Dear Edgar Road Families!

I can’t believe summer is winding down and it is time to start thinking about beginning the 2019-2020 school year! I hope that you are enjoying your summer so far! There is still some time until school begins, but I wanted to send a quick “check in” email to inform you of some events and updates.

Our “Meet the Teacher” and PTO “Back to School Celebration” is on Thursday, August 8th. Meet the Teacher will be from 3:00-3:30 PM with the Back To School Celebration immediately following on the South Playground until 5:00 PM. This is a time to bring in your school supplies then head to the playground to connect with school resources like the Counselor, Nurse, PTO, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and more. While you check out the resources, the children can enjoy a treat and the Bubble Bus!

Jump Start Conferences with the classroom teacher will the week of August 26th. Sign up information will given out in the Paw Print.

Here's the Edgar Road supply list in case you are going to start “Back to School” shopping!

Incoming Kindergarten Families:
There are a couple more Play Dates on the playground before school starts. This is a perfect opportunity to meet some of the staff and other families! We hope to see you on Thursday, July 11th and Tuesday, July 30th from 5:00-6:30 PM.

Kindergarten Information Night will be on Wednesday, August 7th at 6:00 PM. This is a parents only event. We will go over a lot of information regarding the first week of school (and beyond) so we encourage you to attend.

Last but not least, class assignment letters will be mailed the week of July 22nd which will allow everyone to meet their classmates at the last playground playdate on July 30th. Keep an eye on your mailbox!

In order to increase safety at dismissal, we have made some changes to our dismissal procedures. We will be sending an email specific to the changes soon. Please review the changes carefully before the beginning of school.

The first day of school is on Tuesday, August 13th. The building opens at 8:10, students enter their classrooms at 8:20 with instruction beginning at 8:30 AM. Students dismiss at 3:10 to go home. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
