Kindergarten Families NEW to CSE

Dear Kindergarten Parents and Guardians,

We are thrilled to have your Kindergartener joining Clear Sky beginning this fall. We have a special transition process in place for our Kindergarten students called Balanced Beginnings. The first days of school will be staggered, with small groups of students coming, rather than the entire class. This eases the transition into Kindergarten and allows teachers and students to build positive relationships, introduce the new environment and routines, and collect informal data as they begin their year with students. 

This means that Kindergarten students will begin full time learning August 12th. Kindergarten students will be assigned a half day to come in and transition into their classrooms with a small group of students on either August 9th or 10th. August 11th will serve as a planning day for Kindergarten teachers so they can use the information they collect when they meet with transition groups and plan for targeted and individualized instruction in the first weeks of school.

Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you soon to let you know which of the 4 sessions your child will be attending.

August 9 Monday - 9:30am-12:00pm or 1:00-3:30pm

August 10 Tuesday - 9:30am-12:00pm or 1:00-3:30pm

We are looking forward to meeting your Kindergartener and making his or her transition a smooth and joyful one!
