Kindergarten Orientation 2016

James is starting Kindergarten on Tuesday! So far, we've had two visits to his new school. Last week we got to walk around the building together. We were actually supposed to drop off supplies then too, but we hadn't been able to find the supply list until that day. Tuesday we had Kindergarten Orientation. The kids went to their classroom with PTO volunteers and rode the school bus around town. They also very briefly met their teacher.

The adults sat in an auditorium that was 500 degrees, heard about the school, and briefly saw the Kindergarten teachers. We also got advice regarding packing snacks and lunches, sending kids on the bus, picking up from school, and not freaking out as a parent so that your kids maintain their cool. At the end we got to meet some of the other parents in our class.

They were playing, "Forever Young," by Rod Stewart.
