The transition to kindergarten marks the start of your child’s journey through the public school system – one that we are certain many of you cannot believe that you are already embarking upon! The school will be hosting several upcoming events to introduce you to faculty members, instructional programs and our facilities. Please note the following events on your calendar:

                 * Informal Coffee – Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 9:30 A.M.

                   * Evening Information Session – Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 6:30 P.M.

* Kindergarten Screening – March 20, 21, 23, 24 & 27

The morning coffee held on March 9th will be an informal opportunity for first time parents to meet with school staff and ask any questions about our kindergarten program. We will introduce several key faculty members at that time –the Early Childhood Coordinator, Tanya Kalantari, the School Guidance Counselor, Paula Springer, the School Nurse, Tracy Fernald, and our Special Education Program Administrator, Peggy Regan – and take you on a tour of the building. Our conversations will be geared towards parents who are sending their children to Davis for the first time, but all incoming parents are welcome to attend.
