The 2014-2015 school year is almost here!
The first day of school for all kindergarten through fifth grade students is Wednesday, August 27, 2014!
Although our school had indicated in a letter this past spring of a staggered 3 day start for Kindergarten students this will not be the case this year and all full day kindergarten students will begin their school year experience on the first day of school at the regular scheduled time of 9:00 am. Bus lists will be provided in the assignment letters, along with your child's teacher name and room number, (that will be mailed home on 8/15/14) so you may be prepared as to which bus your child will get on that morning. A name tag sticker will also be provided in this envelope for your child to wear on their first day. If your usual routine will be to drop your child off in the mornings, you may do so at the back of school. Many Makefield staff members will be at our back entrance to greet our students and take them to their classrooms. All kindergarten students are asked to bring a packed lunch for the first day of school.
At 2:00 pm all kindergarten parents are invited to a Kindergarten Orientation that will be held in your child's classroom. At 2:45 the Makefield PTO will host a "Treats and Tissues" time for all the kindergarten students and parents on the playground.
At the end of the day parents may take their child home or for students whose parents are not present or choose not to take their child home they can ride their bus home at the end of the day.
Please mark your calendar for the Kindergarten Back to School Night that will be held on Tuesday, September 9th beginning at 7:00 pm. More information will be sent home the first few days of school.
Our "Meet and Greet" Open House will be held on Tuesday, August 26th from 10:30 - 11:30 am. Everyone is invited to come and briefly meet their teacher and visit their classroom during this time.
Our School Store will be open during our Open House time too!
Also, for our 3rd through 5th graders, our homework assignment books will be sold for $3.00 each. These are a part of your school supply list.
A reminder that there is no school on Monday, September 1st in observance of Labor day!
