Welcome to Kindergarten!

Dear Kindergarten Families,

 We are excited to welcome you to Kindergarten! Students have wonderful year ahead of them! We are looking forward to exploring, learning, playing, and growing together throughout your first year at Hannah Senesh.

The official first day of school is Tuesday, September 4th! We will meet you in the school gym at 9:00 am.

Please bring a:

  • small labeled snack (kosher and nut-free),
  • labeled water bottle,
  • change of clothes (labeled, in a Ziploc bag),
  • jacket or sweatshirt for your child to keep in their cubby.

Because we are ending at 11:30 am on the first day, you don’t need to bring lunch. Starting Wednesday, September 5th, please send a packed lunch or make sure you have ordered lunch online.

We are responsible for the dismissal of your children and will be maintaining the bus and dismissal lists for your child’s class. Please send all communication regarding dismissal, bus and pick-up, directly to all four K teachers the day before. For last-minute and urgent changes, please send the communication by 12:00 pm on the day of in order to receive a confirmation email from the teachers. Teachers will be checking email at this time and creating the day’s final dismissal list. We appreciate your mindfulness, as teachers are working with the children in the afternoon and are unable to check for emails. Thanks for your help in creating smooth transitions!

Enjoy the last week of summer!
