Welcome to Kindergarten at Irving!

Welcome Irving Families!

With the switch to online registration this year we will be meeting many of our new students for the first time at our Meet the Teacher event on Thursday, August 30th from 4:45-5:30 p.m. Our fabulous Irving PTO will also be hosting a BBQ that evening with food, drinks, and games for everyone to enjoy!

A few tips for the first day of school…

*We will have a sign-in table outside the kindergarten classrooms to make sure each child gets a name tag and a photo of their first day. We will also confirm your child’s transportation plan for the end of the school day before you leave.

*Please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes and shoes. The weather may be hot and we will be out on the playground several times during the day.

*We will have lunch in the cafeteria – exciting! The menu is posted online here and paper copies are available in the front office.

*Kindergarten lines up along the wall across from Jesse’s Memorial Garden by the flag pole at the end of the school day. We teach the children to “let our families come to us” so that children do not become separated from our group in the rush at the end of the day. We will give your child a High 5 to let them know that we see you and they are ready to go home. Don’t worry if you are running late or need extra time to find a parking spot! We typically wait at our line-up space until 2:35 and then go to the front office to keep cool (or dry, or warm, depending on the season!)

*The After School Club, which operates daycare and preschool on the Irving campus, is offering a childcare option for Smart Start. For more information and to contact them directly: Smart Start Irving 2017

We are so very excited to meet all of you and are looking forward to a fantastic school year!
