Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!

Parent Night

Wednesday, August 8, 2018 will be Parent Information Night for all incoming TK and Kindergarten students. We will begin at 6:00 P.M. in the multi-purpose room. Hope to see all parents there!

School Starts Wednesday, August 15th at 8:00 A.M.!

Start preparing now by beginning to move your child's bedtime back by fifteen minutes each evening until it is at 7:30. And begin to get up at the time needed to be at school by 7:50.  It is recommended that four and five year old children get 11 hours of sleep each evening.

What your child needs to bring to school

Your child needs the following items for school:

  • a full sized back pack (no wheels) to carry their items to and from school. Children do not need to bring crayons, glue, scissors, markers or other like items to school.  A folder will be provided for each child to use to carry papers. 
  • a bath or beach towel for rest time
  •  a blue, white, or yellow t-shirt to make our college t-shirts
  •  a change of clothes, including underwear and socks, in case of an accident.

Please use a sharpie marker to put your child's name on their backpack, towel, lunch box, sweater and any other item they bring to school. If you need help providing any of these items, please let me know.

Thank you.

UC Berkeley Bear t-shirts

Each classroom at Monte Vista has adopted a college. Our TK college is UC Berkeley, home of the California Golden Bears! During the third week of school, students will be making a bear t-shirt to wear each Wednesday. A white, blue, or yellow t-shirt is needed. Please send one in with your child as soon as you can. Here's a picture of how they came out last year.
