Connect to Kindergarten
Dear Beach Kindergarten Parents and Caregivers,
This year, we are excited to be participating in our district-wide Ramp Up to K-1! The Ramp Up will allow
1- all Kindergarten students to participate in a small-group “warm-up” day prior to the first day of Kindergarten and
2- all Kindergarten families to have a one-on-one connection with their teacher prior to the first day of Kindergarten.
Kindergarten “warm-up” days will be scheduled on either September 3rd or 7th and the first full day of Kindergarten for all students will be September 8th. Our school office will be in touch with each family starting the week of August 16 to assign you to a specific “warm-up” day and to schedule a time slot for your one-on-one family connection.
I’m sure you’re wondering about teacher names and assignments! We’ll be sending out the names of new staff and our teaching teams very soon, and specific teacher assignments will be shared school-wide at our Beach Back to School Connect on August 30*). However, in order to schedule K and 1st grade families for 1:1 connections and to schedule students for their “warm-up” days, we will likely be finalizing and sharing Kindergarten and 1st grade assignments earlier. We will share further details on that as soon as possible. For now, I wanted to provide at least this much information.
Lisa Hawking, Beach Principal
*At this point, this event is scheduled for 4:30 pm, in person, masks required.
