Dear Registered Kindergarten Families,
It won’t be long before your child will be joining us at Sterling Morton for Kindergarten. We're pretty excited to welcome them in! As you plan out your summer, please be sure to note the following important dates that are coming up the end of August.
August 24th, 25th, and 26th: On a selected day, your child will meet with one of our Kindergarten teachers for approximately 30 minutes to complete Kindergarten screening activities. Please call the Sterling Morton office, on or after August 11th, at 440-257-5954, or follow this LINK to schedule a convenient day and time for your child’s screening. Once screening has ended, teacher assignments will be completed and revealed at Kindergarten Orientation
August 26th at 6:00 pm: Kindergarten Orientation will be held for students and parents in our gym. Children will spend a little time with their Kindergarten teacher, and parents will meet with me in the gym to learn about school procedures and what to expect during the first weeks of Kindergarten.
August 27th - September 1st: A “staggered start” to Kindergarten will allow the teacher to meet with half of the students on alternating days. Students will be assigned to either Group A or Group B, depending on their last name.
- 8/27 & 8/31: Group A (last name A-L) will attend all day
- 8/30 & 9/1: Group B (last name M-Z) will attend all day
- 9/2: All Kindergarten students attend school
In late July or early August, you will receive an email from Mentor Schools with a link to Infinite Campus. This email will contain directions and an activation code. From this link, you will be able to pay fees, add money to the lunch account (*free breakfast and lunch for all students for the 2021-22 school year), and look at your child’s bus assignment. Throughout the year, you will be able to see what your child purchased at lunch, review grades, missing homework, and view the report card. Please keep the username and password in a safe location.
Shortly, be on the lookout in the mail for a little Welcome Letter with kindergarten readiness work! 🥳
We truly look forward to having your child here at Sterling Morton! Our Kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Beck and Mrs. Stevenson, will work closely with you throughout the school year to create a positive and enriching learning experience for your child. In the meantime, please spend some time relaxing and reading with your child. Helping your child to view reading as a positive and comforting experience is a great way to prepare for school!
Jacqueline I. Sturm, Principal
