Kindergarten Orientation 2021

Kindergarten Orientation is an exciting time for your child to get a sneak peek of kindergarten and meet our amazing teachers. It’s also a time for you to learn more about our program and what you can expect in the year ahead. Like so many other things this past year, Kindergarten Orientation will look a little different than normal. We are getting creative to find fun ways to ensure you and your child have a warm welcome to school!

Please plan to engage with us in our first-ever Virtual Kindergarten Orientation. Here’s how you can connect: 

Distribution Day: February 18 & 19


Please drop by the school to pick up a goodie bag with special gifts and activities for your kids, as well as information and paperwork for the grown-ups.

  • February 18: From 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

  • February 19: From 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Week of February 22: Kindergarten Preview for Kids!

Visit our website during the week of February 22 to find a variety of fun, interactive videos for your kids to meet our teachers and get a taste of what they can expect in kindergarten. We’ll have a short video for each day of the week leading up to orientation. Kids will be able to see what a classroom looks like, create an art project, and even participate in a kindergarten dance party. 

Virtual Kindergarten Orientation for Parents/Guardians: February 25-26


Parents/guardians are invited to join us for a live Zoom meeting to learn more about what they can expect in kindergarten, meet our staff, and ask questions. We have two opportunities for you to join. If you can’t make the AM session please feel free to join our PM session. Zoom meetings will be taking place on:
