Welcome to Kindergarten at McDivitt School
This website is designed to help parents and teachers communicate between the home and school. Our names are Kayla Bonner, Jennifer Conticchio, Jessica Prachar, and Jessica Baum. We are going to be your child's teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. We are looking forward to a terrific year filled with many discoveries that will help develop a lifelong love for learning. Below is some information you may find useful.
Supplies: Please send your child with a backpack and their homework folder daily. We will have the folder organized for papers brought to and from school. The left side of the folder is the "To School" side where all homework, notes, test/quizzes, and any forms that need to be returned to school. One the right side, this is the "To Home" side where papers/ projects can be kept at home.
Paperwork: The first week of school there will be many papers and forms to be filled out and returned. Please read the information and return anything that has to be signed as soon as possible.
Homework: The purpose of homework is to reinforce skills learned at school. It helps to motivate children to have good study habits and to teach independence and responsibility. Children will be assigned 2 pages per evening Monday through Thursday reviewing Math and Language Arts. Please explain the directions and help your child to complete their homework neatly. Children should be able to complete their homework independently with little to no assistants. Homework will be checked daily. Now that your child is in Kindergarten, we encourage you and your child to read for at least 15 minutes per evening. Reading to and with your child is one of the best ways to help him or her succeed in school.
Change in Dismissal Plans: Any changes to your child's usual transportation must be indicated through a note sent with your child or a phone call to the office.
Thank you! =)
