First Day Checklist


Your kinder’s first day of kindergarten is this Tuesday, August 28! How exciting!  I know this post is long, but it has lots of important information, so please take a few moments to read it thoroughly.

Reminders for Tuesday

**Send your kinder to school wearing the name tag that was in their blue daily folder. Those are for day 1 and day 2 of school. This will help us make sure every kinder gets to the correct classroom. 

**Your kinder’s “ME Bag” with 2 items in it to help us get to know a little something about them!  Be sure to write their name on the bag.

**Gym shoes if you haven’t brought them in yet. We need them on Thursday!

**A SMALL cuddle buddy (to stay in cubby at school) to use during rest time for a few weeks.  Please do not take blankets or buddy that will be needed at night.

**TWO snacks for your kinder.  We will take time to refuel in the morning and in the afternoon.

**A water bottle labeled with your kinder’s name.  We want them to stay hydrated.

**A lunch from home or hot lunch choice. Please help your kinder make a hot lunch choice if they are planning on ordering hot lunch. There are 2 hot lunch choices each day (blue or white). Here is the link to the August/September menu for lunch options.  If needed, check out the Hudsonville Food Service website for payment information and information about setting up a hot lunch account. If your kinder will be having home lunch but ordering milk, please attached a small note on the outside of their lunch box for the first few weeks of school. This helps me and them remember they would like milk.

**Any completed paperwork that you have. Please put this in your kinder’s blue folder.  I will deliver the papers to the correct places.

**If possible, make sure that your kinder eats a good, healthy breakfast.  I know that butterflies may be fluttering inside of some tummies, so do your best. 🙂

**Extra set of clothes if you are worried about your kinder having an accident or just in case.  Keep these clothes in their backpack for whenever they may need them.
