Kindergarten Parent Information Nights

Posted on Feb. 01, 2016

Grins from ear to ear, excitement & laughter, wide-eyed wonderment coupled with the gathering of pint sized children signals the beginning of an educational journey for future Sylvania students. Kindergarten Information Night has started this week at Central Trail, Highland and Hill View concluding next week with Maplewood, Stranahan, Sylvan and Whiteford.

Talking with the families and our future kindergarteners underscored for me the significance of what these parents are entrusting to us over the next thirteen years with their children. The role we perform as teachers, support staff and administrators in fostering a desire for learning amongst not only our future students, but for all of our students is unparalleled.

As I watched the anticipation and enthusiasm as these little boys and girls meet their teachers and administrators for the first time, I knew the trust placed in us is well deserved.  The positive interactions were carried over from these individual conversations to parents and kids alike as the teachers then spoke to the entire group about what to expect next year. I know the teachers were just as reassuring for the parents.

Events like this fill me with the faith and the confidence that we will continue to earn the trust given to all of us by these families for their children.
