Kindergarten and TK Announcement

Good Afternoon Kindergarten and TK parents!

We are looking forward to meeting your kindergarten student. We would like to remind you that the kindergarten and TK programs are on a minimum day schedule from August 15th - August 30th. The hours run from 8:10 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. Starting September 3rd, the full day program will begin. We understand the first two weeks’ schedule could be an inconvenience to you.

Please reserve your spot no later than Tuesday, August 13th, 2019. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfdNyvRITovcaLG0LK__QdKB92oe8XZDgaf58rWIq_WskK98g/viewform?usp=sf_link

Once you have updated all sections - Starting on August 14th, you may log in to your parent portal account to find out who your child's teacher is going to be.

Kindergarten/ TK Round Up

Kindergarten and TK Parents,

We would like to invite you to attend our kindergarten and TK Meet & Greet where your child will have the opportunity to meet his/her teacher and become familiar with their classroom.

Our Meet & Greet will take place on Wednesday, August 14th, 2019, between 1-3 p.m. You should have received a letter from us that gave you your child's classroom assignment as well as a campus map.
