Birch Grove Community School
2021-2022 Kindergarten Information
(Must be 5 by September 1, 2021)
We normally invite soon-to-be-Kindergarteners to join us here during the school year for a half day in the K/1 classroom with activities and projects planned just for them. The half-day would end with Community Lunch, where parents and family could join in! This year however, Kindergarten Round-Up will look different as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of students, staff, and families.
Kindergarten Information Meeting and School Tours: Tuesday, May 4 from 3:30-6:30 Tour the school and see classrooms, gym, library and check out the outdoor opportunities available. Meet teachers, staff, and administration to find out about our school:
• Licensed, Skilled, and Caring Teachers – Our K/1 teacher, Ms. Knottski, holds a Master’s Degree in Teaching
