Kindergarten Information

    “Short” List

    Change of Dismissal Plans:  If your child will be going home in a different way, please contact the front office.  This is for your child’s safety.  If something bubbles up during the day regarding your child’s dismissal, please call one of our wonderful secretaries in the front office at 314-854-6300 so that I can be made aware of the change.

    Backpack and Folder:  Your child’s backpack and folder are the closest things we have to a mailbox.  Please check your child’s folder and backpack on a nightly basis.   If you have notes, completed forms, or other information for us at school, please place it in the folder and mention to your child that there is mail to be delivered to the teacher.

    Lunch:  Your child is learning to sign-in as a “Lunch #1”, “Lunch #2”, "Lunch #3", or “Bringer” each morning.  The monthly lunch calendar can be found on the Meramec webpage.  If your child is buying, please review the choices before school so your child is ready to make a choice at school.  We have many helpful adults to guide them through their lunch-time routines.  

    Snack Calendar: 
    Please send a healthy nut-free snack daily in your child’s backpack-separate from the lunchbox. 

    Parent Volunteer:  We welcome parent volunteers throughout the school year in various ways.  We take time at the beginning of the school year to set up routines and get to know the children.  More information to come before volunteering begins!

    Quiet Time:  We will have a rest time daily.  Please send a favorite towel.    I’ll remind the children to take home their towels for washing every other week.

    Footwear: The PE teachers ask that children wear tennis shoes to the daily gym class.


    Temperature:   You may want to send an extra sweater or sweatshirt for your child (we can store it in your child’s cubby).  We have outdoor recess twice daily.  Please send your child with the appropriate outerwear when necessary.  It is also helpful to label outerwear with your child’s name.

    Staying in Touch:  Please e-mail or call whenever you (or your child) have a question or concern or you just want to check in.  I will retrieve e-mails and voicemail in the evening or early the next morning.
