Doors open at 5:30 for Pizza!

Meet & Greet
Meet & Greet is an informal time for you and your child to drop off your school supplies, find your classroom, meet your teacher and maybe even a few of your classmates. You'll be able to view bus routes/schedules, sign up for car rider, meet your PTA and tour the school.
We will be screening kindergarteners for the upcoming school year. Children will be evaluated in a range of developmental tasks from self-care skills, to your child’s ability to communicate and listen. Teachers will also assess your child’s ability to recognize numbers, letters, shapes and colors. The purpose of a kindergarten screening is not to test how much your child knows, so much as to see if your child is developmentally ready to start kindergarten and if a child will need any additional support in the classroom. The screening lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes and parents will wait in the office while teachers meet with your child.
