"Here’s to another very successful week.  Being together again is delightful!!  TOGETHER WE MAKE GREEN VALLEY" - Mrs. Grim

first Day of School 2021-2022

Please plan on staying with your TK / Kinder student on the first day of school. Not only is the first day an opportunity for you and your child to get to know your teacher, classroom, and new friends, but we also have a parent-only meeting scheduled to share important information about the school year ahead. This is a shortened day from 8:15-9:45.

Mark your calendar - August 12: Back to School Night  from 6:30-7:30!

TK / kINDERgarten

Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten / Kindergarten at Green Valley! We will start the year by encouraging students to listen and follow directions. "Good manners" and "good friends" will be important topics!   

In our TK / Kindergarten class:

  • We share everything.
  • We play fair and take turns.
  • We are kind to one another. Friends are important and worth keeping.
  • We listen to one another. When we're working on a problem, two heads are better than one.
  • We put things back where they go.
  • We tell people how we feel about the things we do.
  • We exercise our bodies every day. It helps us feel better and makes us ready to learn.
  • We have people read to us every day. It opens the world to us.
  • We experiment with writing. It will help us to remember things.
  • We sing, dance and draw pictures. It makes learning fun.
  • We look everywhere. We talk to one another. We notice things.
  • We take care of our classroom.

tk / Kinder Bell Schedule

Dear TK / Kindergarten Parents,

Welcome to Green Valley!  Each year I receive many email messages about the 2021-22 Bell Schedule and I want to make sure everyone understands how the year begins at Green Valley.  Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten is a big milestone for your child and for you. 

Our program always starts with a very short day, 8:15am-9:45 amThis is a time for parents and children to meet the teacher together and get to know each other.  

The entire TK / Kindergarten team and I look forward to meeting you and your children on Tuesday, August 10th.  This is an exciting time of year and we are busy getting ready to embrace your young learners.

Morning Drop-Off

Your child should go directly to the Kindergarten yard. However children should not be on campus alone before 8:10 am because there is no supervision in the Kindergarten yard until that time. Please stay with your child until supervision arrives at 8:15 am. When the bell rings your child will line up outside their classroom.


At dismissal, the teacher will walk the children outside the front gate and stay with them until their parent or child care arrives. Kids' Country will pick up outside the gate as well. Please be prompt in picking up :)

Snack Time

Please send a healthy snack and drink to school with your child every day; even if they say they don’t want it.                                                                                             healthy
