PLANETARIUM OPEN HOUSE for Parent Volunteers
The Planetarium committee will hold Open Houses twice every month until May to help parent volunteers with prepping for their lessons and exploring the dome. Please visit the Planetarium Training page or check the Planetarium Calendar for dates and times.
Incoming Kindergarten Families
Information will be sent home next week requesting information on prospective students and providing the opportunity to register for one of our two Kindergarten Coffees, scheduled for February 23rd and March 9th both at 9:15 AM. These informational coffees are designed to give parents some insight into a day in the life of a kindergarten student, and the chance to have questions answered. Please share this information with your neighbors who have a child that will be 5 years of age by Sept. 1st. Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled for April 27 and 28. At orientation you will bring your paperwork to register your child and bring your child so that the teaching staff can meet them and work with them for short time. Please call the WAES front office to register or with any questions.
