I know that with the Shelter at Home in effect it is easy to not pay attention to the specific days of the month. The days seem to get lumped together as the other day or that day or this day, etc. It is important to remember to enroll any children at home who are five years old on or before September 1, 2020 for Kindergarten. Children must be five years old on or before December 2, 2020 to be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten. Transitional Kindergarten screenings for students who are Kindergarten age and would benefit from "the gift of time" will take place during the month of May 2020. Please be sure to visit PVPUSD Enrollment on the district website (www.pvpusd.net).
Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten programs are engaging and exciting. As you begin to talk about school, be sure to establish schedules. Each evening should include bath, book, and bed for these young children. Reading, asking questions, and talking about anything and everything will help with school readiness. Your children can help problem solve when shopping, planning meals, and helping with the responsibilities at home. Teachers always appreciate young children learning to think and do tasks by themselves. PTA, TK/K staff, and I will be scheduling our TK/K Parent meeting just as soon as we are permitted to return to campus.
The teachers and I look forward to welcoming our youngest learners to Montemalaga!
