and the child to meet one-on-one with their homeroom teacher to get to know each other and to start building relationships. After this individualized meeting, families are invited to walk throughout the building (via a scavenger hunt) to meet support staff and to become familiar with the building. This daytime event allows for fewer guests to be in the building at one time and to take the time needed for your child to feel comfortable at Snail Lake. Again, families will receive directions on how to sign up for this Early Connection Meeting and Open House event when teacher information is shared in late August.
Between now and September 2, feel free to gather school supplies for the upcoming year. These supplies can be brought to school during your Early Connection Meeting. Feel free to also explore our school website to learn more about our school.
All of us at Snail Lake look forward to getting to know you and your family as we prepare for a wonderful year in kindergarten!
