Staggered Entry

At the beginning of the school year, students come to school in small groups. The teacher welcomes the children into the program and gently introduces them to the Kindergarten environment. The children are given time to become acquainted with each other and with classroom activities and materials. Your child’s staggered entry time is noted in the Welcome letter below. This letter was also emailed to you along with additional class info on June 28.
