Kindergarten Orientation 8/29/23

We are pleased to offer a new and exciting Kindergarten Orientation this year!  In order to allow for our very talented teachers to participate fully in professional development and to best meet the developmental needs of our students, we will be hosting Kindergarten Orientation Day on Tuesday, August 29th.  Kindergarten students and up to 2 adult guests will be invited to visit their classroom and meet their teacher at an assigned time (invitations will be coming directly from your child’s home school).  The visit will last for approximately one hour with some time for questions.  This orientation will help your child to feel successful as they go to kindergarten independently on Wednesday, August 30th.  

We are looking forward to a successful school year and can’t wait to meet you!
Please feel free to reach out with any questions.  Take care and enjoy the summer!
