Starting with Stories at Holly

 

May 23 & May 30   Holly Library  9:00 – 10:00 a.m.

 

The countdown to kindergarten has begun, with Holly Elementary hosting a program called “Starting With Stories” for all children attending kindergarten in September of 2017. Parents and 2017 Kindergarten students should attend together. Babysitting will be provided for siblings.

 

The program will focus on important topics to help families’ transition to kindergarten and promote success. It offers parents an opportunity to learn more about kindergarten and how to support their children’s academic, social, and physical transition into school. It is also designed to help the children get excited for the transition to kindergarten and ease their comfort within their future learning environment. The children will enjoy singing, playing with new friends and listening to stories. You will also receive free books to share with your child.

 

Starting With Stories is designed with guidance from our teachers and the District’s Early Learning Coordinator.

Starting Kindergarten is a milestone. The Kindergarten year is one of the most important years in your child’s school career; it is a time when attitudes toward school and learning are strongly influenced. Building a strong home-school connection is an important foundation for school success. Please consider joining us for Starting With Stories. We are excited to get to know you and your child!

Parking Lot - Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures
Please note that we continue to have the Pick Up/Drop Off zone along the side of the parking lot closest to the field. Parents are not to leave their cars - your child is to meet you there if that is the plan. Your child can see you from the parking lot corner near the turn-about or from the field. Parking is available along the other side of the parking lot by the sidewalk and hedge. We also have parking in the middle of the lot and there is also parking on the West side of the school at Association Park and the Turf Parking lot. Finally, please watch for students. Pedestrians (students/parents) are to use the walkways, paths, sidewalks and crosswalks while around the parking lot. Reminder that there are 2 PAC stalls reserved for specific families who bid for the priviledge of using them exclusively. Please leave those empty for those 2 families. Drivers, please use absolute caution in our lot for the safety of our children.
Our school phone number is 604-946-0218; Absentee Line: 604-946-5938.If your child is going to be away, please call and leave a message.
