Kindergarten Orientation day- Friday, June 3, 2022

Hi everyone,

It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary School with a reminder that our Kindergarten Transition Day is this Friday. If your last name begins with A-L we will see you at our 9:00am session. If your last name starts with M-Z we will see you at 12:00pm. The 9:00am session will end with a bus ride around School St. The 12:00pm session will begin with the bus ride.

When you arrive at the school for both sessions, you will be greeted in the front lobby where both you and your child will be given a nametag. Children will receive a colour which will indicate in which classroom they are to go to for the kindergarten experience. The teacher your child has on Friday does not necessarily indicate the teacher they will have in the fall.

Parents and guardians will also be given a coloured dot, and while your children are in the classroom, you will rotate between 3 separate 15 minutes sessions. One is with a K teacher, one is with an SLP and one with me.  After adults attend these sessions, you will have time to sit and chat with other K parents and guardians, or go and get a coffee and perhaps some well-deserved quiet time before picking up your child.

If you have not brought in all of your documentation yet, please try and bring it with you on Friday and Mrs. Sheppard will be able to take care of you. We are looking forward to seeing you and your child on Friday!​

Hi everyone,

It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary School. We are very excited to welcome our new kindergarten students who will be starting school in the fall of 2022 for a Transition to Kindergarten session on Friday, June 3rd.  There will be two sessions that day.  Our first session will be from 9:00-11:30am and the second session will be from 12:00-2:30 pm. Students with last names beginning with A-L will attend from 9:00-11:30am. Students whose last names begin with M-Z will attend from 12:00-2:30pm. Please RSVP your attendance to the school at 832-6022 by Friday, May 20th.

The kindergarten transition session will include information for both parent/guardians and children. Parents/guardians will attend 3 rotational parent sessions. One will be led by Susan Pope from Talk with Me, one will be led by me, Mrs. Jardine, on general Leatherbarrow information, and one will be led by the kindergarten teachers on developing children’s fine motor skills.

During this time, your child will be in a kindergarten class doing activities similar to what would be done during a typical kindergarten day.  This will include a small provided snack, a bus ride, and an outdoor time so please dress your child accordingly. If your child has any allergies, please inform us. 

We look forward to meeting our new Leatherbarrow students!  See you on June 3!
