Dear New Dragon Families,
Greetings! The first day of school (Thursday, August 29th at 8am, sharp!) is approaching fast, which means your magical year of kindergarden is about to begin here at Phoebe Hearst! By June, your child will be reading, writing, and thinking in ways you would not have imagined, and we are so excited to be on this educational journey with you. Between now and then, we’ll ask you to work hard, to give great effort, to be an excellent citizen, and to become a part of this special Phoebe community by participating in our activities and events – there are lots! Here is some important information about upcoming things to do in the next two months:
Kinder and New Family Ice Cream Social – Thursday, August 22nd at 5:30pm
Please join us in the kinder breezeway for our Ice Cream Social! Kick off the year with other kinder families – everyone will receive an orientation packet with crucial information for the year, an overview of afterschool enrichment classes for kinder, a dress code fashion show, and plenty of ice cream!
School Supplies List
Refer to this website for a list of supplies you’ll need for this upcoming school year. If you have any questions, be sure to contact us.
Kinder Meet and Greet
Your kinder teacher will reach out to you to schedule a kinder meet and greet towards the end of the month to get your student feeling comfortable in the classroom and out on the yard. The sessions will last 30 minutes and will get you up to speed on everything you’ll need to know for the first day of school and beyond.
Uniform Gear – Cotton Shoppe/Clothing Swap
Our local clothing partners, the Cotton Shoppe, will have their online store open for ordering on August 1st (there is a link to it on our home page) if you want to pick up some highly fashionable Phoebe logo gear that is uniform compliant! We also offer a PTO Clothing Swap (during the Kinder Ice Cream Social and after school each day during the first week of school) if you’d like gently used uniform gear in great condition for a very low cost!
Phoebe Hearst Email Blast
Sign up for my email blast (linked on our home page as well) to receive a digital copy of our monthly newsletter and regular communications about happenings around the school. Along with evening phone messages and our Facebook page, it’s our primary method for getting the word out!
