Remember to fill out your forms online and bring them to school either over the summer or by Aug 30/31 (Meet the Teacher Day). If you have enrolled a new student, we need you tobring your child's original birth certificate over the summer tobe copied. All students need a school physical with up to date immunizations. Accomplishing these forms and details over the summer frees you from waiting in long lines on Orientation Day (Aug 30/31). If your pediatrician completes the physical form and places it in a sealed envelope, go ahead and open it- the first page parents MUST complete and sign.
Backpacks: Please make sure you purchase a Large Backpack, not the little ones and not with wheels. We have regular sized folders, art projects, show and tell, a change of clothes and perhaps a sweater for chilly days. We do not accept backpacks that are like suitcases or have wheels. These have proven to be a problem in the crowded hallways and attempts to hang them on the children's hooks. Be sure to label your child's backpack with his/her name.
Who's going to be my child's teacher?
You will receive an email this summer with your child's class list and teacher. It is vital that your email address is correct, as this is how you will connect with future classmates, to set up times to meet over the summer and make friends. It is also how your child's teacher will communicate with you. If you have changed email addresses since you registered in February, please contact us with an update. If you have not heard from us by August it is possible that you mistyped your email address in the rush of registration. Parents are not able to request certain teachers. We have a fully qualified staff, and make our class lists with many criteria considered.
You will receive an email with an attachment to enroll, if you desire, in the Kindergarten Enrichment Program. These classes are after school from 2-3 pm and will include choices such as Gymnastics, Spanish, Daisy Girl Scouts, Lego Club, Discover & Explore Science, TaeKwonDo, Art, Engineering, etc. Each class is offered one day per week, and continues for one semester. You can choose as many classes as you like. We offer different classes the next semester or continue those that are most popular. There is an additional fee for these enrichment classes. We can add these additional fees monthly to your tuition, or you may pay for them in lump sum. If we do not get enough students in a class, it will be cancelled.
Starting the second week of school, we offer a "lunch bunch" option for preschoolers to stay an additional hour for lunch and recess. The fee is $5.00 per day. Signing up will be online each month, beginning in Sept. Sept date is 7 am on Sept 1 for Sept lunch bunches between Sept 11-29.Sign up genius will be used on sign up day for the 4's program. Those in the 4 yr old program will be emailed a link on Fri, Sept 1 to sign up for lunch bunch. Any remaining spots after the 4's have signed up will be open for the 3's to come in to the office and sign up on the next day. We take a maximum of 16 students per day. Children provide all parts of their lunch including drinks, spoons and napkins. We do not heat up food or store food in the refrigerator for individual lunches. Payment must be made on the sign up day by 9 am for morning 4's students or 12:30pm for afternoon 4's students. Failure to pay by these times means that we will offer that spot to another person. There are no refunds if your child misses his/her lunch bunch day. If we have a weather closure we will offer you a voucher to be used at another lunch bunch day. Those in AM preschool have lunch bunch from 12-1 and those in PM preschool have lunch bunch from 11:30-12:30.
