Parents and students come at 9 am for Orientation, which begins at the sanctuary. The parents and student(s) will then be dismissed to meet at the child’s classroom where the teacher will conduct a classroom orientation. Parents will return to the sanctuary while the students stay in the classroom to have a snack and play on the playground for Toddlers, Mrs. Fallt, Mrs. McGowan and Mrs. Mack’s classes, and the Gym for Mrs. Haun, Mrs. Cain and the Kindergarten classes. This provides a soft start, easing into the first day of school.

The Preschool Director will go over the preschool handbook in the sanctuary. Both returning parents and new parents are required to attend, as new state regulations will be covered along with new and updated policies and procedures. Preschool Orientation ends around 11 am, parents or guardians will go and pick up their child(ren) from the classroom. This is not a full day or the first day of school.  A parent or guardian is required to attend the entire orientation.  Your key card for the preschool front entrance will be issued on this day in a packet along with a printed school calendar, class roster, and other information about upcoming school events.
