Pre-K and Kinder Round Up

We are so excited that it is the time of year where we begin planning for new Wildcats to join us next year. Due to continued restrictions around visitors on campus, PK and Kindergarten Round Up will be handled a little differently this year. Each grade has put together an informational packet for parents linked below.

Parents are encouraged to read the packet thoroughly, and then if there are lingering questions for teachers you can submit the questions in the following ways:

PK: Please email Kristina Ballard – khristina.ballard@springbranchisd.com

Kinder: https://forms.gle/nUY8N6iPo83FAAbg6

The K teachers will monitor the form and post responses to questions here:

Kindergarten: https://www.smore.com/cqrkn

Additionally, Adriane Mraz has offered to serve as the parent contact for any ‘parent specific’ questions about PK or Kinder at Wilchester. She can be reached by email at adriane.meredith@gmail.com or by phone at 281-814-3944.

Birthday Book Club

 

The Birthday Book Club is a great way to honor birthdays at Wilchester and enhance our school library!

If you choose to participate in this program, visit our online wishlist at Blue Willow Bookshop and select a book your child would enjoy. It is fine to purchase a book elsewhere, but please look at the wish list for ideas.

All Birthday Books will receive a special label inside the book cover, the recipients will get a shout out on the morning announcements, and they will be the first to read the new books. When the recipients are finished reading, the books will be returned to the library for others to enjoy (once library check out becomes available).

We will begin delivering the first round of Birthday Books in October.  Please have books ordered by September 15th to guarantee an October delivery. This allows us time to receive the books, process them in the library system, and “quarantine” them before delivery.

If your child’s birthday was over the summer or is in September, feel free to celebrate them at any time during the school year!

Questions? Contact Cassie Greenway (cassie.greenway@gmail.com) or Leslie Valentine (leslievalentine@hotmail.com)
