Frequently asked questions

When does school start?

Students should be in class working by 8:10 a.m. If your student arrives before 8 a.m., he/she will head down to the gym to read quietly. Students start entering class and getting to work at 8 a.m. The tardy bell rings at 8:11 a.m.

When does school end?

Kindergarten gets dismissed first. Bus riders and daycare students head to the cafeteria at 3:15 and car riders and walkers go to the porch at 3:15. If you are picking your child up PLEASE be there no later than 3:20.

Will you have nap time?

No.

Will you have snack time?

Yes. It will be a community snack. Parents will be asked to send in healthy snacks like goldfish, crackers, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, etc. As long as snacks are sent in, we will have snack to give.

Will there be homework?

Yes. Your child will memorize sight words. He/she will read daily and fill in a reading log. There will also be math homework that reinforces each lesson. There will be a few at-home projects. There will be homework due on Fridays that help reinforce the letter of the week, as well as sentence writing.

Can I help?

Yes! In both kinder classes, we need parents to help with sight words. You will receive information at the beginning of the school year about how you can help. Our school needs help with crossing guards, fundraising, and in many other ways. We couldn't do what we do without our awesome parents.
