Welcome To Kindergarten


Dear Kindergarten Families of 2020!  

We look forward to meeting and connecting with you soon!  It is very disappointing to all of us that our circumstances this spring prevent us from scheduling school visits in May and June in preparation for your child's start of school in the fall.  Although we might not have the opportunity to physically meet and connect, please know that we are thinking of your child and you as family and are preparing for learning in the September.  

The Ministry of Education has not yet announced the details of what school start up will look like for this upcoming school year  We will continue to keep you informed by way of email and our school website. Some families are contemplating delaying the start of Kindergarten or are inquiring about home schooling.  Our guidance to you is to remain enrolled in Kindergarten with us and in the fall we will work together to plan a school transition when we have more information.   

If you have not already dropped by the school to pick up a "Welcome to Kindergarten" home learning bag, we encourage you to use the link available HERE to schedule a convenient time to pick one up.   Our teachers have put together a welcome bag of supplies to build curiosity about school and to engage your child in creative learning opportunities at home.  

Finally, our teachers and new Principal have prepared some information about Kindergarten to help you and your child prepare for the fall. Please see the information attached below.  If you are yet to register your child for Kindergarten 2020/21, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible please.  Registration information can be accessed HERE.

Wishing you all a safe and healthy summer,

Shellie Maloff | Principal,
Brent Kennedy Elementary School
