Kindergarten Assessment Days/ Parent Information Session
July 24th and 25th
WHES is committed to providing an exceptional education for every student. We want to ensure classrooms are well balanced and students have a strong start to the school year. For this reason, teachers take the time to assess each learner’s strengths and needs prior to the first day of school. Incoming kindergarten students need to attend a 1-hour assessment with kindergarten teachers on July 24th or 25th. During this assessment, parents/guardians will meet separately with members of the kindergarten and office team to learn about kindergarten programming at WHES. This info session will provide details regarding expectations, curriculum, and additional details about the kindergarten program. Please sign up for one of the following dates/times using the following link. www.SignUpGenius.com/go/409094DA4AE29A7FB6-20172018

First Day of School- Kindergarten
August 1st 8:30-11:00
The first day of school for kindergarten students at WHES is August 1st. On July 31st, after all testing is complete and classes are finalized, you will receive an email letting you know the name of your child’s teacher. On August 1st, we ask that parents and students meet the teachers at 8:30 on the front lawn by the gym door where we will begin the day. Please plan to stay with your child until approximately 11:00. We will begin by putting away all supplies and go over a few procedures and routines. Students will also create a craft to remember their first day of school! Families will then move to the cafeteria to enjoy lunch together and get a feel for what this experience will be like for students each day. All parents and students will be dismissed for the day after lunchtime.
