Dear Parent(s),

Welcome to Kindergarten! This is a dynamic year of growth and learning. It is filled with fun, adventure, and challenges. Your child may come home exhausted from all the thinking done during our school day. There is much to learn and every minute will count.

Due to the importance of class attendance, I ask that you ensure your child comes to school every day, unless ill, and arrives on time. Your child needs to come to school prepared to learn. A good night’s sleep followed by a healthy breakfast is essential for strong bodies and effective learning. You may notice your child beginning to challenge bedtime limits…don’t give in! Kindergarten students need to be in bed early each night.

You can also help your child by making sure he/she has all the essential items needed for school and for home. At home your child will need a quiet, well lit and uncluttered place to work. Your child will also need: pencils, erasers, crayons, scissors and glue to complete homework assignments. When coming to school your child will need to bring: a healthy snack, a lunch, a sweater or jacket for cooler days, and a backpack to keep everything in. Your child is also responsible to return important paperwork, homework assignments and permission slips to school when required. Please check your child’s red homework folder every night even Friday night!

We have a fantastic group of students in our class and I am looking forward to a terrific year ahead. With your help, we can make this a wonderful year!

Sincerely,

Miss Kelly
