Charlton Height’s Kindergarten School Supply List

Dear Kindergarten Families,

We hope you are having a great summer.  Before you know it, it will be time for kindergarten to begin!  We are as excited about the upcoming year as you are!

Kindergarten Orientation will be held on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 9:20 a.m.  You and your child will be able to drop off their supplies and visit the classroom.  At 9:40 a.m., parents will attend an informational meeting with Mr. Sinnenberg and a PTA representative to learn more about Charlton Heights while your child participates in fun activities. The morning will conclude with you riding the bus with your child. After the bus ride, you are welcome to play on the Magic Maze with your child until noon.

The first full day of school for kindergarten is Friday, Sept. 6, 2019.

Please bring the following items with you on:
