The kindergarten environment is carefully and thoughtfully arranged in order to engage the children. It is important that the classroom be a direct reflection of the children. In order to achieve this goal I would like to ask that you send in picture of your family that can be displayed in the classroom. I also encourage the children to bring in natural objects that can be displayed and studied. We will be looking closely at Nature for our first study.
During the month of September your child can bring an item from nature.
Over the next 2 months we will be getting to know each other and learning how we are all unique. We will be talking about how we all contribute to our classroom community.
During the month of September I will be letting the children get used to the routines of Kindergarten. I will not be having volunteers in the classroom. In October I will send home a note asking for volunteers. I will be needing volunteers for our upcoming Safety city field trip and our Halloween party.
Please send two snacks and a lunch daily. We recycle in Kindergarten. All left-over food items will be sent home. Please send nut free snacks and treats. Please send a water bottle everyday.
The Kindergarten children that are taking the bus should have their bus tag with their bus # and name attached to their backpack. During the first weeks of school I will be at the front door to greet the children. Once the children are comfortable with the routine they will be entering the school on their own. At the end of the school day I will be taking them out to the buses before the general population.
It is very important to inform the school if your child is not going to take the bus home. If I do not receive a note or a message from the office I will need to put your child on the bus. For those parents that are driving to school please do not park in front of the school. This area is designated for the school buses. Please come to the front doors of the school where I will be or bring your child directly to the classroom.
The Fultonvale School community has the opportunity to participate in a hot lunch program and a pizza day. Information will be sent home at a later date.
Make sure to send your child with a large backpack to accommodate large library books. Please label all shoes, boots and coats. We often have identical items.
Please do not send your child in flip flops, crocs or fancy shoes. It is important that they wear running shoes as we will be doing physical activities both inside and outside of the school. There are often accidents in Kindergarten. Please place a change of clothing: sweat pants, underwear, socks and a t-shirt in a labeled ziplock bag. The bag will be kept in your child's backpack.
Fultonvale School offers a milk program. You can buy individual milk tickets or a group of tickets from the office. The children can keep their tickets in their lunch boxes and the milk will be delivered daily to the classroom. Check the Fultonvale website for more information.
