There are 5 Kindergarten classrooms. Each classroom will have a paraprofessional for ½ the academic day.
It is SO important that your child be at school each day on time! We do A LOT academically, socially, and behaviorally in Kindergarten. We ask that all doctor’s appointments be scheduled after school dismissal.
We look forward to helping your child get use to the school setting. As you are probably aware, expectations for behavior at school might be different from expectations outside of school. Please make sure that you look at your child’s Daily Behavior Sheet to see how their day went. Your child’s teacher will comment both on positive behavior and if something needs to be worked on at home.
