Kindergarten Tips For a Great Beginning

  • Please dress your child for busy, active (and sometimes messy) indoor and outdoor play each day. Tennis shoes are recommended everyday.
  • All children will need a large, zippered backpack. Please make sure your child's backpack is large enough to hold the three-ring binders that we will be sending back and forth weekly.
  • Please send two small snacks to school everyday. We have a water fountain in the classroom so water bottles are not necessary, but feel free to send one if you wish.
