Kindergarten


Welcome to the Kindergarten Team Page

Below please find information specific to your first year at Stargate as your student enters kindergarten.

Overview
  • The majority of students attend full day kindergarten. This is the only grade level at Stargate where some students attend 1/2 day school. All other grades are full day.
  • Parents are asked to sign up to bring snacks for the entire class to share. Please contact your teacher for schedules, and dietary restrictions.
  • Kindergarten students are kept in the kindergarten playground for recess and after school, this area is restricted to Kindergarten only.
  • 1/2 day students will be released at the front of the school, to the east of the front doors. Please park in the loop, please note this is the only time parking in the loop is allowed.
  • Full day students need to be physically signed out of school, at the end of the day, from the kindergarten playground.
  • Based on skill sets, students may have different teachers for literacy and math.
  • At the end of the year, students will participate in a formal kindergarten graduation ceremony, hosted by kindergarten teachers and parents.
