Kindergarten “Get to Know You”

As the kindergarten teachers prepare to start the year, they like to set up “GETTING TO KNOW YOU” appointments for  incoming kindergarteners and their parents.  This is a chance for your child to get to meet the 3 kindergarten teachers in a 1:1 setting, for the teachers to get to know your child a bit before school starts and for you to fill out some important information for the teachers about your child.

The teachers will be having these 30 minute appointments during the first 10 days of school. If you are the parent of a new kindergartner, and have not yet set up an appointment, click here to see available times.
