Wagon Wheel Round Up- Class Lists posted
You may view the kindergarten class lists at the Round Up on Wednesday, September 3rd from 12:00 Noon -1:00 p.m. The class lists will also be posted on the handball courts and on the front office windows.
First day of Kindergarten -Parent and Student Orientation
Our first day is Thursday, September 4th. This year, we are asking parents to attend the first day with their child in their assigned classroom. The first 10 minutes will be directed by your child’s teacher. For the remaining time, you will find a list of activities that you can participate in with your child.
On the First Day of School, Thursday, September 4th, kindergarten students will attend school as follows:
Early Birds: 7:45 – 8:58 a.m.
Late Birds: 9:15 – 10:28 a.m.
To foster independence, we strongly encourage all of our Kindergarten students to use a tote bag or messenger bag rather than a backpack. Easy access without the difficulty of opening and closing zippers leads to student success and greater confidence. If you wish to show your school spirit Wagon Wheel tote bags are available to purchase to support our Music program.
Thank you to all of the families who have contributed to the fundraising project to reinstate an official Kindergarten Music program. If your family is able to contribute $50.00 per kindergarten student, and has not done so as of yet, we welcome your contribution. Checks can be made payable to Wagon Wheel PTA. A tax deductible receipt will be issued at a later date. Our students will participate in a 30 minute music lesson taught by a highly qualified credentialed music teacher each week. Kindergarteners will use their voices, hands, feet and classroom instruments to explore rhythm and song. We dance and sing and play while learning about fast and slow, high and low, and loud and soft, as well as how music touches our lives and hearts through the seasons! All instructors follow the California State Framework for Kindergarten Music.
Our regular daily schedule (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) is as follows:
Early Birds: 7:45 – 11:38 a.m.
Late Birds: 9:15 – 1:08 p.m.
We observe our Academic Collaboration for Excellence (ACE) schedule every Wednesday. The kindergarten schedule on ACE day is as follows:
Early Birds and Late Birds: 7:45 – 11:38 a.m. (All students come together on Wednesdays)
