Dear Future O’Dea Core Knowledge Kindergarten Families,
Congratulations! 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 this page…they are full of great information as well.
We understand that kindergarten may be a new experience for some of our families, so we like to offer a parent information night to provide time to answer any questions that you may have and to help you visualize what your child’s day will be like when they are with us. This information night will walk you through what it means to be an O’Dea owl, what our drop off and pick up procedures look like, lunchroom routines, classroom routines and an overview of our curriculum and standards as well. By the end of the session you will have a picture of your child’s school day as well as a connection to our school community
Please add the following dates/times to your calendars:
Event 1: Kindergarten Orientation Night
Date: Thursday, January 13, 2022

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.

We encourage you to attend both events, take a look at the 2021-2022 Welcome to Kindergarten Presentation and watch the Welcome to Kindergarten video 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!
