Incoming Kindergarten Info & Survey

Incoming Kindergarten Info & Survey

Welcome to Deer Creek Kindergarten 2019-2020!  We are excited about meeting our new kindergarten students and know that this is an emotional time for you and your child.  Our goal is to partner with you to provide the best learning environment and supports for each student.  Our kindergarten team will strive to provide your child with an environment that:

  • Is physically and emotionally safe
  • Provides strong instructional foundation in core areas
  • Celebrates the accomplishments and character of each child
  • Models and teaches appropriate problem solving and social skills


To provide the best possible class rosters, this protocol below will be followed.  We do not accept parent requests for specific teachers.  After reading the following information, please complete the survey at the bottom of this page.

August 13--Kindergarten Orientation  2:30 - 4:00

During this orientation, we will share information about a Day in the Life of a Kindergarten Student and Deer Creek facility and operational expectations.  

We will also collect information about your student which will help us create the best possible rosters.

August 15--Day One of School

Students will meet in assigned to color groups, not to teachers.  In the morning your student will receive a wristband to identify the day’s color group as well as a wristband to identify dismissal method (car/walker/after school program).

Students will engage in a variety of learning activities and learn about Deer Creek expectations and opportunities.  During these activities, teachers will observe and record insight to assist in the class roster construction process.  At the end of the day, staff will meet to discuss the day and propose any group adjustments for further data collection.

August 16--Day Two of School

Students will meet in assigned color groups, not to teachers; these color groups may be adjusted based on Day 1 feedback.  Students will continue to go through rotations of activities and learning about Deer Creek.  Again, teachers will observe and record insight to assist in the class roster construction process.  At the end of the day, staff will meet to discuss feedback and finalize classroom rosters.

August 17--Saturday

Class rosters will be finalized and teachers will communicate with each parent/family to welcome your child into her classroom.

August 19

Your child will be in his/her 2019-2020 classroom home!
