Welcome Back to the 2015-2016 School Year!
*The First Day of School this year will be Thursday, August 20th, 2015!
*We are going to be hosting an OPEN HOUSE at the Elementary buildings on Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 starting at 4:30 p.m. and ending at 6:00 p.m. Please bring your child’s school supplies to the Open House to leave in your child’s classroom. This will alleviate your child having to carry all their supplies on the first day of school.
*The Class Lists will be posted at the schools on Friday, August 14th at 3:00 p.m.
* ATTENTION ALL KINDERGARTEN FAMILIES: The Kindergarten teachers will hold a brief orientation at the school building at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 18th. Open House will be held directly after their orientation so the students can see their classrooms and meet their teachers.
Kindergarten Students will have a different schedule to start the school year out. All Kindergarten students will need to have an appointment on either Thursday, August 20th or Friday, August 21st for the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment that is required by the state. The appointments will be scheduled in one hour blocks; your child will only come to school on ONE of those days at their SCHEDULED time. Families please be prepared to fill out forms for your child while they are completing the assessment. You may want to bring phone numbers for doctor’s, dentist, and family or friends that you will want to be listed as emergency contacts.
The Kindergarten Readiness Assessment is given to all students as a measurement of the student’s Social Foundations, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language and Literacy, and Physical Well-Being and Motor Development.
All Kindergarten students will be assigned to attend Kindergarten all day for a Phase-In Day on either Monday, August 24th or Tuesday, August 25th. The families will be notified by mail which day their child is to attend Kindergarten. Bussing will be available on those days to bring your child to school.
The First Official Day of Kindergarten will be on Wednesday, August 26th!
