For those children that are starting kinder in the fall, does your elementary school do any sort of classroom visits before school starts? Do you know who your child's teacher is yet? When do you usually find those things out?

She'll be continuing in the same school for another year of kindergarten (2nd year) so she's already familiar with everything. As for teacher, I don't know who it will be till the first day of school. They sometimes keep the same teacher for the second year, other times they shuffle the kids around. There are 3 K teachers, so we'll see in September.

We find out who Katie has mid-August. She will have the chance to visit her school in late August as well.

Our school starts in the beginning of August, and they have meet the teacher the night before. We are starting at a new school this year. So even though we should get teacher assignments in the mail at the end of this month, it won't mean anything to us. I am so excited and nervous. I am seriously contemplating letting them ride the bus too. Ahhh! I cannot believe my baby girls will both be in all day school in a month!

I briefly met Ellie's teacher when I toured her school a few months ago.
I can't say I remember much about her. As for having an evening Classroom visit or Open house, I'm not sure. I should find out this week when I drop off her registration.

I think we find out his teacher a few weeks before school. He has already been to the school 3 times. once for registration, then they had an open house for incoming kinder kids, and another time for a tour we took. He also goes in next week for a kinder assessment, so hopefully he will be familiar enough with the school by then! He also has tball at the schools ball field every week so we talk about it often.

Our school does the staggered entrance as well, and I'm not quite sure how that works. Apparently, the day before school starts and the actual day school starts 9(for my older kids) the kindergarten teachers have conferences. What we will conference about I don't know, since it's before they've spent any time with the kids. Carrie will be along for that, invited or not, since there is no one else to watch her. Then days 2-5 (W, Th, F) a third of the class will attend each day. We don't know what day that will be yet, or who her teacher will be. I met all three at orientation in the spring, and they all seemed nice. Finally, the following Monday she will go to school with her whole class for the first "real day."

It seems complicated! All I know is that I am going to have to fake pose a first-day of school picture with all three kids in it.
