Parent / family workshop

(July 6, 2021) On the first day of the program, we invite parents and guardians to join us for a Kindergarten Readiness Workshop from 8:30am – 11:30am. During this time, you will receive helpful hints and suggestions to help you with preparing your child for Kindergarten. You will also have the opportunity to meet other school staff, as well as meet other Kindergarten families. In addition, we will be giving away Family Literacy Kits full of fun activities for you to use with your child at home.

Concluding event

The last day of the program, we ask that you join your child for a special family literacy event and graduation ceremony from 8:30am -11:30am. This will include literacy activities for you to participate in with your child, as well as additional games and activities to take home. Immediately after the Family Literacy Event will be a ceremony where your child will receive a graduation certificate along with a brand-new backpack full of school supplies! We certainly hope that you can join us for these special activities.
