Valentines and Friendship Cards… Students are invited to bring in Valentines or friendship cards for their classmates that will be distributed on Thursday, February 14th. Students that wish to participate should bring a card for every student in their class, but we ask that no food, candy or treats are sent in to be shared. Teachers will be sharing class lists and more specific grade level instructions for Valentines and Friendship Cards this week! Thank you!

2019-2020 Kindergarteners… If you have a child who will be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2019, he or she is eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year. You are invited and encouraged to attend a Kindergarten Preview Night on April 24, 2019 at 6:00PM. At this meeting, we will provide a detailed look at what the kindergarten experience will offer. You will also be provided with more details related to registration requirements and deadlines. This night is designed for parents/guardians AND incoming kindergarten students only. We ask that siblings do not attend this event.

We need the Kindergarten Information Sheet Welch completed prior to orientation so that we can begin planning kindergarten enrollment for the upcoming school year. This information will be used to form a kindergarten mailing list. Once on the mailing list, additional information will be mailed to eligible kindergarten parents. Information regarding registration will be available after April.

If you have any neighbors who do not presently have school-aged children, but will have an incoming kindergartner, please give them a copy of this form or ask them to call our office at 630.428.7200 so that we can send them this information. I look forward to meeting you at the Kindergarten Preview Night.

Please mark your calendars!
