2018-2019 Kindergarten Orientation

Dear Parents/Guardians of 2018/19 Kindergarten Students:

We would like to invite you to come to a Sneak Peek at Kindergarten of Valley Manor School on Thursday, May 10th at 2:00 pm OR at 4:00 pm.  Please email vms@spiritsd.ca the time that best suits you and your child to attend.  The purpose of the orientation is to meet you, the parents, and your child, as well as, to share the Kindergarten program information with you.  It will give your child a chance to get familiar with the school and to meet people in the school.

If you are unable to make it to the orientation, we ask that you still fill in the attached paperwork and return it to us by Friday, May 11th.  If you do not have access to a computer, hard copies will be available in the office.

Kindergarten classes will be full days Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday with alternating Fridays.  You will receive a calendar for the full year so you know which Fridays your child will attend.  You will receive this along with the Kindergarten Handbook on orientation day (these will be available on our website after May 10th 2018).  Please note classes for Kindergarten students will begin mid-September as teachers will do home visits and staggered starts during the first two weeks of school.

Please complete the enclosed kindergarten outing form, medical condition form (if applicable).  Also, if you have not already done so please provide us with a copy of your child’s birth certificate. Return these forms to the school at your earliest convenience or at the Kindergarten Orientation.

We have also enclosed a Martensville Urban School Bus Request form.  Please check on the Prairie Spirit website (https://www.spiritsd.ca/buses/) under the Information tab to see if your street address qualifies for this service.  Generally, bus service is provided only to students who live more than one kilometer from the school.  If you have any questions about the bussing service, please contact the bus garage at 306-374-2496.  Please ensure these forms are returned to us by May 11th, 2018 so they can be processed by the conveyance department.

Please email Dawn or Chelsea at vms@spiritsd.ca to confirm your attendance at the orientation.

We look forward to meeting you!
