We Are Listening! -

You are invited to sign up for a listening conference!
Listening Conference Guiding Questions
A listening conference gives you, the parent an opportunity to connect with and tell us about your child.   Our role will be to listen and learn more about your child and home-life. The conferences are an optional opportunity, can be held in person or on the phone, and are intended to be brief (approx. 15 min).
Available conference times are listed below.  Please select 2 or 3 times that you would like to meet and email Mrs. Hoyt (

To assist you in the preparing your thoughts, we will forward a form for you to complete and bring along to the meeting. The questions are a guide to focus our conversation, however you are welcome to share anything you feel would be pertinent.   Please bring completed form to our conference so that I may have it to reference. Thank you for sharing your son/daughter with us!

Welcome Room 103 Families

Welcome to Kindergarten Room 103 at Pine Glen! We can not wait to meet all of our incoming students and families. Letters will be mailed out shortly to students and their parents. Below is a summary of what those letters cover.

- Thursday, September 8th is our kindergarten orientation.  This is an important day for both parents and students as we will have lots of
information to share and will hopefully answer many of the questions you may have.

-Be sure to bring contact information for cell phones, emergency contacts and medical information as there will be many forms to complete.

-In the note addressed to students I invited them to do two things:
1) Help me by drawing a picture of your home. We will begin the
year with an exploration of houses and styles (like those of
the 3 little pigs made of straw, stick and brick!).
2) Share a picture or video of themselves and a statement
about a favorite summer activity by emailing me.  I will post
these messages on our class blog!
