Welcome to Kindergarten!
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy’s Kindergarten! We are looking forward to teaching your children this year. Their days begin at 7:50 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. If, however, the whole school has an early dismissal, the Kindergarten will dismiss at 12:15 p.m. Each day, the children will have snack at 10:00 a.m. followed by morning recess. Please be sure to pack a snack, a drink, and a napkin in their lunch box.
The Kindergartners may purchase Hot Lunch on the full days. Sometime in August before the start of school, the Hot Lunch Committee will contact you via email with instructions on how to sign up and order Hot Lunch for your child. Please label ALL of your child’s clothing, as well as shoes, belts, book bag, and lunch box. The Mercy sweatshirts will need labels sewn into them because the tags are black and you won’t be able to write your name on them.
During the first week of school, you will receive a schedule that will tell you which days your child will have PE, Library, Music, Art and Computers. On PE days, the children will be allowed to wear their sneakers to school. The Kindergartners do not wear a PE uniform. They will wear their regular school uniform. It is recommended the girls wear shorts under their jumpers.
See you soon!!
Ms. Greene, Mrs. Syski, and Ms. Veith
