2017-2018 Kindergarten Information
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Welcome to the Leffingwell Family!!! You are about to embark on an exciting journey – your child’s education! We are so excited that you have chosen to begin that journey here at Leffingwell.
In order to help with the transition to kindergarten, we have planned a variety of events for parents and students. You are invited to Meet the Principal & School Tour on March 15th at 9:00am for a school and campus overview. On April 18th from 2:30 – 3:00pm, we will be holding a Kindergarten Preview Day. Incoming kindergartners and their parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. This is a terrific opportunity to meet our fantastic team of dedicated kindergarten teachers, participate in a story/craft time, and familiarize your future student with our school setting.
We will also host a Lunch at Leffingwell during the summer on August 4th from 12:00 – 1:00pm. Incoming kindergartners and their parents are welcome to eat lunch at Leffingwell (bring your own sack lunch), participate in a story time with Dr. Blackwell, and learn the playground rules. In addition, we warmly invite you to attend our Family Fun Night on April 21st and Open House on May 24th to get a feel for the Leffingwell environment. Please also keep in mind that during the registration process you will be asked to sign up for kindergarten testing to help with our classroom placements and that an optional new student orientation will be taking place in August along with our Bring Your Own Dinner & Family Recess event.
I invite you to visit us online (www.leffingwellschool.com), Like Us on facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram to receive lots of current information about our school. You will find information that can help prepare your child for school, as well as other kindergarten and school-wide information. Remember, you are the best gift you can give your child! You are your child's most important teacher! Spend time with your child every day! The elementary years go quickly, but they are among the most important and fundamental years of your child’s life.
Great things are happening at Leffingwell Elementary School! We encourage you to get involved by joining our PTA, volunteering at school activities, and taking an active role in your child's education. Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can be of any assistance. We are here to help you and, most importantly, to help your child be successful!
