We are so excited for you to join us this year!  Kindergarten is such an amazing opportunity for your little ones to start their academic journey in such a warm, loving, and nurturing environment.  We’re reaching out with information about the start of our year to help make this transition super smooth.

At O’Dea we get to know each student and then create classrooms to ensure we have balanced classrooms.  In early August you will receive an email to sign up for a time to come meet with our three amazing kinder teachers on August 17 and 18.  Our teachers will work together to get to know your child socially and academically.  After meeting all the students, the teachers will work together to create balanced classrooms that will support each student’s learning needs.

On Friday August 18th we will have a kindergarten only popsicle party @ 3:00 where your students will learn who their teacher is.  They can also drop off their school supplies in their classrooms at this time. 

After classroom assignments at the popsicle party, we will have a staggered start for the students.  This staggered start allows students to transition from summer to school in smaller groups so that they can receive more individualized attention.  On Monday, August 21, one-half of the students in each classroom will come to school.  The other half will attend on Tuesday, August 22.  Then Wednesday, August 23 will be the first full day for all kindergarten students.  Parents will be notified on Friday August 18 about their child’s start day.  

We hope that you have so much fun with your children this summer.  We can’t wait to meet them in August!
