Dear Kindergarten Families,
Welcome to Love Elementary School!
We are Love’s Kindergarten Team, if we haven’t met Amanda Brenc, Catherine Gloria, and Kimberley Hare. We will be your child’s Kindergarten Teachers. We are very excited about this school year and look forward to a year full of learning and many new experiences for us all.
Here are some important things you will need to know for the beginning of school:

CLASSROOM ASSIGNMENTS: Please be aware that for the first 20 days of school, changes may be necessary to your child’s classroom placement to comply with state and district guidelines. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

KINDERGARTEN SCHEDULE: Monday, 8/14, to Friday, 9/1, school begins at 8:20 and ends at 12:10. We will meet your child in the Kindergarten yard. Starting Tuesday, 9/5, school begins at 8:20 and ends at 2:00 except on Wednesdays, conferences, and the last 3 days of school, then dismissal is at 12:10.

KINDERGARTEN BASELINE ASSESSMENT: Beginning on Tuesday, 8/15 we will be assessing your child’s knowledge of pre-readiness skills such as: color & shape recognition, personal information such as: name, age, birth date, address, & phone number, fine motor skills such as: writing their name, number skills such as: counting and recognizing numbers to 20, shape recognition and reading readiness skills such as: reciting and recognizing the alphabet, matching letters and sounds, matching & recognizing upper & lower case letters and rhyming.

The first week we will have each class stay 1 day until 2:00. During this time, they will socialize with other Kindergartners and work with the teachers.

This baseline assessment allows us to know where every student is at the beginning of the year and ensures that the classes are as balanced as they can be. We also use the assessments to show growth from the beginning of the year to the end.


Please bring a backpack large enough to fit a folder (8 ½ x11), snack, lunch bag/box, a reusable water bottle, and a change of clothes. Please label all personal belongings with your child’s name to minimize lost articles.
Clothing worn by your child should be comfortable. Please label jackets, sweaters, and coats. For safety purposes, do not allow your child to wear open-toed shoes (flip-flops or sandals). Please provide a change of clothing in case of a “bathroom accident”, spills, or a wet slide. Place the change of clothes in a labeled plastic bag and put it in your child’s backpack, where it will stay until needed.

Your child will have a snack recess every morning at 9:30-9:50, 9:40-10:00, or
Please provide a healthy snack labeled in a separate small container (not a lunch box) or zip lock bag. We are a nut-free school. Healthy snacks include yogurt, cheese, fruit, veggies, saltines, graham crackers, seaweed, and goldfish crackers. Please do not send chips, candy, gum, jello, cookies, pudding, or other sugary snacks; they will be sent home.
