Kindergarten Coming to Elementary School Orientation Event

Your child’s first day at school is approaching!

In May every year, HWDSB elementary school welcomes families and children for Kindergarten Orientation. This event is a great opportunity to get a glimpse of what’s in store in September.

At Kindergarten orientation, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with your school’s caring team of educators, visit your child’s class, and learn about what the program has to offer. Please contact your local elementary school, or visit your home school’s website for more information about the event.

To view online resources prior to your visit, see the Kindergarten Orientation web page. Here, you’ll find video tours of what happens on a typical day in Kindergarten, narrative videos based on presentations the school gives at their events, videos to help families of children with special educational needs, and more.

Over the last few months, you may have noticed some of the tiny astronauts in our new Kindergarten materials. Today, we’re excited to share a behind-the-scenes photoshoot featuring Kindergarten Elementary students Helen Detwiler, Inarra and Marshall. The countdown to Kindergarten continues!
