To All Day Kindergarten Parents


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 and learners for life!

            Enclosed with this letter you will find a schedule for our Kindergarten Open House/Orientation that will be held on the following date: Friday, August 24, 2018 from 9:30 – 11:00 am at Sarah Dyer Barnes. 

            Below is a schedule for that morning; please arrive on time so that you do not miss your assigned informational sessions in the cafeteria and the meet and greet with our Kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Pavao and Mrs. Babul (formerly Miss Pero) .
