Welcome to Kilmer Elementary Kindergarten! Kindergarten is one of the most vital experiences in a child's life. It creates a feeling of self-confidence and brings opportunities for learning that have a lifelong impact on a child's later success. By providing a positive atmosphere where a child can work and play and by offering developmentally appropriate activities, we will support the development of responsible and independent learners who can function successfully in school and society.
We look forward to our partnership with you during this special year!

First Day of Kindergarten 2021
We would like to welcome you to Kindergarten and to our family here at Kilmer Elementary. In order to be sure your child has a great first day we have a staggered start for incoming kindergarteners. This means that the class is divided into two sections and each section has a different “first” day of school. This allows for students to get comfortable with their teacher and classroom in a small group setting. Section A students will attend their first day of kindergarten Wednesday, August 18th. Section B students will attend their first day of kindergarten Thursday, August 19th. ALL kindergarteners will attend their second day of school together on Friday, August 20th just like normal schedule. PLEASE BE ON THE WATCH FOR A LETTER IN THE MAIL INFORMING YOU OF YOUR CHILD'S ASSIGNED FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN.
The first day will follow the regular Kindergarten schedule: 9:00a.m - 4:00 p.m. Your child may enter the classroom through the exterior door on the west side of the building - The classroom door will be labeled with our name on the door. Doors will be open at 9:00 a.m. Parents may pick up their child at the same location. Students riding the bus home will be escorted to their bus each day at dismissal and parents can meet them at their neighborhood bus stop.
Please don’t forget to attend the Welcome Back/ Ice Cream Social on Tuesday, August 17th from 2-4pm - open house style. This is a time to meet your teacher and bring in school supplies! So please bring your school supplies on the 17th. Label all folders, 3 ring binder, rest towel, and backpack with your child’s first and last name.
We look forward to meeting all of our new kindergarten friends and their families!
Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Cavera, and Mrs. Gerlach
