    A Kindergarten Reception will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 for parents of those children who will enter Kindergarten in the fall. While the parents are learning about a child’s transition into school, their children will participate in separate activities including a short bus ride, story time in the library, a building tour, a visit to the playground and a snack in the cafeteria. Families whose last name begins with the letters "A" through "L" should attend the reception from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Another reception will be held later in the day from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. for those families whose last name begins with the letters "M" through "Z". Parents are encouraged to attend this event with their child. Anyone who has not yet registered their child should call Chris or Jenn at (845) 256-4350 to make an appointment.
