Attention Incoming Kindergartners
This year we will be holding 'Kindergarten Camp" for all incoming Slingerlands kindergarten students. On June 5th from 3:45 – 4:30 p.m. parents and children are invited to Slingerlands to experience a slice of kindergarten. The children will spend 45 minutes in a class with a kindergarten teacher to get a feel for what school will be like. During that time, the parent orientation will be held in the gymnasium. A letter went home last week with the details of our new adventure. Please call the school if you have any questions. Parent Orientation on May 2nd was canceled.
