Join us for Virtual Kindergarten Orientation
Kindergarten Orientation is an exciting time for your child to get a sneak peek of kindergarten and meet our amazing teachers. It’s also a time for you to learn more about our program and what you can expect in the year ahead. Like so many other things this past year, Kindergarten Orientation will look a little different than normal. We are getting creative to find fun ways to ensure you and your child have a warm welcome to school!
Please plan to engage with us in our first-ever Virtual Kindergarten Orientation. Here’s how you can connect:
February 18 & 19: Distribution Day
Please drop by the school to pick up a goodie bag with special gifts and activities for your kids, as well as information and paperwork for the grown-ups. Visit your school website for details.
Week of February 22: Kindergarten Preview for Kids!
Visit your school website during the week of February 22 to find a variety of fun, interactive videos for your kids to meet our teachers and get a taste of what they can expect in kindergarten. We’ll have a short video for each day of the week leading up to orientation. Kids will be able to see what a classroom looks like, create an art project, and even participate in a kindergarten dance party.
February 26: Virtual Kindergarten Orientation for Parents/Guardians
Parents/guardians are invited to join us for a live Zoom meeting to learn more about what they can expect in kindergarten, meet our staff, and ask questions. Visit your school website to see Zoom meeting times.
