First Days of School

The First Day of School is Tuesday, August 26!
ALL Kinders will attend from 8:30AM - 12:00PM (NOON).
  • Assessments will take place in the afternoons during this week.
  • You may sign-up for these once you have received your child's classroom assignment.
  1. The assessments last about 30 minutes.
  2. Most kids enjoy having this personal session with their new teacher. This is not scary. It is a chance for the Classroom Teacher to get a little one-on-one time with your child in an effort to better determine areas of strength and areas that need focused effort. This assessment directly informs the instruction in the classroom.
  3. They may be asked to write, to count, to "read", to sort, etc.
