2015-kindergarten-orientation-1Beginning formal schooling in kindergarten is a big step in the life of a small child. At Governor Mifflin, we are committed to fostering a smooth transition from preschool and home environments to full-day kindergarten. Our Kindergarten Orientation program, Mustang Prep, is designed to familiarize families with the Governor Mifflin schools, staff, and services.

To maximize their child’s successful transition to school, families should participate in their building’s Kindergarten Orientation program in July. During this two-hour session, students will meet the kindergarten teachers, reading specialists, guidance counselor, nurse, librarian, art, music, and gym teachers. They will tour the school, create a “Get Ready for School” craft, listen to a story, and learn about school bus safety. Each child also participates in an individually-administered kindergarten readiness assessment on this day. This assessment provides valuable information to teachers about your child’s readiness skills as they plan for the upcoming school year.

Parents, too, are active participants in the Kindergarten Orientation program. During the orientation session, you will meet with the building principal and staff to learn about the school’s policies and procedures, and more about the exciting year ahead. Parents will meet their child’s kindergarten teacher and gather classroom-specific information on Back-to-School night in August.

We welcome you to the Governor Mifflin Family and look forward to seeing you in July!
