First Day of School

  • The first day of school is a 1/2 day.
  • Parents do not attend school with Kinders on the first day.
  • Please make sure your child is wearing his/her bus tag.  Review your child’s bus color with them often.  I also recommend that you color the back of your child’s bus tag the color of his/her bus.
  • We do not eat lunch on the first day because it is a half day, but we do practice going into the lunch room and have a special cookie/milk snack!
  • The recess supervisors will meet with our class to review rules and procedures on the playground.  It is going to be a fun filled day!
