Dear Kindergarten Families,

I am sure that you and your child are eagerly anticipating the start of the school year.  Just a few things to remember and note:

(1)  Below shows the gradual entry schedule for the first week of school:

Tuesday, Sept. 4 :  Group A 9:00 am - 10:00 am (Do not bring a snack)

                                Group B 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (Do not bring a snack)

Wednes., Sept. 5:  Group A only 9:00 am - 12:00 pm ( Bring  a snack)

Thurs., Sept. 6:     Group B only 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Bring a snack)

Friday, Sept. 7:      All students 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Bring a snack)

(2)  One of the goals of Kindergarten is to build independence and resilience in your children.  In order to start achieving this goal we are asking that you remember to practise, "Saying goodbye" to your child. 

Starting on the first day of school, parents/family members will be asked to say goodbye to their child at the Kindergarten door and to not enter the classroom while school is in session.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me ( or Ms. Baldissera (
