Kindergarten Orientation & Sneak Peek


With just a few precious weeks of summer left, we are busy preparing for another school year.  In an attempt to satisfy your curiosity and familiarize our students and families with their new classroom assignments for the 2014-2015 school year, we are pleased to invite you and your children to attend our Kindergarten Orientation and Sneak Peek as scheduled below. For the Sneak Peek, all students (new and old) are encouraged to attend with their parents/guardians.  Please know that bus cards with homeroom assignments and other important information will be mailed home on August 22, 2014.


1:30PM – 2:30PM

2:45PM – 3:30PM

This is a great opportunity for our Parkland students to come and get a sneak peek of their new classroom. Please use this time to assist your child in finding the best route to his or her new classroom, get acclimated, and observe the general layout of the room.  Please do not disturb any of the materials in the rooms and properly supervise your child during your visit. We look forward to meeting and working with you throughout the school year.

Week of May 26-30

  • Parkland School District will implement a new Standards Based Report Card during the 2014-2015 school year.  A committee of teachers and administrators has been working all year to develop a tool that will help inform parents and students about the achievement of grade level expectations.  Each week for the next 5 weeks, please visit your school’s e-communication site to learn more about our new reporting tool and why Parkland is moving to Standards Based Report Cards.  The clips are short and informative and serve as an introduction.  Parent information sessions will be held this summer and in the fall.  #1:  5 Facts from PSD about Standards Based Report Cards
