Dear Kindergarten Parents:
We realize that preparing for kindergarten is exciting for you and your child! We, too, are eager to be part of your child's life at this very important time. We will work hand in hand with you to make this a wonderful year.
As your child gets ready for kindergarten, here are a few things that would help: writing his/her name (capital letter at beginning of word, rest lower case); using scissors; naming some letters in the alphabet; counting objects to ten (10); naming numbers to ten (10).
Highland has three All Day Kindergarten teachers. Mrs. Pat Ide, Ms. Mary Dominis, and Ms. Melissa Perez.
We would like you to know some important information. Closed-toed shoes are safest at school. Back packs large enough to hold 9X12 paper (please, no wheels, for safety) are a great help in getting information to parents each evening. Your children should dress comfortably, and remember we sometimes we do messy things, so keep that in mind! No other supplies are needed.
When school starts this August, Kindergarten will be from 8:25 - 2:55 on Mon., Tue., Thurs., and Fri. On Wed. we dismiss with the rest of the school at 2:25. Before school each day, your child may play on the kindergarten playground (south side of the school) under supervision at 8:05. Teachers will pick them up on the playground. After school, all kindergarten children are outside, in front of the office, where their teachers will supervise them.
We look forward to meeting you!
Pat Ide, Mary Dominis, and Melissa Perez
