Starting Kindergarten can feel like a big step, so incoming Chesnut students (and their parents/guardians) get a little extra attention to help the transition be smooth and stress-free. Here's how it works:
- Upon entering the school on Wednesday, August 5th you will be directed through a number of stations. Please make sure you have two proofs of residency from within the last 30 days (if you had not registered this summer, please bring a completed registration pack with ...you).
- After you visit all the stations, you and your child will then proceed to the kindergarten hallway where the kindergarten teachers will greet you and your child. Your child will then interact with a staff member in a nearby classroom while you fill out some paperwork.
-It is important to note that this screening is not a test of IQ or school readiness. The information will simply be used to create balanced and diverse classrooms.
- On Friday, August 7th at from 3:00-4:00 PM, you and your Kindergarten child are invited back to the school for a “Kindergarten Meet & Greet” where you will meet your child’s teacher in the classroom, interact with other children in the class, and drop off school supplies.
-After the Meet & Greet, your family is invited to “Kick Off to Kindergarten,” an informal get-together at Yogli Mogli (Orchard Park/Kroger Shopping Center, 2090 Dunwoody Club Dr.) to meet new kindergarten friends and classmates while enjoying delicious frozen yogurt!
While parents need to bring their kindergarten students on Wednesday to open house, students from any grade are invited to come and meet their teachers if the rosters are posted!
