Kindergarten Parent Information Session

posted Aug 9, 2018, 12:26 PM by Laura Prymak

Hi Winterpock Kindergarten Parents! We are busy preparing to welcome your children, our newest Wolfpack members! While reflecting on the format of Kindergarten Orientation, our Kindergarten teachers decided to try something new this year!

In case you didn't know, Kindergarten Orientation is on Thursday, August 30th from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Typically, this is a very busy time where you rush in to meet the teacher, drop off supplies, and fill out a bunch of paperwork! Our goal is to help Kindergarten Orientation run a little smoother and allow the focus of this time to be on exploring the classroom and meeting your child's teacher. Also, we recognize that many of you have general and specific questions during this time…and that you often feel like you just don't have enough time to talk to the teacher.

To help make this process smoother for everyone, we are offering a Kindergarten Parent Information Session on Monday, August 27th at 6:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. During this time, our eight Kindergarten teachers will present a slide presentation that walks you through the day of a Kindergarten student. They will share logistical information about arrival, lunch, the schedule, transportation, communication, dismissal, and many other unique routines that are related to Kindergarten. Our PTA will share about volunteering, favor fees, and other pertinent information. You will be able to pick up your “Beginning of the Year” packet of forms during this session allowing you to fill these forms out prior to Kindergarten Orientation that Thursday! There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions as well!

We recommend that only parents attend this particular session. (You will not find out your child’s specific teacher until the following evening on August 28th via a recorded phone message.)

Again, this a general information session for all Kindergarten parents to learn the logistics of Winterpock! We hope you will join us!

Fondly,

Karen Dubiel, Principal

Summer Reading By Grade Level

posted Jul 13, 2018, 9:46 AM by Laura Prymak   [ updated Jul 13, 2018, 9:51 AM ]

It is so important to continue to help your child with his or her academic skills over the summer. 

Reading is one important way your child can strengthen his or her skills during the summer months. Because reading is so important, we would like students rising to grades 2-5 to read a summer reading book during the summer months. When the children return to school in September, teachers will discuss the summer reading books with the students. The books will be the focus for reading and writing activities in the classroom during the first week of school. 

All of the books are available at a Chesterfield County Public Library, or you may choose to purchase the books at Barnes and Noble or another book store. Purchasing the book is an option, not a requirement.

Please see the attached documents for each grade level books.

We want all our students to be successful and reading over the summer is one way to help them get the new year off to a good start. If you have any questions, please contact the school. Thank you for your support!

Happy Reading,

Reading Specialist

We will need for you to park in the middle of the loop instead of along the curb. This will allow buses to enter the loop at the end of the day. NO cars can enter or exit the bus loop while buses are actively loading and unloading students. Thanks for your patience as we work through this together!

You will earn rewards for our school each time you swipe your Kroger Plus Card! That’s it! It will cost you nothing, and Kroger will support our school!
