Parent information

Welcome to Miss Sharlene’s Kindergarten, 2018-2019

Important Information

Arrival-Students can begin to line up at the cones outside our classroom at 7:50am. Please stay with your child until Miss Karen or myself arrive. We will then lead the children into the classroom area. On rainy days, we will take the children into the classroom at 7:50am. Please have your child at school by 7:55 so learning can begin by 8:05.

Absences-If your child will be absent or is sick, please let me know as soon as possible via email.

Snack-Please send a small healthy snack with your child in a separate container from their lunch. We will usually eat snack after morning recess (9:25).

Lunch-Children start to eat lunch at 11:00am. Your child can bring lunch with them or you can leave it in their cubby by 10:45. School lunches may also be purchased and paid for directly through the Gecko Grill.

Birthdays-A child’s birthday is a very exciting event and we would like to celebrate it with you at school. Please e-mail or speak to me if you would like to have a small celebration at school. I will also try to touch bases with you a week prior to your child’s birthday. We usually have the celebration during morning snack time. (9:25) One cupcake, cookie or piece of cake is all that is needed. Please supply plates, forks, etc. if needed. No gifts or goodie bags should be handed out at school. Invitations for a home birthday party should be distributed outside of school time.

Dismissal-School ends at 3:00. Please wait outside building 5 (on the library side) if your child is being picked up. We will deliver them to you. For safety reasons, your child will NOT be dismissed until I see you or the designated adult. Bus children will be taken to the bus. Please notify me in advance if your child will go home with someone different (playdates, new ayi, etc.) or will not ride the bus. Also, please email Ms. Laurie Chen at if your child will NOT ride the bus. 

P.E. Class-Please make sure your child is wearing runners/sneakers on PE days.

Take home bags-Please check and return the take home bag everyday. Even if there is nothing inside, it is important that the children get into a routine of always taking it to school each day. If there is any paperwork that needs to be returned to school, please put it in the take home bag.

Communication of learning-I will post general class learning along with photos of activities on our KD blog. This blog is accessed within our S.I.S. website.

Each child will also have their own private ‘Seesaw’ blog post. This will be a portfolio of their learning. Both your child and I will be posting on this blog. I will send information on how to sign up once it is started. 

Contacting Teachers-For urgent matters, please contact Ms. Anna at the Mountainside Office. She will get the message to me. If you have a specific question or concern regarding your child, the best form of communication with me is email. If you have a question that pertains to the entire class, feel free to use our class WeChat group once it is started.
