What is Kindergarten Roundup?
The transition to kindergarten can be intimidating for children and parents alike. Kindergarten Roundup is designed to foster positive relationships between children and teachers, parents and teachers, and parents and administrators. Further, children have the opportunity to meet and get to know some of their classmates and the school building before the start of kindergarten. It is a wonderful way to ease into the transition and alleviate stress for both parents and children.
At SIES, our Kindergarten Roundup will be offered on 4 different dates from 8 am to 12 pm: July 10th, July 11th, August 7th, and August 8th. All rising Kindergarten students are encouraged to register for one of these dates. Please only select ONE for the number attending on the signup....you are only registering your child. This will keep our counts accurate. Please also indicate your child's name when signing up.
During these sessions, students will interact with other children in fun "Western themed" activities and stations. They will rotate through the Kindergarten classrooms and have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with what Kindergarten is all about! Additionally, Kindergarten teachers will be working with children one-on-one to complete brief Math and Reading assessments. These assessments will ensure that teachers are ready to meet the individual needs of ALL children, even on the first day of school!
While children are busy working and playing, all parents are invited to attend an orientation session with administration to learn more about SIES. Parents will receive a copy of the family handbook, learn some important procedures, and have an opportunity to join our parent groups. The parent orientation will not last past 9:15 am, so you will be able to leave and return to pick up your child at 12 pm. This also allows parents the opportunity to experience the carpool line!
