Kindergarten Letter and Schedule (1st four weeks)
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! The awesome Kindergarten Team: Mrs. Tan, Ms. Erickson and Mrs. Murphy, are excited to meet you and your student. Our kindergarteners have a unique schedule the first four weeks of school. For the Kindergarten Letter and starting and dismissal times:
Kindergarten families are invited to join Ms. Jezyk in the Library at 9:00am on the first day of school, August 17th. This will be a time to learn a little about the kindergarten program and the school. You are then invited to join the PTA in the Faculty Room for some refreshments and a chance to connect with other kindergarten families. All are welcome to wait in the Faculty Room until the kindergarten classes are dismissed at 10:20am.
