Welcome Future O’Dea Core Knowledge Kindergarten Families!
We are very excited that you will be joining O’Dea as part of our kindergarten community next year! It is such an amazing time for our children and our families, and we work very hard to ensure that it is simply an amazing start to your child’s education in Poudre School District. Please be sure to check out all the links on “Kindergarten Registration” on O'Dea's website under K-5 Registration on the menu bar …the links on the page are full of great information about kindergarten in PSD and what you'll need to register at O'Dea.
We understand that kindergarten may be a new experience for some of our families, so we created a 2021-2022 Welcome to Kindergarten presentation to provide you with information about your child’s school day as well as a connection to our school community. There are also tours of O'Dea for new incoming kindergarten families still available. Both the 2021-2022 Welcome to Kindergarten presentation and the 2021-2022 Kindergarten Tour Signup can be found on the menu drop down box. We are hoping to have more tours later in the Spring as well!
Please add the following dates /times to your calendars:
Event 1: Kindergarten Orientation Night
This evening focuses on parent information and kindergarten flow. Due to our COVID protocols we cannot host this event in our building and will be hosting a live virtual Microsoft Teams meeting. It is not exactly the same as being in person…yet…it will simply have to do for now. We DO look forward to being able to meet you in person when the restrictions for in person meetings are lifted.
Date: Wednesday, January 6th
Time: 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Location: Live Virtual Microsoft Teams meeting link: Kindergarten Orientation Night
Event 2: Kindergarten Picnic Lunch and Before School Back to School Night (please bring your students)
This event focuses on bringing children and families together, having time for children to visit their classrooms and begin to get to know their teacher. We understand that kindergarten families have many questions about what school looks like at O’Dea so we always host this event prior to the school year starting to ensure that you have all the information you need for a successful first day.
Date: August (date to be determined)
Time: (to be determined)
Location: O’Dea Core Knowledge – 312 Princeton Road
We encourage you to attend both events so that you have a meaningful and memorable transition to kindergarten. We would love to have you in our building as soon as possible and also want to ensure that you are supported in a positive and effective manner. Have a wonderful spring! We will see you this summer!
