Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

We are excited about your child starting kindergarten at JKC and look forward to partnering with you to make this a special and successful year for your child.

Please note the important information below regarding the beginning of school.

 

If your child has not previously been screened, please call the school at 933-5835 between 8:00 and 2:00.  The secretary will schedule your child an appointment for the screening which will take place on August 15th or 16th.  (Students who attended JKC last year DO NOT need a new screening)

 

August 15, 16: screenings

The purpose of the screening is to identify student strengths in order to better meet your child’s individual needs.  Screenings take 10-15 minutes.  If you have not turned in all documents for registration, please bring them with you.

 

August 17:  class assignments

Only students with complete registration information will be assigned a teacher/classroom.
Rosters will be posted at the front entrance of JKC on the 17th after 7:00 a.m.

 

August 17:  parent information meetings

In an attempt to accommodate families and reduce traffic issues, there will be 2 informational meetings.  Please choose to attend either the 11:30-1:00 OR the 5:30-7:00 meeting. These meetings are for parents only and it is very important that you be present.  Students should not attend.  The first thirty minutes you will be meeting with the principal, Mrs. Shannon and assistant principal, Ms. Odom in the cafeteria.  The last hour you will go to your child’s classroom for a meeting with the teacher.  Cafeteria, bus and JKC’s Cane Academy after school program representatives will be available to provide information and assist you in signing up for these services.
