INCOMING KINDERGARTEN PLAYDATES

In this brand-new program, West School will be welcoming its incoming Kindergartners with a series of playdates on the front playground. With the goal of acclimating the children and creating a feeling of community for our parents, the playdates will be an informal way to ease incoming Kindergartners into the new world of elementary school.

If you have an incoming Kindergartner, please join us on the following Fridays at 4pm on West's front playground:
May 1, May 29, June 12, and June 26.



Sunday, May 17, from 12-2 pm.

And please note it is now only for incoming kindergartners and their families.
