Jump Start at Queen Anne Elementary
Greetings family members of incoming QAE Kindergarteners!
We look forward to having your child be part of Queen Anne Elementary! Please mark your calendars for August 20-24th, 9am-12pm for Kindergarten Jump Start!
2018 Jump Start Info from the Kindergarten Team
On behalf of the kindergarten team, I want to say how excited we are to get to know your children! Hopefully, we will be able to meet most of them at Jumpstart. If you are unable to come, please reply to this email and just tell me a few things you think we need to know about your kiddo. If your plans have changed and you are no longer coming to QAE, please reply to this email and to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know ASAP!
What you can expect for Jump Start Aug 20-24th:
Some other things you might be wondering:
Class placements: After Jump Start, the Kindergarten team will assign students to classrooms based on their needs and personalities. These placements will be available for back to school night. Your child's teacher will schedule a family meeting during the first week of school. Remember, kindergarteners don't start until the following Monday, September 10th.
Supplies: Your child only needs to bring a backpack and a lunchbox (if they are bringing lunch from home). The teachers will buy supplies in bulk, and payment information will be sent home on the first day of school.
Enjoy your last weeks of summer, and we'll see you soon. Thanks again!
Rachel Marks, Jen Dickens and Priyanka Jayanthi
More about Jump Start
Jump Start is a free, district-wide week-long experience for Kindergartners to learn about school. Children will become familiar with their new school building, staff, typical school day activities and practices. Their parents/guardians will be able to meet with the school principal and ask questions about school. Teachers start to build relationships with students and observe their skills and strengths.
