Welcome to Warwick! My name is Andrea Parks and I will be your child's Kindergarten teacher this school year. If you are new to Warwick, Welcome! If you are a returning parent, Welcome Back. This school year is sure to be one filled with excitement both socially and academically. As a team, both parents and myself, we work very closely to help your child have a fabulous first year of school.
I am so happy that you are going to be in my Kindergarten class this school year. We will have lots of fun working and learning together, as we begin our journey as life-long learners.
When you come to school on Monday, August 30, 2021 please remember to wear the name tag which you will receive at our
Orientation. Dates and information will follow. If you are unable to attend the Orientation, please pick up a name tag from the office at your convenience.
Please ask mom or dad to fill the name tag out for you. Please make sure all the information on your name tag, including your bus number and bus stop, is accurate. Please refer to the “Name Tag Directions” (posted on this teacher website) so you know what is required on your name tag. These name tags will help make the first few days of school run smoothly.
Also, please bring a schoolbag with you each day so you can carry your important papers home. Make sure your name is clearly marked on your schoolbag. Often students have the same schoolbag, and we want the right schoolbag to go home with the right student!
On the first day of school you will receive a red folder with your name on it. We get lots of mail in school, and a folder will help you take the information home safely to your parents. Please have your mom or dad write your name in your jacket and all your other belongings throughout the year. Please purchase a soft, clear pencil case in which to keep all your school
supplies. Inside please put several sharpened pencils, two black dry erase markers and a dry erase eraser (socks work well!) Any other supplies will be given to the students at school. Please make sure your belongings are labeled with your name.
Finally, you will need a clearly marked headset (headphones) to use with the iPads. For health reasons, it is best for each student to bring their own set inside a labeled plastic bag, and they will be returned at the end of the school year. Please write your name on the front of the plastic bag.
I have been very busy setting up our classroom for the new school year. I hope you will be able to attend our Warwick Kindergarten Orientation and meet some of the other students who will be in your class. More information regarding the Kindergarten Orientation will be sent home directly from our school office.
I am very excited about getting to know each of you and your special families. Please enjoy the rest of your summer. I look forward to meeting all of you very soon!
What a fun year we will have together!
Welcome to Warwick!
