Incoming Kindergarten Parent Information Night—Week of May 21, 2018

Parents of incoming students are invited to attend a presentation by the kindergarten teachers, school nurse, PTO/PTA (Parent-Teacher Organization/Association) president, and school principal. You will learn about the school’s core values and culture, daily life in kindergarten classrooms, and how to get involved in the school’s PTO/PTA.  Nuts and bolts information about state-mandated screenings and immunizations will be shared as well, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions. 


Open House—Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 1pm-3pm

At this special event, you and your child will meet school staff, your child’s classmates, and their parents. If possible, please leave younger siblings at home to make this a special time for you and your kindergarten child.


Mandated Screenings—Week of June 4, 2018

All incoming kindergarteners participate in state-mandated assessments of visual, auditory, motor, and language skills; and of their vision and hearing functions. Children are screened in small groups by a classroom teacher or by another qualified staff member. The process only takes about twenty minutes, and most children really enjoy the experience.


Wheels on the Bus—Monday, June 11 and Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Led by Westwood’s School Resource Police Officer Brad Pindel, this information session gives students the chance to board a real school bus and learn about safe bus behavior.  No pre-registration is required. Parents and their kindergartners can choose to attend either an evening session on Monday, June 11 at 6:00pm at Downey School or a morning session on Tuesday, June 12 at 10:00am at Martha Jones School.
