Welcome to Kindergarten at Yennadon Elementary! We are looking forward to officially meeting you. There is no school for new Kindergarten students on September 8th and September 9th. We are beginning our gradual entry with intake meetings on September 10th and September 11th that involve both you and your child. This gives the Kindergarten Team an opportunity to meet the children, to get a sense of their learning styles, and to finalize creating balanced classes. Please ensure that your child is present for these intake meetings, as this is a great opportunity to meet in a low stress environment. Please also sign up for your child’s intake meeting on the parent portal as soon as possible.
Once all the intake meetings are complete, we will finalize our class lists. You will know your child’s teacher by the end of the day on Friday, September 11th. At that time, we will send your child’s class placement information and gradual entry schedule for the following week on the parent portal. Please watch for this important message.
New Kindergarten students will begin attending school on Mon., September 14th. Gradual entry promotes a safe and healthy start to full time attendance and allows children to gradually understand routines, make friends, connect with teachers, and feel comfortable at school. It also provides parents with comfort and reassurance that their child’s adjustment needs have been well considered.
