Dr. Wagoner's Welcome Letter for Kinder Families

  • Dear Rising West Side Kindergarten Families,

    In just a few short weeks, your child will begin Kindergarten at West Side!  You are likely feeling bittersweet about the start of your child’s elementary school years.  It is my hope your excitement grows as you watch your child exchange his/her swimsuit for a new backpack.  Thank you for entrusting our staff with this important first year of school and through all of your child’s elementary school years. 

    To help our planning for the upcoming school year, please complete your child’s registration at the following link if you have not already done so – Marietta City Schools Registration Gateway.  If you experience difficulty with online registration please reach out to our enrollment clerk, Harriette Price (hprice@marietta-city.k12.ga.us).  Mrs. Price will be available to assist you beginning July 12th.  It is very important to complete your child’s registration, in order to stay informed about the transition events described below. 

    In order to support your child’s transition to Kindergarten, we are offering three events before the start of the school year.  We encourage you to make arrangements for your child to attend these events. 

    • Kindergarten Screener – Please sign your child up for a 20 minute skills check on July 21st or July 22nd. Your child will work individually with one of our Kindergarten teachers to preview Kindergarten skills.  This individual time will give our teachers an opportunity to learn your child before the year begins.  Parents/Guardians should plan to stay for the duration of your child’s appointment time.  If your child is unable to attend one of the appointment times his/her teacher will complete the Kindergarten Skills Check during the first week of school.  Please reserve your child’s appointment time by July 9th at the following link – Kindergarten Screener
