Marlene has some information for you to read before school starts; please see attached PDF. You will find information about what to expect in the first weeks and months as your child enters Kindergarten. There is also information about what your child should (and should not) bring to school, plus a few other tips.

Marlene would like to invite you to a special Parent Orientation Evening.

Thursday August 17th  6:30 to 7:30 pm in Marlene’s Kindergarten room

This is a chance for you, the parents, to meet with Marlene (we kindly ask that children not come to this event). Marlene will answer questions you might have about how things flow in the Open Classroom, a bit about cooping and it’s also an opportunity for you to meet the other new parents.

We hope you can make it! Please RSVP by replying to this email so we know how many to expect. I’ve included returning families with incoming kindergarteners because I attended orientation for my second child entering Open so that I might introduce myself to new families and offer support and I felt it was nice for Marlene to have the support as well. There is no pressure for you to come, but you are invited.
