The back to school countdown has begun!!  I hope that everyone is having a great summer and is excited for the new school year.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year with all my Kindergarten students.  A reminder of the Kindergarten Open House on Tuesday, September 4.  The Morning class is invited to drop in from 10:00 am to 11:00 am and the Afternoon class may visit from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.  The Open house is an opportunity for the children to visit the classroom with their families, meet their classmates and myself.  The students can also find their cubbies, their hooks, see old friends and meet new classmates.  All the Seniors will be attending school on Wednesday, September 5.  The Juniors will begin on the date noted on their placement letter.
The only item that students need to begin school is a backpack.  Please ensure that the backpack is large enough to hold a library book, school work which will be sent home and perhaps a water bottle.  Backpacks should be labelled with your child's name.  Provide opportunities for your child to practise opening, closing, and putting materials in and out of his/her backpack.  Independence is an extremely important part of Kindergarten.  
Please enjoy the last two weeks of summer vacation and I am looking forward to seeing everyone soon.
