WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN !!
**Please visit the Virtual Backpack on Pine Road Website (pictured above) often for important papers from Pine Road!!**
On August 29th, we will have our Kindergarten Orientation. The orientation this year will be in the evening, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Thursday, August 29th. You should have received information about this from the district already, but just in case, here is a link to the information: https://www.lmtsd.org/cms/lib/PA01000427/Centricity/Domain/365/K%20Orientation%20-%20Save%20The%20Date.pdf
On the actual first day of school, September 3, kindergarten parents will escort their child to their classroom. Kindergarten students are scheduled to arrive at 9:45 AM, 45 minutes after the upper grade levels. Please do not send your child to school on the bus on the first day. Instead, please drive or walk your child to school and walk with your child to the classroom. (Be prepared to show photo identification to our greeter when arriving at the building. This is for the safety of the children!)
Once in the classroom, I will greet you and your child and there will be approximately 15 minutes for you to help your child get settled into the classroom. At 10:00 AM you will leave and the students and I will spend the remainder of the school day settling into our new routines, which includes lunch and snack, so please pack these for the first day (or have a plan to buy lunch and then just pack a snack). When you leave the classroom, you are welcome to hang around for coffee and cookies in the cafeteria so you can get to know some other kindergarten parents!
PLEASE NOTE: Half of the class will come to school on Tuesday, September 3rd at 9:45 AM. (The following day those children have NO school). The other half of the class will not have school on Tuesday but will come on Wednesday, September 4th at 9:45 AM. This is so the kindergarten teachers can give the students a little more personal attention on the first day. On these first days the students will go home with the rest of the students in the school, at regular dismissal time. ALL kindergarten students will report to school for full, regular days, starting at regular time (9:00 AM) on Thursday, September 5th and Friday, September 6th. You will receive a letter in the mail from the school office telling you if your child is scheduled to come on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Wish List: Extra Supplies
- Pack of Markers
- Pack of Magic Eraser
*Stay tuned for the date of our first pretzel day!
Please send your pretzel money into school in a bag that is big enough to hold your pretzel order. Gallon-sized Ziploc bags are fine; snack and sandwich-sized bags are too small. PLEASE label your child’s bag with their name, classroom number, and the number of pretzels you would like. This makes the process run more smoothly and helps ensure everyone receives what they want. THANK YOU!
You may also prepay for pretzels. Please check the Virtual Backpack for more info.
