New for next year Kindergarten Soft Placement @ Boulder Hill
We are so excited to announce our "Soft Placement" for next year's kindergarteners. All our incoming kindergarteners will enter as members of the Kindergarten Class, and not of specific classroom teachers. Our kindergarten Bobcats will have a few days to get oriented to the school, teachers, procedures, lunches, specials, and more. Teachers and other staff will have the opportunity to know more about each of our kindergarteners as well. Then, each student will be assigned a teacher, and a special welcoming day will be held in students' NEW CLASSES on the 5th day of school.
Please be on the look out for more information. You can also join us at the Meet me in the Community opportunity on July 12 from 11AM - 1:00PM.
