KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION AND PARENT INFORMATION NIGHT
For Next Year’s Kindergarten Class
We will be having a Kindergarten Registration and Parent Information Night again this year for students entering Kindergarten in the Fall. Parents are asked to come to Park Ave. that night to turn in their registration materials and get to know Park Ave. a little. There will be a short presentation by the Kindergarten teachers to talk about how the day works and the “Tools of the Mind” curriculum. Other departments and specialties of the school will be there as well including the nurse, PTO, After-School program, food service, speech and language pathologists and the principal. It is a great way to start to get to know the school.
This year we are adding an additional opportunity for families (including the incoming Kindergarteners) to visit the school to see the classrooms, check out the cafeteria and look around the school.
Please share the following information with any parent you know who has a child who will by 5 years old by August 31, 2014:
- Month of March
o – Call PAE to get your name on our mailing list – 508-943-4554
- April 1
o We will be sending Registration Packets home to all families with 5 years olds either on the Town’s Census or on our mailing list.
- April 9
o 6:30 – 7:30 – Open House for Families with incoming Kindergarteners – very informal. This is a chance to walk around with the incoming student to see what the school is like.
- April 16
o 6:30 – 7:30 – Kindergarten Registration and Parent Information Night
o Bring in the completed Registration Packet or let us help you fill it out that night.
o Park Ave. teachers and staff will give short presentations to help parents start learning about the school.
- TBD – Kindergarten Screening
o We are not sure if Kindergarten Screening will be in June or in August. This depends on the budget for next year and is still up in the air.
We are working with a Massachusetts based foundation called the Message of Hope Foundation to collect rainbow loom bracelets made by our kids. We will then mail them to the foundation, and they will distribute them to pediatric patients at top rated Children's Hospitals throughout the country! These bracelets, made with love by our students, will help to inspire and bring a smile to the face of many kids in need of HOPE! Kids will be making bracelets at home and bringing them into school.
We are accepting donations throughout the rest of the school year, and will keep a tally of how many donations we receive. Our first shipment of donations will be mailed out at the end of January, and then at the end of each month after that! If you are a looming family and want to donate as well, that'd be great!!
