Welcome to Pre-K!
Ms. Jo and I are very excited to welcome you to our class. We have been busy getting everything ready to start the year. I am sure that your family has been busy too! This is a note to let you know a little bit about our program, as well as, some important information about each day.
At school, your child will learn in a variety of ways, including large and small group time, hands-on manipulative and play. I will introduce beginning skills in math, language arts, science, social studies, and art throughout the year. In addition, your child will take part in Physical Education, Science, Music, Library and Art.
Doors open at 8:00a.m. School begins @ 8:25.. If your child does not ride a bus, drop offs at the Kindergarten building will only be open from 8:00am to 8:25am. Any time before or after those times you will need to drop them off at the front office (before 8:00am or after 8:25am) they will go to the cafeteria where they will find an assistant waiting there to escort your child to our classroom. The doors to our building will remain locked all day. If you need to come in, you will have to visit the front office and obtain a visitor pass.
We will eat breakfast and lunch together as a class every day. Your child may bring a meal from home at any time.
At 3:20 p.m. a Pre-K teacher or an assistant will walk your child to their bus. If your child is a pick up you will need to go to the Gym at 3:10pm. If at any time your child’s routine changes (ex: different bus/pick-up procedure), you must let the office know by note or telephone. Call no later than 2:00 p.m.
We are here to learn and have fun. However, when we become sick we must stay home. School policy states that if a child is running a fever, has diarrhea, or is vomiting, he/she should not be sent to school. This applies even if he/she has had medicine before school.
I hope your child has a wonderful experience this year. If at any time you would like to visit with me, you may leave a message with the school at 253-4413 and I will get back to you. Also, please look for my memos that I will send home each month for important information. Together we can help your child have an excellent year!
