We are all very excited to begin the school year with your children. Despite the late start, Kindergarten students will go through a gradual entry process during the first week and a half of school. The classes are divided into two groups, Group A and Group B, in order for a smaller number of students to attend at a time. Please refer to the email sent to you in July regarding your child’s placement and grouping.
Parents are asked to attend the first day with their child in order to sign up for a parent teacher interview, scheduled during the first week after student sessions. This interview is a time, approximately 20 minutes in length, for you to share information about your child with their new teacher and for the teacher to talk about the Kindergarten program.
Also, please return the UBC survey that was handed out during the Welcome to Kindergarten event, to your classroom teacher. Your child’s teacher will be using this information to help with their transition into Kindergarten. If you have misplaced your copy of this survey, please ask your teacher for another.
Below is the gradual entry schedule with the new dates. Times will remain as per the original schedule.
Monday, Sept. 22 Group A 8:55 am – 10:00 am
