This section contains special information regarding the beginning of the year.  A list of supplies and special tips for a good transition from home to school.

Before school

Before entering kindergarten, your child should be taught the following concepts:
  • to say his/her full name -many children also learn their phone number and address
  • to cross at street corners and never to run out on the street
  • to obey safety traffic lights, school safety patrols, and to Stop, Look, and Listen before crossing a street
  • to do directly to and from school
  • to refuse to accompany strangers
  • to remember his/her bus numbers in and out

During school

Here a few tips to help your child have a great day at school:

  • encourage your child to look forward to school as a friendly place
  • ensure that your child has had enough sleep (10-12 hours each night are recommended)
  • provide your child with an adequate breakfast and lunch
  • to obey safety traffic lights, school safety patrols, and to Stop, Look, and Listen before crossing a street
  • emphasize nutrition as you prepare school snacks with your child
  • discourage sugar, fat and salt snacks - children react rapidly to such foods (fruits, vegetables sticks, or a small glass of juice make good snacks)
  • label all your child’s belongings
  • provide a bag for carrying home books, painting, and papers
  • show an interest and appreciation in your child’s work and let him/her know you think it is important. Provide a place to display his/her work
  • help your child arrive at school on time

It is not necessary for the child to enter into kindergarten with printing skills, however, some children show a desire to learn to print letters and numbers. If your child is interested encourage him/her to form his letters correctly on unlined paper. It is much better to practice the correct form. Teach your child to print their name using a capital letter only for the first letter in his/her name. The remaining letters of his/her name should be written in lower case letters.

Report Cards

It is my sincere hope to meet with each and everyone of the parents of the students in my class at Meet the Teacher night in September. I feel that this first meeting is an important opportunity for us to begin to build the kind of working relationship that is so important to the first school experience of your child.

There will be four report cards this year - three formal plus one interim.
