Dear All Day Kindergarten Families,
Welcome to our exciting All Day Kindergarten at Sarah Dyer Barnes Elementary School! For those of you who have a child entering the school system, specifically kindergarten for the first time, get ready! You will be amazed at the amount of learning that takes place.
I am very excited about our school’s strong kindergarten team. The school has a great combination of talented teachers with qualities that complement and bring out the best in each other. All the teachers on our faculty enjoy working together, sharing ideas, and helping students become readers, mathematicians, cooperative thinkers and learners for life!
This letter serves as your invitation to our Kindergarten Open House/Orientation that will be held on the following date: Thursday, August 24, 2017 from 9:30 – 11:00 am at Sarah Dyer Barnes.
Below is a schedule for that morning; please arrive on time so that you and your child are able to experience each mini- informational session that is scheduled for that day. **Please remember this informational session is not a time for a parent conference with the teachers; there will be plenty of time to meet, discuss and review your child’s academic and social profile once the year begins. Thank you.
